I'm a pro they can't give these away and the paint is really expensive that fits in pods
Hope this helps. Dulux paint on the decline too imo

hi hudds town.... any tips on painting then mate as I have a high landing/stairs to paint tomorrow ! :-) (p.s. I couldnt get one of the half price paintpods - tried 3 stores and rang 4 others!!)

hundreds of us got the paintpod from b and q recently for 1.49 so the half price paint is interesting!

im with macman, im going to paint my room soon and i have old peeling paint in patches, what is the best thing to use to cover that all up before painting another colour over it. Also what paint would you recommend. Sorry to hijack the thread a bit too macman.

Even at half price is still expensive just use normal paint in your empty paint pod

I'm in the middle of fully rennovating a flat just now. According to my plasterer/decorator you can either:

1. Keep scraping like crazy until you have all the old patchy paint off.

or

2. Gyproc easy fill 45. Far better than all the polycell stuff according to decorators. I used that polycell smooth over stuff in a previous place and it did do the job but it was a real pain to apply and get an even finish. I wouldn't use it again.

or

3. Put lining paper up before painting.

or

4. Get the wall/room re-skimmed.

I decided I want an even finish so I'm going for option 4 as I plan to paint straight onto the walls.

Hi macman / as19791
I'd recomend vinyl matt on cielings and a soft sheen finish on the walls esp in staircase if you use matt it'll need doing again in six months esp if you've kids.
As for the flaking paint i'd scrape it back down , rub down with sandpaper then put some oil based undercoat on to seal it let it dry overnight then mix some thin filler and use a caulk board to skim over it ( as re skimming would be expensive and spoils the effect of the skirtings esp if you've 9" scroll etc.
Get some decent brushes (dulux dec centres have a sale at the moment) and decent roller sleeves
wash them out first to get rid of loose pile.
Hope this helps although its hard to predict without seeing the job

Nothing on the website about this offer.
#10
Get an extendable roller pole and a roller arm that fits on the end.
also cut in (paint allround edges and light fittings) Then roll the rest
#11
Just painted my living room with one of these system. Does save some time and probably uses less paint and gives a nice finish. Will be on the look out for paint deals when I've got more rooms to do.

i can testify these are useless. you would be better off buying some homebase paint (which by the way has very much improved), a scuttle and a proffesional roller. you can fancy yourself a free painting pole from a mop handle.

never used these prefer a decent roller with decentish brushes for awkward bits (best harris ones are fine, avoid cheap ones unless you like brush hairs on your walls! i use cheap nasty brushes to mix paint)

depends how high the celiing is from you...if poss id use an extendable pole with roller.....corners would be tricky to do properly though

or you can get ladder platforms which make job easier, buy or hire....maybe a bit pricey though

If Dulux are discontinuing the Paint Pod what is the point of this post?

Cold from me i am afraid as the product isn't that good
#17
Wife got one to do our three rooms and I read the reviews and was not looking forward to using it,

Then....very surprised.

I painted the kids room (pink) in about 1 and a half hours, the roller was fantastic and have to say the other rooms in going to be a doddle. The cleaning of it was simple as well, clean the roller like you do with any other normal roller, then the tube simply connects to the water supply (you can use the tap connector or you can put it straight onto the wee plug under the sink that a diswasher would connect too) and hey presto, in about 10 minutes, the tube is clean.

Maybe I've just been lucky to get a decent one, but it gets a 9/10 from me.

Could I ask which is your preferred paint brand please?

We have had alot of trouble with dulux white vinyl matt (drying diff shades and flashing on the cutting in.
Also the black gloss for the exterior has not been good.
But having said that the dulux soft sheen is still a good product but pricey.But thats what i use at home its not shiney like silk and not flat like matt but inbetween.Most firms now do this finish Crown Macphersons leyland etc.
