Answer: 
Yes you can attach a longer handle, but a shorter one lets you control the angle of the blade for a better job at removal. You can also use standard plastic grocery bags to catch the waste. Be sure to clean product after use. I store the bag clips in a sealable sandwich bag and tape to the product so I don't loose them.

Yes. It is threaded for a standard paint roller extension (or broom handle). Any bag that fits. Too big is ok as they use metal clips to hold the bag. Changing bags is a PITA so I just emptied it when it got too heavy to hold up and scrape.

The one i used was about thirty six inches i found it close to were the scraper was. The bags will also be in that same area as the scraper or you can use any small trash bags

Answer: 
Get it good and wet with just water. Wait 3-5 minutes. It should come off like butter. If it doesn't, your ceiling is probably painted, and you'll need to perforate your paint for water to penetrate better.

It can be used without wetting the ceiling if you are using it on popcorn that has never been painted, but highly advise doing the job right and wet the ceiling, or else you are looking at a lot of dust and you will not scrape it to the drywall.

Answer: 
Sure, but it will be difficult and tiring. By allowing the ceiling to be lightly sprayed with water, it softens the material and allows this tool (or putty knife) to scrape along more easily. It's well worth the extra time and effort.

Answer: 
well, you could, but it would be really messy, dusty and would wear out the fine scraper blade pretty quickly. Just light spray of water to popcorn ceiling is all necessary as you don't want to soak it -- too heavy and gets drywall wet too. I did 4x4 area of water mist, then scrape and spray another area. Done in no time...

Thank you for contacting The Homax Group.
We recommend dampening the ceiling for easy removal of the texture. If it is not dampened, it could easily damage the ceiling leaving behind gouge marks.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 100 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works amazing at scraping Popcorn Ceilings! Very simple to do, make sure you wet the ceiling well, cover things you don't want to get messy with rosin paper and/or plastic (also sold at Home Depot), and either get a broom handle/other long handle, or use a ladder. If your ceilings have been painted you may need to wet and scrape a couple times to get down to the clean sheet rock. Then let it dry and re-texture. Be careful not to press too hard or you can scratch your sheet rock. September 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase ever This is the worst product that I have purchased in a long time. With a bag attached to catch the popcorn debris you could not see what you were doing and attach a long handle to the product even made it worst. If the product was not so dirty with popcorn debris I would have returned it and got my money back. September 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bends with use The tool functions well at first - you have to empty the bag regularly, and you will still need to cover your floor, but if you wet the popcorn material as directed it is fairly easy to remove. However, after removing about 200 sq ft of material the handle angle had changed due to bending of the bracket and it no longer worked well; I switched to a wide putty knife and finished the job. A better quality steel in the bracket that maintains the handle to scraper angle would make this a good tool. September 11, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Adequate, at best Great concept, but found it much faster to use a regular scraper. 1) As mentioned in several other posts, you can't see where you're working when the bag is attached. 2) I still lost a significant amount of ceiling material outside of the bag. So good prep is still required. 3) Once the ceiling material starts to accumulate in the bag, the bag swings back & forth with your scraping motion making it difficult to maneuver. September 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Popcorn ceiling removal Couldn't believe it this tool is the greatest ever! A breeze to use. Would definately recommend it! September 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This tool works. I tried many of the methods shown on Youtube.com. I used this tool while standing on a ladder and held the handle with blade parallel to the ceiling while scraping across the ceiling. I sprayed the ceiling with warm water first, waited a couple minutes, sprayed it again, then scraped. I usually scraped a 4x4 section of ceiling, sprayed a new section, emptied bag, scraped new section. Yes, the edge of the ceiling does need to be scraped with a smaller scraper. While scraping ceiling edge I held a mud-trough under the edge as i scraped but couldnt catch much. I could not get the Homax tool to work for me on my vaulted ceiling as the angle was difficult to manage. I used a regular metal scraper on vaulted ceiling but it was much more of a mess. I'm 65 yrs old, scraped 5 rooms, have 5 more to go, and recommend this tool! The bag doesn't catch all the popcorn but it does better than without. I also tried taping a scraper to the hose of a wetvac, but gouged the ceiling too much. The Homax tool scraped without damage. Remember, must be held parallel to the ceiling. September 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible What a waste of money. The one thing this product is designed for it can't even do marginally well. A putty knife will do about 10 times better than this. The bag attachment is flimsy and the bag falls off when it's only about a third pull. You have to scrape the same place over and over until you find just the right angle and force to make it do anything that even looks like you scraped a piece off. Save your money and the trip to Home Depot. September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Looks good but didn't work for ;me Good idea, but sure didn't work for me. No way to attach a plastic bag to it in a way that would leave a clear opening/space for the popcorn to drop into it. Couldn't figure any way to make it work. September 13, 2016
