SMART Roller is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised... I received this roller just the other day, and took it out to check out the instructions and in particularly the quality and construction of the device. It is a very solidly built paint roller, and the moving parts seem to work smoothly. I have not used it for painting yet (it's February, after all), but I wanted to review the items' apparent quality. The paint seals on the plunger look very adequate, and the ratchet system works very well. I will update this review when I get the opportunity to put it to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lousy Roller Makes for Large Mess I bought this roller looking forward to using it to make my life easier while I painted my large downstairs area and hallway. Of course, I'm thinking I'm going to have less dripping than a traditional roller and will gladly not have the hassle of using a paint tray, oh how I was wrong. I assembled the roller and loaded it with paint, ready to tackle the job ahead of me and was immediately hit with hassle as the handle easily unscrews while you are painting. One hassle, that so far still outweighs having to use a paint tray for me... but not by much. After loading the roller with paint 3 times it is suddenly dripping and shooting paint out of the refill port when I go to add paint to the roller, all over my carpet. Needless to say I got a small portion of what I needed to complete painted and ruined sections of my flooring from the poor design. Save yourself the hassle, throw $30 in the trash instead of purchasing this or it's going to cost you even more in the cleanup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Disappointment Used this product for about 20 minutes to try to paint a ceiling. Roller came off and spilled paint all over me and the floor about 6 times. Gave up and used a conventional roller to do the job. Don't buy this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had one for years! Wife likes to paint, I like to paint fast. This will do it for you. I never had any problem with it until I needed a new roller and couldn't find a replacement for it. But had it for years and will just be buying another one to paint my basement. I recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I used the Smart Roller several times to paint the ceilings of our new house. I had no trouble using the product, and it was a real time saver. Thoroughly cleaning it after each use is crucial -- after each use, I meticulously rinsed all parts, especially the valve components, so each subsequent time it worked well. The roller could use a bit more nap, but other than that, I have no complaints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time and money! It quit working after the first 2 tubes of paint. Just quit drawing paint from the can. I tried all the troubleshooting tips to no avail. Poor design and materials. It also takes better than an hour to clean up after use.

Can this be used with an oil based stain for staining a ceiling?

We have tongue and groove installed on the ceiling of a gabled roof over a deck. It is pretty high up and am looking for something to use to apply the stain from a scaffold that goes most of the way up. Would this work with oil based stain overhead, or would it drip too much.
Asked by: Sheryl
It will work great, but you should add the splatter shield, part #0514230 to protect yourself from drips. Contact us at technical support with more questions 800-328-8251.

I've been using the smart roller for years, but occasionally the roller leaks from the roller arm seal. Can't figure out why.

Even happens on new rollers. All seals clean, in good condition and lubed properly.
Asked by: Rbybee
I'm sorry to hear that you're having leakage from the roller arm seal on your Smart Roller. That seal can leak if it has shifted off of its seat, or is under- or over-lubricated. I would make sure that there isn't too much petroleum jelly on the seal which may prevent the roller cap from making complete contact with it and allowing paint to flow past.

should my roller be damp before i start painting?

It seems like it takes a lot of paint to get the roller loaded with paint, will it help if my roller is damp first?
Asked by: katie
Wetting the roller cover will not have any affect on how the paint loads into it, and if the water were to enter the roller core, it could potentially dilute the paint and cause drips and runs. If you feel like the thickness of the nap may be an issue, you may want to wrap the roller in painters tape and then pull it back off, this will fluff the nap to provide the largest gap between fibers for the material to work through.
