Answer: 
Try the standard roller first but keep pulling the trigger to apply a larger volum of paint. The roller will force it into the crevasses.

Answer: 
The only difference that I can tell is that the 3/4 nap roller might hold just a little bit more paint. I used the 3/8 nap on my basement wall and coverage was 100% except where there was a little honey comb holes. I suggest filling any honey comb with spackling paste first. Excellent product.

Answer: 
The roller that you use will have to be one of the Wagner rollers specifically designed for the Smart Roller system. They've got perforations on the inside of the roller cover to let the paint weep through.

Answer: 
I'd probably recommend a 3/4" roller nap for that textured surface. Make sure any roller cover you purchase is a perforated roller cover - it must have holes in the middle of it for the paint to come through.

Answer: 
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

I think Wagner has thicker rollers but I think the standard roller should work, just keep pulling the trigger to allow more paint to fill the gaps. Only Wagner rollers with holes on the inside of the roller will work.

Answer: 
You need to buy special rollers for the paint to flow through, and I had trouble finding other than the basic rollers. I wanted a longer nap, too, but couldn't find one. Good luck to you.

Answer: 
There are thicker naps that can be used with the SMART Roller. A 3/8" roller is pretty typical for sheet rock, or a surface similar in texture to sheet rock. If your basement walls are concrete, then a thicker nap may be helpful.

Answer: 
Make sure you get roller covers with small holes in the cover. Wagner has these but Home Depot has another brand that will work. The holes allow the paint to come through the cover and onto the outside of the roller without having to dip the roller in a pan. As for a roller that will work with Wagner Power Painter and they should know what you mean.

9 in. Smart Roller with Ratchet Trigger is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 148.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Some of the negative reviews made me a little concerned about this roller, but I tried it anyway and I loved it! So much so that I decided to post this review. It was so easy and convenient to use that I ended up just walking away from the drop cloth because I didn't need it. It was great! Wouldn't want to paint any other way now!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well it was a good idea. I purchased this even after reading the bad reviews to paint a ceiling i... Well it was a good idea. 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok..... Its a great concept. I bought it because I had several ceilings to paint. I don't think this was meant for ceilings. When loaded the weight of it makes it difficult to maneuver. I never considered the weight of paint and working over my head. For the ceilings I went back to to the old roller and pan. I haven't tried it on walls yet, but can see the weight being an issue again. Plus its a royal pain to clean.

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 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 Real Dud You are supposed to get paint into the tube by sucking it from a paint can. My unit sucked nothing but air. I forced paint into the tube using a large funnel. But, the paint roller fell off the spool several times while rolling on the paint. I returned the roller after trying unsuccessfully to paint 1 wall.
