Can I seal dock pier before lake fills back up?

5 months ago

I just added on to my 10-15 year old fresh water dock. The existing wood is in good condition so I'm keeping the joist and piers.

I wasn't planning on sealing my new wood since it's ground contact pressure treated yellow pine, is this okay or do I need to seal it now?

Can I seal the existing 4 piers before the water fills up? If so, what product can I use to protect the wood and not harm the aquatic life since it's just a little pond (6000 sq ft).
