Customer Questions & Answers

Spare Rollers or Roller Covers

Which roller/roller covers do I need purchase as spare - website link would be awesome. Will I need to replace the roller cover every time I paint?
Asked by: Seven13
The roller cover is very durable and reusable for a long time, provided you clean it well according to the instructions. I personally use at least 5 gallons of water for cleaning the machine, although the instructions call for one gallon. But once you have the thing rigged up you may as well go for it. I don't think 1 gal. is sufficient. The roller cover gets cleaned separately, do not skimp on this step. Additional roller covers have to be purchased from Wagner, or a Wagner dealer such as Home Depot. This is not like a manual roller cover, it's special for the power roller.

If I want to paint more than one color, is it easy to clean the system and change another color?

Asked by: Tutu
It's easy enough to clean the system but it's messy and time consuming. The unit really needs to dry out between paintings. And possibly if you're changing colors you'd want to buy an extra roller cover.

Primer Application - Go or No Go?

Hi All: Rookie question - Can I use this to apply primer or not? Also, any special cleaning needs before I use it to apply paint? Thanks much!
Asked by: Seven13
Walls you're going to paint should always be cleaned first, and the method depends on how dirty and beat up they are. You can never go wrong with TSP (trisodium phosphate), but it's a harsh chemical and you need to protect your hands and also rinse the surface after washing. If the walls are pretty clean, you might be able to get away with just dusting them well, but even clean walls benefit from being washing with a mild detergent, rinsed and dried. You can use a sponge mop for this, but I think hand washing is better. A car wash sponge works well, and a fiber scrubby for bad spots. I know it takes extra time, but don't skip this step. You will get a much more professional result with clean walls. You can use any cleaning solution you like, just dilute it suitable for the surface. Ammonia is good, also Fabuloso. Something without a lot of suds. The roller doesn't need to be cleaned before using and yes, you can certainly use it for primer.

how could this be used at the end of a 6-8 foot extension

Asked by: Anonymous
If I were you I would contact the manufacturer. It comes with an extension but it's not nearly that long, only 18". As far as I know there is no extension that long, and you cannot use a regular extension with this roller. It's an integral part of the system. However, the paint tube is 16' long, so that might solve your problem.

