I am always hesitant to try new products. I used a similar product without the groove last year on our old house deck and this year, the Home Depot employee highly recommended this. We have about a 1000sq ft cedar deck and decided to try it...WOW, was this awesome. Saved time and saved my back as you don't have to bend over. I just had to use the brush in a few areas if the boards were a bit too tight and the groove couldn't fit. Love it and am trying to find the refill as I couldn't find at Home Depot- so have to look elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by twalsh1490 I love this pad
This pad saved a LOT of time. It very efficiently spread my coating on a very large deck, with better coverage than a roller.
The tongue did a nice job of spreading the coating into the gaps between deck boards. Previously there would always be drips that looked simply careless. With the tongue reaching into the gaps the coating was uniform on the edges and below. It didn't just look like a careful job, it looked great!
Some gaps in my deck were a little wide. So, I either made two passes, pressing to each side, or canted the handle on an angle.
Part of my deck had very little gap between planks. For that part I used it in flat pad mode, with the handle flipped to the other side so the tongue was retracted. Worked just like a regular flat pad.
When I first looked at this tool in the store I thought it was gimmicky. There are SO MANY painting tools that promise everything: faster, better, neater, whatever. This pad actually was totally worth the cost. Very glad I got it.

For many years I applied my deck stain/waterproofer with a brush. Just happened to see this tool at the store and gave it a try. I'm glad I did. Cut my job time in half. Also saved me some back pain because I was able to apply the stain while on my feet using and extension ploe.

This is a great tool if you are planning to stain\paint your deck. IT's splash free and gets in the groves without you breaking your back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RandE Skip it. Stick to the standard pads.
Good idea but execution is not good. Pad is wider than most deck boards so if your deck is not perfectly flat and the joint between the boards is not equal the pad will only hit the high spots. Unless your deck boards are a constant and uniform distance betweeen the boards the groove piece in the down position will constantly get stuck between the boards.

This tool worked for about 5 mins and then it became stuck and it was worthless. I ended up using a roller an a brush instead.
