SMART Flow Roller is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!!!! How I spent 40 years painting without this product is beyond me. I LOATHE painting and, when we bought our new house, I was in total dread of having to paint these 15 x 15 rooms with 9 foot ceilings. A friend of mine from work was talking about how she used one of these and would never paint without one again. I looked your product up on YouTube and then promptly bought one. Let me say, if I had to buy one of these for every room in a house I would do so and consider it money well spent! I'll never paint without one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used with over 10 gallons I have had this unit for years with no issues. This product works great if you take care of it. Must clean throughly when done. I use a light coat of Vaseline on the seals before use for lubricant and make a better seal. I had this unit for around 10 years and painted multiple homes and rooms with this unit without needing to replace a seal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thing Since Canned Paint! Super easy to use, cuts time in half. No more trips back and forth to the tray to load up the roller. Works well with either thick or thinner paint. Well worth the price. TWO THUMBS UPS and FOUR STARS!* * * *

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evolution of painting I was very skeptical of this roller until it worked flawlessly through 15 gallons of paint. I primed 240 sheets of rock in a day without issues. Easy to clean as well. Will update soon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pros and cons This paint roller works well for its intended application.... however: The rollers, including the aftermarket sold separately ones, shed lint worse than a dollar store paint roller. And, it wastes a lot of paint; the entire section from the head of the plunger, down the metal arm, and the channel of space between the roller and mounting piece it covers, all useless paint that remains until it's flushed out. If a person won't look closely at the wall, or doesn't care about a speckled linty wall, nor do they care financially or environmentally about paint, then this would be the perfect tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Tool For Painting I am so thrilled to own this SMART Flow Roller. The first time I used it, I was just flawed at how great it works. It's super easy to use and the clean up is easy too. I couldn't believe how fast I was able to get my painting job done. The paint flows from the roller perfectly and evenly. It's very well made and I know I will own it and love it for years. It's the best painting tool ever! I was able to do my painting quickly, easily, and efficiently.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made my house a complete mess I purchesed this at my local hardware store this is the worst roller I have ever used the roller cover would fly off and paint would fall all over the ground and the paint was very hard to come out and never fully covered the roller I highly don't recommend this product better off just using a regular roller don't waste your time

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Painting is fun again Okay, painting is generally not much more fun than watching the grass grow, but with the Smart Flow Roller, it gets very close to being fun. Covered many more square feet today than a regular roller, clean up was easy and I can't wait until tomorrow morning when I can finish the house that I started today.

I'm looking at purchasing this to paint the inside of my home, my husbands question is.. can you purchase different rollers for it as we are painting the ceiling, walls and trim?

Asked by: Flea
There are two different roller covers you can use and it has to do with how smooth the area being painted is. For typical interior walls the 3/8" nap roller cover works great, but if you are painting a stucco wall you may want to use the 3/4" nap roller cover. You can see them both here -

The painter in your video paints in vertical strokes, rather than the traditional "W" pattern. Yet your manual states "... rollout the letter “W”. Fill it in with crosswise strokes..." So which was is the correct way to paint with the Smart Flow Roller?

Asked by: JohnRichard
Traditional rollers have a limited amount of paint. The W pattern is a technique for spreading that amount of paint evenly on a wall. The Smart Flow has a less limited amount of paint and therefore changes the spreading ability. Good luck with your projects. For more technique help call us at 1-800-328-8251.
