SE Houston (Hobby), TX(Zone 9a)

I've cut some some tempered pegboard into 11" circles and I need them to be completely sealed so water won't destroy them for at least 6-8 months. They will be the base in an eBucket veggie planter that will be filled with potting soil that stays consistently damp.

I bought a gallon of Kilz (the mold inhibitor stuff) that I was told will dry to a waterproof "plastic" coating if I dip each circle and hang to dry. Please advise ASAP if you know better way to seal and/or water proof these "cookies." Would dipping them in parafin work to seal them? Once they're down in the bucket, they won't be disturbed in any way, so the coating on them won't get scratched.

Please hurry your replies.
