"Replacement items are available"
Which is presumably where they make their money.

And we've seen the manufacturer's claims, but is this as easy to clean as they say?

Frankly, this is a massive waste of money. The only useful part is that it's self-cleaning. However, with a bucket of water, an old roller cage cut off before the elbow (to create a shank) and an electric drill and you've got clean rollers in 10 minutes anyway. Another tip is to put them in the washing machine (get most of the paint out first, and don't try it with anything other than water-based paints).

Get a decent roller cage (or better still, a 12 inch roller frame and a good extending handle) and you're quids in.

I saw it on the Gadget Show, and it looks excellent.

However, the fact it uses "special" paint packs means those no doubt cost a fortune!

Hot price though, so voted hot :)

Paint packs are £29.99 and there is a limited range of colours. Doesn't "self clean" any better than the old fashioned way - I know 'cos I've had a demo.........PANTS
#6
So basically you're limited to dulux paints and probably only a certain range?

I wonder if you could refill the pods yourself. Would be worth it then, providing it was easy to do.

hmmm

Drat - I got given one of those recently - and thought it would be a good idea - until I found the SPECIAL paint pots were £30 for 5L - and I already had the paints I wanted for my jobs - so was aiming to take it into to B&Q for a credit note at £70, rather than £50 :oops:

Total waste of money, avoid
#9
seen so many returned back to where i work
#10
Looks like a gimmick. I would think of the refills as being comparitive to those of printers i.e. generally expensive.

put them in the washing machine....its either april 1st or thats one of the dumbest ideas ive ever heard...would rather throw them away...dont think my wife would too pleased if i ruined her miele washing machine :roll:
#12
absolute waste of money....... brought this to paint the house...... ended up doing it all by hand....... and not very cost effective.
#13
This is why I love this site, the advice given to ordinary Joes like me who know nothing about painting means I won't touch this now as an easy option, obviously too good to be true, like most things. Have some rep for good advice, although not so sure about the washing machine bit! :p
#14
You can use the standard paint with this system. Buy one container of the special paint pod paint and then refil it with the standard cans of paint. You will need to invest in a funnel to transfer the paint!
#15
Don't rate this at all, much prefer to do it by hand! Sounds very expensive for the replacement packs & only in limited colors, sounds naff!
#16
its rubbish dont buy in demo in stores the person paints a quarter of a roll of wall paper in same amount of time as using a roller
#17
no good DIYer will buy one oof these gimmicks, bloody useless!

Same here too... the special paints cost a fortune ;-).
#19
About 10 years ago I bought a similar system from Black and Dekker and Dulux, It worked fine, and was a bit easier than 'manual' methods. However 6 months later when I came to do the next room, no-one sold the special pain-packs.

I'll not be suckered in by this sort of thing again.

The deal may be hot, but the idea is chilly chilly cold.

The coloured paint pods are £30, the white is £20 which im pretty sure is roughly the same price for pots of Dulux Once.
#21
Bought one of these a few weeks ago and it works like a charm, 5l of paint pod is about the same as the good Q Dulex paint. I have found you actually end us using less paint than a normal 5ltr tub.
Main reason I got it was to be able to paint with out the worry and time of masking eveything up and covering the floor as I have a 2 year old.
No splatters at all and in 2 weeks (evenings only) I have almost completed downstairs and will be doing my daugthers bedroom next.
Good product - and works for me.

I do this as well and my washing machine is still working!

I would also suggest that you get most of the paint out and wrap the roller in a pillow case to reduce the noise.

The rollers come out as new. :thumbsup:

So now you're suggesting that not only does he risk his wife's wrath over using the washing machine to clean paint rollers, but also use her best pillow cases in the process?

:whistling:

I bought one last week, great idea, but the roller system only spreads the paint to the middle half of the roller, so basically takes twice as long. Took mine back to homebase for a full refund. If you like gadgets then go ahead but if you actually want to get some painting done go back to a brush and roller.
#25
I looked at getting one of these but was put off by the fact that after every 10 refills of paint you have to replace the pump. This is going to work out expensive ;-)

If you have the receipt it does not matter what price the item is now selling for, you should get a credit note for the amount you paid.

Hi, this won't affect you as you have returned yours but the reason it only comes out of the middle of the roller is because you are squeezing the trigger for a wee bit too long.

I work at B&Q and was given the full demo from the rep on Saturday and when I had a go the same thing happened to me and he explained why.

Personally I think it is a good little gadget which is very easy to use, TOTALLY splatter free (which can only be a good thing in my book!!!) and the self cleaning jobby is great, unless you leave it for 5 hours before you clean it like I did, then it's the good ol' rinse under a running tap method!

It comes with everything (apart from the paint) you need to get started including the funky triangular edging brush and the only extras you can buy if you want to are the 2m hose (it comes with 4m anyway) and an extension pole thing - both items are for doing the high part of the stairs.

But I agree totally with other posts -

Will it be just a gimmick that is removed from the shelves if it doesn't sell well? (although at the £49.99 price they were going like mad for it on Saturday)

The range of colours is far too limited (although is proposed to be increasing) A customer was all set to buy one on Sat until she realised that they didn't yet make the colour she wanted.

And, the main customer gripe is that you 'have' to use the paint pod paint. Whilst it is the same price as the 5L Dulux paint that you get mixed specially, it is about £5-£10 more than the Dulux 'off the shelf' colours.

I'd be interested to know how successful putting other paint in the canister has been for people that's for sure. I would guess that you get more splattering, because the P/P paint is quite thick, but aren't 100% sure of this.

My own opinion is that if you have a lot of decorating to do and it comes in the colour you want then it's worth a shot at £49.99 - don't forget that B&Q give you 3 months to get a refund so if you buy and aren't happy then they will give you your money back (with a receipt of course!!!) If I hadn't just decorated throughout a few months back :roll: then I would definitely have given it a go - and would also definitely have tried other paints in it just to see what happened!!! I think the worst case scenario would be that it would either block the tube or splatter everywhere.

If you are only going to use it for a couple of rooms and then shove it in the shed for a year until it's time to do more rooms, then don't bother until it has been on the market a bit longer and has shown to be successful.

HTH! ;-)
