Answer: 
No, the unit is designed so when you pull the input line from the paint bucket it continues to move the paint out of the line until it's all used up. There will be some waste that is on the walls of the tube but it's such a small amount it's not worth worrying about. The time this thing saves is well worth a small amount of paint.

My experiences are that it takes some practice to develop a good technique for managing paint flow by switching the unit off and on. When applying drywall primer you need a certain cadence, but then when putting a top coat of satin finish you need a different one. I tended to put less paint on at first, not more. with regards to the paint in the tube, you can either pull the tube out of the paint can as you near the end of the project to use up the paint in the tube, or you can pull the roller cover off and pump it back in to the can. I did find that the roller cover is very saturated, and traps some paint, so there is more waste than a regular paint roller, especially as you finish the room. But it's not substantial. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes, for the most part. However, the diameter of the tube is small so the amount of paint you are wasting is minimal.
I suppose you could pull the suction house in the paint bucket out of the paint and allow the remaining paint in the hose to washed out. Though I do not believe it is worth the time considering the little amount of paint wasted.

Answer: 
I used the sidekick once. There were no leaks at all. And almost all (95%?) the paint in the tube can be used. There can be a splatter at the moment the last of the paint is pushed from the tube, and mixed with air.

Answer: 
You should be able to save most of the material in the tubing. When cleaning, your first step is to put the pickup tube in your cleaning solution and turn the unit on. Before the cleaning solution makes its way out of the tubing, it will first push out your material which you can dump back into your can.

Answer: 
Yes. There is a pressure switch on the handle. In fact you will be turning this off and on during your painting project because it really pushes the paint much faster than a painter can keep up with.

Answer: 
Yes It can. The paint flow is controlled via the button on the roller. You simply press the button to apply paint, and then press it again to stop.
It is simple but it is effective.

Answer: 
Yes. (In addition to the ON-OFF switch on the motor housing) there is a push switch on the roller handle, which you would use to control the amount of paint on the roller while painting.
(just like the toggle switch on the motor housing) the switch on the handle clicks on, or clicks off, so you don't have to maintain pressure on it to keep the paint flowing (or to let water/air through for cleaning).

The flow of paint can be stopped by pressing and releasing the button on the handle that shuts the motor off. If the flow is stopped for an extended time the roller should be wrapped in plastic to keep it from drying out.

Yes, as the roller must have holes in it to function with the sidekick. Wagner offers a couple different types of rollers that work with the SideKick.
The rollers cost around $5.00 a piece, however they can be cleaned are reused.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really good painter Easy to use and I used it to paint my new stucco outside on my garage even though it says interior only. March 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wagner Power Paint Roller Good product, easy to use and relatively easy to clean. Much faster than a regular roller/pan set up. Have found that is faster and less hassle than a spray gun also, mainly because no tarping, masking, etc is required, so you can just go to work and get the job done. Excellent on walls and also excellent on ceilings. Heed this part in the instructions, which recommend applying Vasoline to the rubber seal at the roller connection to the wand. When applied prior to each use, there are no drips. May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Review of Roller Great product ! Rollers wear out quickly. But keep several and keep on hand. June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great Made easy work of interior paint job. Will be using it on many more projects. May 16, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by it good i have not use it yet but if it work like the smart edger then i will because i have it ? April 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised but I would not decribe cleaning as "Easy" Works as long as you clean it all after each use or break longer than an hour. Gets a bit heavy and does use a lot of paint (1/3 to 1/2 times more than regular roller). March 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great for 2 minutes The product was easy enough to set up and use. Unfortunately the handle (made from plastic) broke and fell apart about 2 minutes into painting. I had to complete the job using a regular roller. I was able to salvage most of the paint from the powered roller. I cleaned the product (which was pretty easy and straight forward) and returned the item the same day I purchased it for a full refund. March 7, 2016
