The sponge is thick if you start rolling it the paint should come through

This is the worst product ever designed, even when the paint is full, the end caps holding the sponge comes out and paint starts to leak everywhere. Waste of money buying this product.

How long does it for paint to absorb on sponge

I didn’t dilute the paint I pour it straight in. It does take a few minutes I just keep rolling it until it starts to come through. Maybe 5 minutes.

Can you use wood stain in the roller?

1 answer

Marty K

I think that wood stain would be too thin and would tend to run out of the cover even while filling and while rolling.

Paint won't flow, I'm using crown emulsion. Any suggestions?

I used dulux which wasn’t extremely thick. Although info gives you advice regarding humidity and thinning the paint I didn’t thin mine down. Mine took quite some rolling to get the paint flowing even after moistening the roller as instructed. All adverts, I believe show very sloppy paint. Either way mine still splashed on the handle and my hands. If you do thin it I think it’s trial and error with regard the coverage. Hope this helps.

Quigasked

What type of paint can u use?

2 answers

Its so heavy, you'd have to use a very thin paint for it to go through. It clogs too. Seriously, use a good paintbrush and roller it's much quicker than wasting your time trying to get the paint pro to work for you.

Tom

I fillled mine with normal paint, filled it to the top, took a fair few minutes of rolling to soak through. Job done not one drip and works twice as fast as a brush.

After I filled the edger with paint I then loaded a roller tray with paint to and rolled the edger in that until the paint started to flow I then cleaned the plastic strip on the edger and I was good to go

Phil

I found my edger tool totally useless too had the same problem when I inspected the edger i found that the foam was too thin so that the edger was just rolling on plastic discs on either side and the foam was making little or no contact with surface to be painted again another inoperable part of this product.

can i use paint runner pro with decking oil?

2 answers

BillyC

The one I tried before only suitable for water base paint (read from the leaflet in the box). Please read your instructions. I use sheep skin pad (from Bunning) to paint my deck every year. Its easy to use and quick application no matter water based or oil base paint like deck oil. All the best.

Pammy

Sadly this product is not suitable for use with any paint what so ever from what I can tell. Go for a conventional good quality roller which is vastly superior. Using this product will result in getting bits of foam and streaks all over your wall, which you will then have to peel off and remwdy before ending up using a conventional roller after all. Complete waste of money, time and effort.