9 in. and 3 in. Smart Powered Roller System Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes the "pain" out of "paint" The Wagner 9-inch and 3-inch SMART Power Roller System made painting easy. After reading the instruction book, setup, use, and cleanup was very straightforward. Painting our entire basement living space took less than half the time it took doing it with a traditional roller. A note: the instruction book suggests using Variable Speed 9 (VS9) if you're using the 9-inch roller, but I found that VS9 delivered too much paint for me to be able to keep up with. So, I used VS9 only to fill the roller, and then maintained my paint flow using VS3. I did not use the 3-inch smart edge roller, so this review is based entirely on the 9-inch roller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Puts out a lot of paint. This power roller is great when you have a large room and need to apply a lot of paint. Reds take a lot of coats and my wife wanted the 350 sq ft rec room red. Without this power roller, I would still be painting. Cleanup actually wasn't too bad, you just keep pumping soapy water through the system until the hose is mostly clear. If you are buying this online, I would recommend buying extra rollers since in my area you can't just pick them up at the store. You can also save money on shipping by bundling your order with rollers. The only features I gave up on were the cut-in roller and the extender rod. I still prefer to use a brush for cutting-in. The weight of the paint in the roller was too much for me to control with the extender rod. The only problem I encountered was on a couple of occasions, I bumped the reverse switch and couldn't figure out why the paint stopped flowing. A backup chime might be a nice feature. The literature says you can use this with a 5 gallon bucket, but I'm not sure the hose is long enough to reach the bottom of the pail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! System worked great for me and was MUCH easier than using traditional rollers. In a 12x12 room it took me less than half the time to complete. It seemed to use more paint than normal but that may be due to the original yellow color that was on the wall. I used 1.5 gallons of paint to do 3 coats. I followed another review & only set it on #3 or 4 and that provided plenty of paint. I just did the walls but had very little splatter and almost no mess in the room. Clean-up was easy, just a bit time consuming to get all of the paint out of all the parts. I'm actually looking forward to painting the garage in the spring since this was so easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made me a better painter. Even coverage with no Flashing. A lot of people look at the various painting tools and think about whether it will make painting faster. I don't care about speed too much. Actually applying paint doesn't take all that much time for me compared to everything else. That includes removing and repairing damaged paint and wallboard, cleaning the surface to get good adhesion, removing items and furniture, etc. Then there's all the time waiting in between coats and the cleanup afterwards. What I care about is getting a better quality paint finish. Painting is a project a lot of people try to do themselves. Anybody can grab a can of paint, a brush and roller and paint a room. However, there's a lot of skill involved in getting a good paint job. Because I have to live with a bad paint job for a long time or have to repaint I'd take a tool that makes painting slower as long as it gave me better results. Luckily tools that make painting easier usually make it faster too. Over the years I've tackled different aspects of my painting technique but one recurring problem I still contend with is flashing. It's something I see other DIY painters have issues with too. The Wagner Smart Power Roller helped me finally fix the paint flashing problem. Flashing is when you get an uneven gloss in the paint surface. It's more noticeable with higher sheen paints and under certain lighting conditions. You may paint a room one day and at night when you're done you admire your handiwork under the artificial room lights and pat yourself on the back for a job well done. The next morning you enter the room with the sun shining through a window and then you see it. And you see it every morning after that too. You can probably fix it by giving it another coat, this time trying to give a more even application but now you've already removed the drop cloths, put the furniture back in the room and cleaned all your tools. Some people only care that they started with a beige room and ended up with a red room. Me, I want the paint job to look as close as I can to a professional job. I've been able to reduce flashing by improving my technique but on that last coat, when I've been painting for a while, I'm tired, cranky and not fond of painting to begin with, my technique slips. Plus I don't do enough painting to get that much practice. It's not from cheap paint or roller covers either as I don't skimp on those. All paints, except certain ultra flat ceiling paints and primers have a bit of sheen to them so you can notice it with more than just glossy, semi-gloss and eggshell paints. Using the Wagner Smart Power Roller I was able to paint a small bathroom and get good, even coverage with no flashing. I was very happy. Keeping the roller properly loaded just meant every few seconds pressing a button for a bit. It made the application of paint faster which is important now with the new generation of low and no VOC paints that start to set up faster, can't be worked as much and don't retain a wet edge for long. Think about it. When painting the walls in even a small 10' x 10' room using a standard 9" roller you're going to have to reload your roller at least 50 times. About 12 seconds to load up the roller each time and you're saving at least 10 minutes. Clean up wasn't so bad. If you're careful, the machine mostly cleans itself except for the roller covers. I'm not that careful and I got paint on everything but scrubbing with a microfiber cloth and some warm soapy water wasn't difficult. While the Smart Power Roller was self-cleaning I was cleaning the roller cover, roller arm and other bits that are important for smooth operation. I got a little lazy and didn't clean the paint can cover and the outside of the hose. (Told you I'm a sloppy painter.) If you're more careful than I am you'll have an easier time. My biggest mistake was letting too much paint come out of the roller and it started to drip. I jumped in and started using it before practicing. Now I know to take it easy and slowly load the brush while rolling it up and down on a wall or some scrap, like cardboard. There's a bit of delay between when you press the button and when the paint oozes out of the roller which is why it's a good idea to give it short bursts instead of continually keeping the pump running. That was with the small edging roller, which does a very good job edging by the way. When I moved on to the 9" roller to fill in the walls I did a better job keeping things clean until the second coat. After the first coat, I stuck the roller in a plastic bag and inserted it into the holder on the top of the unit. Some paint oozed out of the roller and into the splatter guard so when I picked up the roller to start painting it dripped down on my hands, and then eventually on everything else I touched. Since I already had the bag over the roller I didn't need the splatter guard to catch any drips so I'll make sure it's on the top next time to prevent this from happening. The splatter guard is nice and keeps paint from splattering on other surfaces. I didn't have any paint splatter on my glasses. You have to reposition the splatter shield depending which direction you're rolling and which side any obstructions are but it is easily adjustable. I had to remove