*Setup and cleanup time for Homax TexPro vs texture hopper gun
Just finishing up a new addition, and needed to match the existing orange peel ceiling to a brand new one. What a great opportunity to try out this Sprayer!
Setting up the sprayer was easy enough. The case is well organized, and the manual is thorough. Hooked it up to a compressor, inserted a cartridge, and i'm off to the races!
After adjusting to get the proper settings, and testing out the spray on some spare drywall, i began spraying the ceiling. Things were going well, until about a minute in. There was a SPLAT, and a large blob of texture was shot onto the ceiling. Confused, i stopped, wiped it off, tested the sprayer again, and then continued. Another 30 or so seconds later, and SPLAT. The same thing. Like a disgusting, thick mucus dripping sneeze, the sprayer would ruin a perfectly good area of texture.
Well to make a long story short, this kept happening. Over and over and over again. Each time, i would have to put down the sprayer, get some paper towels, grab the stool, climb up to wipe the area thoroughly, climb down and then pick up the sprayer again. This got annoying - real quick, and greatly decreased my efficiency in texturing the ceiling.
It didn't matter what settings i tried for the pressure. High or low on the nozzle, and high or low on the compressor. No effect. Every 30 or so seconds, there would be a huge SPLAT and i would have to clean up the mess and then texture that area again.
What a royal pain.
How did it eventually look? Not great. It didn't have the orange peel bumpiness as expected. This tubed texture compound is more like a viscus putty. And when it is sprayed on the wall, it ends up being more "stringy" than bumpy. See the photos. This is NOT Orange Peel, and it didn't match the existing texture.
The coverage for the cartridges was also much less than expected. I had a contractors box of 6 tubes, which needed to cover a ceiling of ~ 350 sqft. This should have been no problem, as each tube claims to cover up to 100 sqft, and is nearly double my need. Alas, it fell short, and i ran out, not even being able to complete the ceiling. Running to Home Depot to purchase more, i discovered they only sell them in packs of 6, not individually. I opted to purchase two standard orange peel spray cans instead, as the hassle was just not worth it.
So a job that should have taken me perhaps one hour of spraying, ended up taking 4. And while the results may not have been horrendous (the ceiling did get somewhat textured, after all) the experience sure was.
Stick with a hopper.

I was a bit leery of this Homax TexPro texture system sprayer, but after using it for a while, it has made a believer out of me.
This is a spray gun for spraying ceiling and wall texture coatings. There is no hopper to fill because it uses prefilled cartridges. Now while the cartridges appear to be very pricey, when you figure your labor for mixing, filling, and cleaning a hopper type of spray gun, this spray system can actually save you quite a bit of time and money.
There’s nothing to spill with this system. You load the cartridge in, set your air, and spray. I like the fact that it has a pressure gauge built right into the side of the gun (See photo) as well as a regulator. It comes with its own storage carrying case, and extra gasket seals. It even includes quick disconnects for your air hose.
This gun allows you to texture coat areas that are difficult to reach with a hopper style sprayer. Spraying the ceiling in a closet for example with a hopper style system usually ends up with material raining down on you. With a cartridge system you can aim the gun straight up and not have any material spill out.
Cleanup is easy, it even comes with a brush for cleaning out the orifices. This sprayer can be cleaned in a small sink, where a hopper style sprayer you pretty much need a wash tub or a garden hose outside in a secluded area. They claim that it’s a lot lighter than a hopper style sprayer, but the gun weighs about six and a half pounds, and a full cartridge weighs about 3 pounds, so fully loaded it comes in at 9 and a half pounds plus any air hose you’d be lifting. So, depending how much material you have in a hopper system, I’m not sure which is heavier or lighter. You do need an air compressor that will provide 2.6 cubic feet of air per minute.
We have this miserable knock down texture on the ceiling and the walls. Had to do a recent ceiling repair and wasn’t sure I could match up the texture. Tried this product and you decide! I primed the patched area but can you tell it was a repair? I can’t tell! Easy to use. Just install a cartridge, test it and do your thing! Easy cartridges as simple to install and use. Clean up takes minutes.
