Customer Questions & Answers

this device seems to use up a lot of paint. does the paint inside the tubing go to waste?

Asked by: Jack
No. Just remove the roller and press the paint feed button and the paint in the hose comes out slowly and evenly and can be drained into your paint can/source.

Can paint flow be stopped?

It states that the speed of flow is adjustable. Can it also be turned off from the roller flow control?
Asked by: sitheguy
Oh yes it can. This is a really good product. I thought I would just try it, and have it fail, and return it. But I was amazed everything it says it does is does. ***** stars

Do you need to use special rollers for this unit?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes but they are available at Home Depot and don't cost that much more than good quality regular rollers.

Can this roller be used on paint with sand

Asked by: chris
I wouldn't recommend it. Mine broke after one time use but after year and a half so warranty was expired. I took it apart and the way the pumping mechanism works it would get ruined if the paint is abrasive. Basically there is a tube inside the pump that looks like the tube supplying paint to the roller. That tube gets squeezed between two rotating rollers and the housing of the pump up and down pumping the paint. If anything abrasive or hard gets inside the tube it will rupture or wear out quickly.

9 in. Smart SideKick Multi-Room Powered Roller System is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 63.

Smart Sidekick Multi-Room Powered Roller System and I was skeptical at first but then as time went by I thought this was nice because I didn't have to dip the roller in a pan several times a minute. I was amazed. I had to get use to how long to keep the button pushed in to get the right amount of paint to come out. After that wa-laa it worked. My wife and I are were surprised on how it worked and the clean up was a cinch, after the YouTube videos. We are so glad that we bought it and it cut the painting time in half. Thanks Wagner and Home Depot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK for primer or exterior but not for final interior coat because of orange peel My first impression of the power roller was that this might just be the best thing to happen to painting. That Tom Sawyer may have actually wanted to paint the fence if he had this unit. After 4 uses and 16 gallons of paint, though, its shortcomings are apparent. Positives are that it reduces paint time as you do not have to reload roller since it feeds from the inside and it eliminated drips when going from roller tray to wall. The glaring negative, though, was it's the quality of application. The roller produced significant orange peel. This was more pronounced with thicker primer/paint such as Kilz Max or Behr Marquee. There is a comment in a previous review that you need to understand how the roller applies the paint. I found this to be accurate advice. In my first use, I had too much paint in the roller and had issues with edge lines from the roller and significant drips. When I loaded less paint, edge lines were not an issue but I still had orange peel and drips from sagging paint. I believe the issue is with the quality of the Wagner rollers and it is more pronounced with heavier paint. I had this issue with Kilz Max & Behr Marquee but did not have as many issues with the lighter KIlz2 primer. Cleanup is straight-forward but I would not say it is less time than cleaning a roller as you need to run at least 3 buckets of clean water through the system. The unit will accept an extension pole but it does not fit tightly into the roller handle and thus it wiggles on the pole. Because of the need to turn on/off the pump from the handle, I found using a ladder with the roller was easier than an extension pole. A coworker with an earlier version of the unit put it in a small wagon to roll around the house. If you don't have an assistant a roller cart of some sort is a good recommendation. Given the quality of the paint application, I cannot recommend the unit. I began to use it for a 4th application and the unit struggled to pull the paint from the 5-gallon bucket. After painting a small wall I stopped and shifted to a quality manual roller and the finish the painting. When comparing the section I used the Wager Power Roller to the section with a quality manual roller, it is apparent that I will stay with a quality manual roller and only use this unit for base primer. From my experience, the unit's best use would have to be an industrial setting or exterior painting.

It is an ok product, you will be able to put some paint to many walls in a short amount of time. I am a maintenance guy so I paint all of the time. Down side to this product the roller is a bit heavy and your arm tired quick. You have to be careful of the hose it will drag on your fresh painted walls an then get paint on the floor. It is also a pain to move the unit and a gallon of paint ( has to be done at the same time). It will also take a little time for you to figure out how long and often to push the button for paint. Last, make sure you have a lot of walls to paint because this unit will take a while to clean up. If you are not good to very good at painting I would not spend the money on this unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is a cheap product. Bought this about a month ago to paint a mobile home. At first it was working just fine allowing me to apply more paint as needed. Got the shed painted the sides of the mobile home as well as the back but as I was about to use it to get the front of the mobile home painted the piston stopped moving therefore not pumping any paint anymore. If they used metal parts for this product it would probably last a lot longer and it actually would be a decent product. I Do not recommend. Andrew Elam

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Painting went super fast and clean up was not a problem – have a 5 gal. bucket available for clean-up. We painted 2 bdrms, family rm and living rm in about 4 hours. No constant refill from roller pan for paint. If the roller is full and paint starts to either drip on walls or too much paint on roller, just turn off the roller and use the paint in/on it, then turn on again when needed. Highly recommend this product.

Used it once to paint several rooms. It worked OK during that project. I cleaned it so it looked like new and put it away. Year and a half later took it out for another project (second time use) and after 5 minutes of painting heard grinding inside the pump and it stopped pumping. Called the Wagner but because it was year and a half old they would not warranty the unit. Took it apart thinking may be I can order replacement parts and found out that the flimsy gear running the pump got stripped. Wagner did not have parts for sale or any replacement parts for the pump and because it looks like a proprietary gear I cant find generic replacement. Now I am stuck with a $70 pile of cheap plastic. Consumer, be aware quality is so cheap that you can only use it one time and manufacturer will not stand by their product.
