Renewing Waterproof coating on tent fly

I know this doesn't pertain to actual raft gear but it is pertinent to river trips. I want to recoat my tent fly instead of buying a new tent. Does anyone have experience or recommendations for a good waterproof treatment?

I have personally never used the stuff (I should probably wash my ski gear) but I have a couple friends who use this on their goretex gear and swear by it.

They also have a spray on version that I imagine would work better for your context.

Walmart sells a can of silicon spray. It has a blaze orange lid and will be in the camping section. I works great. $6 a can. I have sprayed almost everything you can imagine with the stuff, boots, tents, sun shades, backpack. pants, it works.

It is called Silicone Water Guard

I have used both of the products in the two previous posts and prefer the silicone cheap stuff. Better on seams IMO.
