Found 28th Aug 2014
Local B&Q St Helens have all of their Dulux Paint pod 5l paint reduced to £10 except natural session which is £18. Lady in store said it's national as is being discontinued (neither of which I can prove) Absolute bargain at a tenner a tub for what used to be £30+
Available until stocks last. There was plenty in store.

Tester pots were also reduced to 50p but accessories and the pod itself were still full price.

should state natural Hessian, stupid predictive text!

Paint pod? Is this basically dulux paint in various colours for painting walls/ceilings etc?

Surprised they kept it as a stock item this long, think it lasted longer than the last (black & decker?) painting gadget/gimmick/tool though.

I know it has its critics but it works brilliantly when used properly. Much quicker than using a normal roller and really doesn't splatter at all.

Agree, I found ;

the roller head was a tad heavy, certainly heavier than a standard roller,

it was quicker to paint with against a standard roller and tray, especially when painting a high stairwell, safer too as you don't have to get off ladder/platform or bend to dip roller into tray,

Clean up was exactly the same as a standard roller, yes the tubing cleaned itself, but the head was the same as traditional roller,

Paint was a lot more expensive, but once you had the container it could be filled up with your own choice of paint, depending on brand it needs watering down slightly.


Mucking about with filling container and the same cleanup time, for me, meant traditional roller and tray was just as easy, ever so slightly longer to paint but no bad thing, your arm welcomes the rest between tray dips as opposed to continually painting with a paint pod.

Is it worth buying these for normal roller use? I know they are slightly thinner, but might still be a good buy?

£10 for 5ltrs if they have a colour your after is a decent price.

It's not 'normal' Dulux paint as you say it is every so slightly thinner.

I bought some when home bargains had them cheap quite a while ago. Just used it with a normal roller & although it is slightly thinner, it covered fine.

Marked up and scan at £24 in Durham, do might not be at all stores. Staff said they will probably reduce again soon.