it a couple of times to get into some tight spots. It pops on and off without any effort. One of the nicest things was not having to pour a single drop of paint from the can! More importantly, not having to worry about accidentally stepping in the paint tray and leaving footprints everywhere when you forget and walk out of the room you're painting. A few spots where I couldn't reach even with the small roller I used a brush. I just loaded the brush using the roller. There are few things I wish were different. The edge guard on the small edging roller can be snapped out of place if you need it to. It doesn't unfold far enough for me. It would be nice if it folded a few degrees more so that it cleared the edge of the roller cover. This would have made it easier to get into some tighter spots. The extension wand feels flimsy and it would have been nicer if it was sturdier. It held up well though. It would be great if you could mount it on a regular telescoping pole that doesn't have paint passing through it. It would reduce bending and make it easy to change the length without having to deal with something that has paint in it. Also wish there were more options for roller covers. The Smart Power Roller comes with two 9" rollers covers. A 3/8" and a 1/2" nap The 3/8" created more stipple than the 3" cover and other roller covers I've used. It would also be nice if there was a perforated microfiber roller cover to use with high gloss paints on smooth surfaces. These are a few minor issues that can mostly be resolved by me being more careful now that I understand how it works better. The most important thing is I got a great finish that I'm very happy about!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This changed my mind about painting! I hate painting. Well, I used too. I received this item after watching the video of how it sucks the paint right out of the can and into the roller. Guess what? It works! Wagner's products are changing my opinion about painting with their line of well thought out products like this. I was pleasantly surprised how well this actually worked. I had to paint my apartment back to white before leaving and was dreading it. I had it done it a flash! It even has a drip tray on the roller so I didn't have to worry about dripping and slopping paint everywhere. Thank you Wagner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a great job I had an older model that had no speed dial on it and the paint seemed to come out rather "heavy" and using a small trimming tool got paint everywhere. This model has a variable speed dial on it that resolves that problem. This kit included 2 9" rollers and 1 3" roller or edger, perfect for the baseboards around the living room with no excess paint drippings. My walls are textured but the rough roller covered the walls nicely and the variable speed control let me put the right amount of paint on the walls. I like the "reverse" button on the system. It pulls the paint out of the tubes and paint head back in to the paint can, so there is less waste. Clean up was easy enough. Put some warm soapy water in a bucket, connect the hose and let it run and purge the residue from the system..It doesn't get any easier than that...Project time cut by at least 50% using this smart roller system...The only draw back is now the wife has plans to re-paint the rest of the house..But that's a good thing..Highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for big jobs We recently moved into our new home and this power roller came in really handy. As advertised, it drastically reduced the amount of time to put down paint. We are not professional painters, but often change colors and paint quite often. We only use the pricier higher end roller covers and equipment to get a truly level and clean finish. I was slightly apprehensive but pleasantly surprised at the finish quality the roller left. The small roller is great for tight places, but the edge guide doesn't work at all (none of them really do anyway - even the pads). I still cut in with a brush. The power roller works great. With completely un-thinned paint+primer the unit had no trouble at all getting paint to the roller. The roller coverage was very even and smooth. It's pretty foolproof and requires little to no practice or trial and error. The unit is surprisingly easy to clean. I was anticipating a lot more effort. If you've ever tried to clean latex paint out of a power painter, you will know what I mean. Water is not a good solvent and you spend twice the amount of time cleaning as painting. I'd say it took me no longer than 15 minutes to thoroughly clean everything. The only downside to this unit is it seems to waste a lot of paint. No matter how long I reversed the flow back into the can, a significant amount of paint comes out during the cleaning cycle. Overall I would definitely recommend this if you have a few rooms to paint the same color. It would also be of great value for an entire large room. For a smallish room, you'll need to factor in the clean-up time, which like I mentioned is about 15 to 20 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keep on rollin' My first use of the SMART Power Roller was to paint my upstairs hallway. Setup of the system was straightforward, and I was ready to go pretty quickly. Initially, I started with the Smart Edge Roller; I was hopeful that it would work for me and eliminate my usual careful cut-in (I don't tape). However, I didn't have much luck with it, and wasn't satisfied with the edge so I went back to the brush. I had hoped for more information on how the smart edge was supposed to work--my Owner's Manual, page 5 said "See Helpful Painting Tips, next page", but the next page only contained a repeat of the front page of the manual. Now, I was painting with BM Aura, which dries quickly, so I was slightly concerned that I've now powered up this roller, have paint in the entire length of the 16-foot hose, and have to stop to let the cut-in dry before rolling (that's how you paint with Aura). However, there was no turning back, so when the cut-in was dry (1 hour from start), I put the 9" roller on and started painting away. I was finished rolling in about 30 minutes. Towards the end, I was having trouble getting enough paint in the roller. There was still an inch and a half of paint in the can, so I suspect that the Aura may have started gumming up the system somewhat at that point. You do have to be careful with this paint. But all in all, the hall was finished. Cleanup wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Not any worse than the usual painting cleanup, only different. I didn't see much paint return to the can with the reverse button, even though I let it run for more than the suggested 2-3 minutes. I could just be that the same problem with my paint starting to dry in there. I was hoping for better results with reverse because this paint is expensive! (and I like to have enough leftover for touch-ups). Surprisingly, cleaning out the hose was a cinch, you basically use the motor to run warm soapy water through until its clean! I actually couldn't believe that the hose turned from green (my paint) back to clear again! My only grumble about this is that usually I consider roller covers disposable since they are a pain to clean. This system does require a special roller cover; it has holes in it that allow the paint to seep in. Which means I had to wash it--its still soaking. Not that easy to get medium/dark green colorants out of anything. Now that I've checked, the Wagner covers are slightly more costly than the covers I usually use, but not too bad so I still might consider tossing rather than washing covers. The way I see it, I'm still saving loads of money over hiring a painter. Final note: online, the owner's manual HAS the elusive page 6 "Helpful Painting Tips" that my printed manual lacked. That would have been "helpful" to have...
