Most of us just leave the tower footing alone with no problems.
The sealer really isnt necessary for a concrete foundation.
A typical usage is for concrete floors where it is planned to paint or apply a
floor covering over the concrete. The sealer
prevents the moisture from wicking up to the surface of the concrete. Also a
vapor barrier is placed down before the concrete is poured to
minimize water absorption. I think it would be best to leave it alone so it
when it rains as you said.
