Dale,
I know I am late to the conversation. The biggest reason I back roll is because I live in a very hot environment. Sprayers in general trap air bubbles and when the gas is heated and cooled it can cause paint to peel off of the substrate. I essentially use a sprayer to get paint from the bucket to the wall. 2 guys on a crew (1 spraying, 1 rolling) can paint a typical 1500 sq' house in a couple of days this way, more importantly we don't get called back to repair our work in 6 months to a year. some of the guys will also talk about smaller tip sizes, check with the manufacturer of your paint for proper tip sizes, most Behr paints require a 0.017" diameter tip. I have found it hard to find a small fan with that size orifice (217, 317, 417...etc). I would highly suggest a sprayer in general, but there is still some work in getting things done right.

Answer: 
Hi Dale,
Back rolling is used to even and spread out coatings or to add a stippled finish. A stippled finish is much easier to match if the wall needs to be repaired later.
It is purely up to you to add the back rolling process.

Hello Dale!
Back rolling or back brushing are techniques used to help even the coating and promote penetration into the wood when using stain.
The speed with which you're able to apply the coating increases as compared to painting by hand.
However, the size of the project is my landmark for spraying versus rolling.

Hello Dale!
Back rolling or back brushing are techniques used to help even the coating and promote penetration into the wood when using stain.
The speed with which you're able to apply the coating increases as compared to painting by hand.
However, the size of the project is my landmark for spraying versus rolling.
Small projects simply are not worth spraying and cleanup.
Mid-size projects begin to be time savers.
And large projects will certainly benefit from spraying.
I use my Graco with the volume control turned down to prevent over-application. And I commonly work without assistance.
But if you have extra help, you can turn the volume up and work even faster while your assistant back rolls the surface.
NOTE: I always prefer controlling the spray rather than blowing a large amount of paint on the wall and then smoothing. Read Less

I never back roll unless I get a drip, the sprayers you can get today put a nice coat on if you know how to use the sprayer correctly. So don't back roll unless a customer requests it...not necessary if you are doing your own painting

Answer: 
The point of rolling after you spray is to either remove any runs, or it also offers a more even and complete coverage.
Trust me, for the time it takes to run a roller over the surface you just painted in comparison to running the roller in a pan of paint is minimal. The paint job will come out much better.
Get a helper to run a roller as you paint, you'll be suprised how fast you can get it done.

One of the most common mistakes with an airless sprayer is overlapping the paint strokes. This will make back rolling more likely. The unit comes with a video, its a great way to learn how to paint with an airless sprayer. There are also many good videos online that can help you learn the do's and don'ts. Sometimes you have a siding profile that may require back rolling after spraying. You can experiment with different pressure settings on this unit. Start off with the lowest pressure that gives you even coverage then increase the pressure till you have the pattern that covers without building up paint on the surface. It takes a few minutes to get a feel for this type of painting. Going to a smaller fan or angle tip can reduce or eliminate this problem. By having a tip with a narrow fan you can spray a smaller area and reduce your chances of paint build-up. If memory serves these units come with a tip for latex paint, which is relatively thick, you can buy others for thinner paints, like stains and lacquers. Read Less

It would be very hard to spray small pieces since this puts out much more paint compared to a compressed air paint set-up. You may want to look into one of the smaller hand held airless paint sprayers since they tend to work at a lower pressure and less volume.

Answer: 
Hello, Thank you for purchasing a Graco X7 Paint Sprayer. I am sorry you are having issues with the tip clogging. Graco suggests that you strain all your coatings with a 1 or 5 gallon strainer before spraying. Also, check to make sure you have a clean filter inside the spray gun handle. A dirty or damaged gun filter will not catch all the large particles which can clog the spray tip. I hope this helps.

How long have you had the sprayer? I would take it back to Home Depot if that's happening. I didn't have that problem when I first purchased the sprayer. In fact, I did a lot of things wrong when I first used the sprayer, but it did a wonderful job spraying my 10 x 12 shed. In fact, it did a wonderful job.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 155 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Time Saver! I bought this because between my son in laws and have a lot to painting. I have used it on 2 outdoor decks and a gazebo. I am not sure how well it work indoors. My advice is to make sure you buy enough paint. Most paint types will tell you how many sq feet for a roller, brush or sprayer. I believe I used about 20-25% more paint BUT saved hours. Most of my issues were my own fault not the machine. Plan to cover everything and go overboard. Some spray drifted 20 feet away and got on some areas not covered. Also, when you change the nozzle position re-tighten the housing because it will leak all over your hand. I tried to change angles and it losend. Very easy to clean. July 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great right out of the box. I had a big job to do, painting the outside of the house. Including all fascia, soffites, all trim and doors. Paint sprayer was a must.. The Graco X7 was my choice after reading many reviews. It did not let me down. It worked great right out of the box, good manual and quick ref. card. My only wish not complaint, is that the gun had a swivel were it attaches to the hose. This due to the stiffness of the hose, you need to align the hose every time you reposition to spray the next part of the job. In fact a swivel at the gun and the pump end would all most eliminate this little annoyance. great sprayer. August 8, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a Great Timesaver I'm impressed...with airless painting and my new GRACO X-7! Decided to paint our 2,000 sqft ranch style home and the very large detached garage with RV parking (36 X 36). Initially, our thought was to enter into a contract to do this. On a fixed income, cost-of-doing projects is a strong consideration. After researching and looking at a number of vids on the internet and having over the years increased my skills in DIY projects, opted to buy an airless and "Go for it." Our project was estimated at 15 gallons primary color (just around 4,100 sqft of surface) and two gallons of trim color. Prep work took time and included a complete pressure washing over a three day period (and giving about a week to dry). Caulking, fixing some unwanted previous-owner openings in the pressboard siding, etc. And finally, I got to paint. That was the sweetest part of the whole project! I was amazed at how fast I could lay down paint (I alternated between the gun and a 20" extension [especially useful for the very high areas on the garage]) and then more amazed at the result. My wife and I marvel how 'clean and fresh' our two buildings look. [Note - as painting progressed, the look of "clean" prompted us to forego painting any trim a different color except around the entrance. And we opted to paint all gutters the house color.] Next project will be to paint the home inside, using the airless and the pressure roller attachment. Summary - absolutely impressed with the results, using the GRACO X-7. Pros: good instructions and vids; easy to 'get up and painting;' cleanup pretty straightforward Cons: None at this time.