Homax TexPro Texture System Sprayer with Durable Carry Case and case of texture. This is a nice texture gun system. I'm use to a hopper style texture gun so this is really different. The light weight is nice, clean up is quick and easy. I did have to use a videos to learn how to use it. It is easy to dial in to get the pattern you need. The tunes are easy to use. The only con I have seen with it the price of the tube is kind of high in comparison to a box of texture. For the price of a hopper gun and a few boxes of texture, is about equal to the price of this gun, but you also have to mix and there is a lot more clean up. So I guess you pick mixing and clean up or convenience.
I wanted this product to see if it would make touch easier. After using it on a small job, I can definitely say it is quicker and easier. It is much easier to handle than my other texture sprayer. And it is super easy to clean. One cartridge will cover between 40-100 sq. ft. of wall depending on the texture your are going for. So, if I am going to do a lot (a whole room or more), then I will probably still use my other sprayer for large job. But since I mostly have patches to cover in rent houses, This will be getting the majority of the work from now on.
The details: The sprayer is made of heavy duty metal and rubberized components for drop protection. Everything is included except the cartridges and your air compressor and hose. It even comes with spare parts. I weighed mine at 6 pounds 11.3 oz and a light texture cartridge at 2 pounds 13.5 oz. So combined it weighed just over 9.5 pounds fully loaded. The cartridges hold 28 oz of material. It is best to use the cartridge the same day that you open it.
I have two small bedrooms rooms with textured ceilings, and both need repairs (or replacing). Right at the moment the price to get someone to come out for a small job is frightfully expensive in my area, so I am going to use the texture spray system to attempt repairs. The spray gun itself is well-made; everything comes apart easily for cleanup. There is an on-board pressure adjuster, and it comes with three different-sized nozzles. I was going to spray some test patters this morning to figure out how to best match the (two different) ceiling textures, but I ended up going through the 58-page well-written and illustrated manual instead. After reading that, I'll keep my spray patters for the day of repair; between nozzle size, cartridge and pressure adjustment, I should be able to match both ceilings. But if not, I want to have the entire room masked so I can just redo both ceilings.
I wanted to finish my garage ceiling with texture and wanted a way to apply it evenly. This Homax texture spray system is excellent for applying texture. I like that all it required was a compressor which I have. The kit comes with a six pack of texture cartridges in a seperate box. Also a plus is that once set up, just insert a cartridge and it's ready to spray. Homax has video instructions on line which helped me to properly adjust the pressure settings, choose the proper nozzle and regulator. Less labor and shorter time.
Homax TexPro Texture System Sprayer
This is a great way to add texture to your walls and ceilings, I have the texture hopper and while its great for large areas, this sprayer is so much faster and easier when doing smaller jobs. Clean-up is a breeze, consisting of only 4 small parts that you clean-up. It even comes with the pipe cleaner brush to do it. This sprayer has a nice case so you can keep everything together and they include extra parts such as gaskets and extra small pieces that may get lost with use. The cartridge system makes texturing easy to do, not having to mix it and test whether it’s the right consistency or not. They make 2 types of textures, one for a smoother look and then the heavier one for knock down style texturing. I used this spray gun on a small area to see how it would work out and it went amazing. Easier than what I hoped for, and a slick system that’s got me spoiled now. Check out the photos for yourself.
I have always, always found the hopper gun, unruly, undependable, generally a hassle, can we reinvent the wheel, "NO", but THEY can reimagine the texture gun. PPG DID OUTRIGHT GOOD JOB. This gun is no joke, feels good, looks good, works well, granted I have not used it on a sizeable task. But empirically this tool will make doing task faster, more efficient, and produce a even result, no more variance with the mud. Granted the cannisters are pricier to a box of mud, but the end result far surpasses the cost of the cannister. i have elected to note on the pictures points of interest. want to make money, with quality, get theis gun.
I am going to use this TexPro Texture System Sprayer to repair my damaged indoor ceiling drywall, I choose this TexPro Texture System because it's going to be faster and lighter than a traditional hopper gun, not to mention that it's less mess to clean up.
