I want to paint my basement walls. Do I need a thicker nap roller for this than a 3/8 inch one? If so, can I put it on this roller?

Asked by: Anonymous
I think you should be able to find the proper roller nap for painting anything. Just make sure the roller has holes to allow the paint to get to the nap. Ask for rollers that will work with Wagner Power Painter

Asked by: jimbo
There are affordable roller covers you get when you need to use another color. I believe they are about 4-6 dollars a piece.

do you carry parts for wagner paint sticks

Asked by: tony
There is a replacement parts list on the Home Depot website: You can call Wagner directly at 800-760-3844 to speak with customer service about ordering a replacement part. The product came with a one year warranty, so perhaps if you still have your receipt and it's been less than a year, you may be able to get a replacement at no charge.

9 in. Smart Roller with Ratchet Trigger is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 150.

I purchased this even after reading the bad reviews to paint a ceiling in a basement. For the first hour I thought this was the best invention known to man and couldn't understand how the other reviewers could rate such a magnificent product so poorly....Then it happened. The roller popped off and about a half pint of paint came spewing out all over my head, face, arms and floor. Now that big of a deal with the floor as it is concrete but if I was painting upstairs and this happened on the hardwood or tile it would be game over. Now for the actual roller. It works very nice like any nap roller. My home depot doesn't carry any of these in stock for my application a thicker nap would have worked better. The trigger works good easy to press well rolling It does take about a tube of paint to get the roller primed however sucks the paint up with no issues What causes the negative reviews of this product is a simple engineering issue. While reading the reviews and looking at the product I thought the clip came look since it is only plastic causing the roller to pop off. That is not the case at the end of the roller is a cap that holds it on and it is basically just a compression cap. So if you are rolling somewhat sideways it puts pressure on this cap and pops it off. Once is pops off it is going to keep popping off. A simple threaded end cap would have solved this issue and probably made this a five star product. Don't know how this oversite made it past the engineers. Heck weekend warrior here figured that out. Anyhow hopefully they take that suggestion and make a better product in version two. I would really like to return this however oh well it will go on a shelf until I need it again to expand my curse word library.

Seemed like a nice concept but just too many problems compared with traditional roller and pan to make it worth the fuss and cleanup. Difficult to load paint and very heavy to work overhead on ceilings but the worst problem is that the roller end comes loose on a regular occurrence, pouring paint when it does. After doing this a few times I just pitched it and went back to a regular roller.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Listen to everyone here! The concept of this roller is great. If it worked well, it'd be well worth the price. But as everyone else has said, the roller pops off repeatedly (my husband gave it to me after the 7th time, and then I managed to get by with only 2 more times). It's definitely a pressure thing, but it shouldn't happen at all. Every time, it makes a mess dripping paint everywhere. I also second the fact that it used more paint than normal and your arms end up more tired than normal. It was worth a shot... now I'm going to return it when I go buy my second gallon of paint to finish this job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Paint runs all over So so to assemble. I followed the instructions exactly, used the petroleum jelly in all the recommended places. It was difficult to get the handle to draw up the paint. I finally got some in it, and worked on priming it outside while standing in the lawn in case. I finally got it going and went inside to paint. After a couple swipes, I was thinking this might not be too bad. All of a sudden, paint comes gushing out the side. If you tilt it at all, paint gushes out. Fortunately, I was painting before the carpet installers came, because the old carpet was being trashed anyway. I got my Handyman to fiddle with it and the end result is that we threw it in the trash and went back to manual rollers. Good concept, but it needs to go back to the drawing board and reworked before I would consider buying another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't WAIST your time trying to save time with this paint roller I never take the time to do these review write-ups! After trying to use this Wagner product I thought it my duty to society to write write one!!! I will first say the concept is a good one, but, with a gallon of paint costing 35.00 and the time that not many want to spend on painting project , This roller is the biggest mess maker on the market! First of all the tube won't fill all the way with paint, The roller keeps sliding off the arm. When the roller comes off, the stored up paint in the roller instantly without warning pours out all over the floor you and the roller pole. I tried 3 times to after this happened thinking it might be me. I'm going to say it's not me... I'm going to return it ASAP! I'm also pretty sure that Home Depot will not give me another gallon of paint to replace the gallon that is in the trash on more than one roll of soaked paper towels or a new drop cloth to replace the one that were saturated with paint. A very poor product! DON"T BUY IT!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time and money I owned a similar unit years ago and never had any problems with it. This one cost me several extra hours to do a single room because of the cleanup after the roller assembly shot off the end three times!!!!!! Took it back and got my money back. Finished the job in a fraction of the time with a regular roller!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total junk After 1/4 of a gallon, the roller kept popping off which resulting in paint hemoraging all over the wall and floor. We kept at it for another few passes and after popping off 5 more times, we are throwing it in a garbage back and are returning it. It has wasted so much paint we are having to buy another gallon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Paint everywhere but the walls This product was a piece of junk. The paint wouldn't poll out and then the roller came off and would not stay on. It was a waste of paint and messier than a regular roller.
