Flexio 590 Sprayer
this product would have been a great product but they need to improve on it
I'm a general contractor I've been painting commercial buildings and houses and industrial buildings for about 25 years..and I went ahead and bought..this product thinking its lightweight doesn't take up alot of space as far as the commercials size: sprayers..the problem with the product that I had it doesn't put out enough pressure.the it doesn't spray a good finishing coat leaves lines in the paint..and the tip got clogged up on me..have to soak it in paint thinner
and my second time using it.the tip was in spraying out the paint no more it was like I was just throwing the paint on there..I have a commercial sprayer it's called the finish Pro I paid about 3500 hundred dollars for it is a conventional sprayer I could spray with the air I could take the air off and just spray with the PSI I never had a problem with one of my sprayers as long as you do maintenance on them and clean them up after every job Dell work just fine will work just fine..I think it was a good idea had the right concept but they just have to make some more improvements..that way they will be able to put out a better product

First time using Flexio 590
I just bought the unit and the first run of kitchen cupboards I was thrilled with the result and excited for the week ahead of spraying.
Next day I was filling the paint pot with paint all set to go and the sprayer just spat out paint after the trigger was released. I looked at the nosel to see a crack in the cone that holds the needle. So I had to switch to the fine finishing gun and spent a lot longer spraying my kitchen. I was upset that a new product could just break like that and am currently going to try get a new part shipped to me so I can finish what I started.

The sprayer itself worked great but for the nozzle to crack after only a couple of weeks is ridiculous.
It might not be as bad if you could find replacement parts but they are non existent.

paint tip problem
i used the isprayer for several small jobs. the first tip poured out paint when trigger released. received a second tip which worked well for most of one job but started leaking just like the first. received a third tip which leaked when tested with water. at this point i returned the sprayer.

Great Sprayer, Spend the Time Getting The Flow Right
I used the Flexio590 for painting 7 doors and about 300' of baseboard for my basement. It does a great job of spraying evenly and with the right paint and technique it leaves a very smooth finish on the materials you paint. Do make sure, though, that you have a big piece of cardboard or an area where you can make several test passes as you adjust both the airflow and the material trigger adjustor. It is easy to get the combination "wrong" and you will either get paint blobs that you'll have to roll out (not a bad technique, but annoying); or too-light spray and you'll have to move VERY SLOW to get good coverage. This is a huge leap in innovation from a clean-up and use standpoint vs. the old Wagner sprayer I have and I am happy to have this in my toolkit for future projects, small and large.

Poor backup service
Very disappointed with this product and quality of finish

Definitely not as good as compressor sprayer
I had a paint sprayer that came with an air compressor kit about 10 years ago. It sat in a drawer until I needed to finish my daughter's bed with it. The finish came out awesome! This was the first time I ever used a paint sprayer.
I then bought the Felxio 590 because of the noise and it being able to go where my air compressor can't.
I was severely disappointed in this product. The iSpray nozzle doesn't paint as much as it just throws paint at your work surface. No matter the feed volume, air velocity, or spray pattern, it would not spray a nice even coat.
The detail nozzle sprays an extremely small amount of the paint. I ended up painting a dresser with this zozzle, but it took me 8 coats to where it was presentable.
TLDR: Great idea, bad implimentation. Chep spray gun was much better.

Read the directions!!!
Understand your equipment before use. It's as simple as that. Ripping this product out of the box like a five year old on Christmas and going straight to painting will likely lead to undesirable results. This product worked flawless for a novice like me the first time wIth five minutes of practice. The directions were very clear from Wagner and there's additional content on YouTube if that isn't enough. I'm not a painter and have no relation with Wagner, but I can appreciate a good product when I find one. I'll be excited to see what longevity I can obtain since my usage is limited to a couple uses at this time.
