Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth it Purchased this sprayer because it clearly says in the product description details that it works for ceilings and use with latex paint. Yeah...definitely should have rolled my ceilings. The sprayer simply doesn't put out a wide enough spray pattern evenly enough to make ceilings an efficient project. My shoulders are killing me after one small bedroom was completed and about 3/4 of another. I'm sure it will be great for the smaller projects I have coming up but the description was misleading and this is simply not the right tool for the job if you're painting ceilings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It died I have had this sprayer just about 1 year. First project was a set of outdoor stairs and small landing area. Sprayer did a fine job. Now it is time to paint my house. Half way through the project the sprayer motor stopped. I had been painting the house in sections and because of my schedule, there was a day or more resting period between sections. I cleaned the sprayer completely after each use. It is dead and just about a year old. It did a fine job painting but does me no good if it is not working.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected I bought the sprayer to stain my deck railings. Started out as claimed but began to spray air without the trigger being touched, then shortly began dripping stain from the nozzle even with the product control set to minimum. There was far more overspray than I expected. But , I will say tht it did cleanup very easily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from False Advertising Bought the sprayer two months ago. Control Painter clearly states on outside of box: Simple setup. Fill cup: Unthinned paint or stain. Q and A here says thinning of latex paint required. I called tech this morning and they verify thinning required. Thank you, Wagner, for costing me 4 hours of vacation time allocated to painting. 5 times faster my rear end. You guys should be ashamed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DID THE JOB - EASY TO LEARN Bought the Control Painter to paint a long picket fence. Works great! Saved a lot of time and effort over painting by roller or brushes. Easy to learn and use. Easy to clean up. Would have given it 5 stars except I can't find a replacement filter anywhere - not even on Wagner's site.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked great. For a while. Bought 2 weeks ago. Worked very well with thick semisolid stain--no dilution needed. Did the whole deck very nicely. Last project I tried to spray primer on the garage. It splattered then stopped and then started leaking. The leak pushed primer in the motor and it seized and will no longer works. This is very easy to use and assemble and I did the same procedure as the deck. In short, I don't feel it was user error.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for stain on fences I bought this sprayer to paint a 6-foot privacy fence with solid water-based stain. It took about 4 hours to fully paint 165 feet of 6-foot fence, and the sprayer worked perfectly without overheating. There was no need to thin the stain. It can spatter just a bit, but on the fence material it's completely unnoticeable once the stain dries. It took about 3.5 gallons of stain to cover the fence, and I didn't have any trouble with show-through. The sprayer is easy to handle, although it can be a bit heavy when the cup is full of paint. The instructions are clear. The only cons are: 1. it takes WAY more than 5 minutes to completely clean. It took about 10 minutes to clean after I had to stop for a while, and about 25 minutes to completely clean when I was all finished. 2. The overspray is a bit harder to control than I would have liked. But I'm happy with the sprayer, and with the results.

Can the Control Painter be used to spray polyurethane?

Asked by: Stacie111
Thank you for the inquiry ! Control Paint can be used to spray polyurethane. Water-based polyurethane might required some thinning. With an oil-based polyurethane, Do not spray or clean with liquids having a flash point of less than 100ºF (38ºC), reference the paint can. Flash point is the temperature at which a fluid can produce enough vapor to ignite. Please give our technical support a call at 1-800-328-8251 if you need further assistance.

Can I paint a ceiling with this, or is that a mistake? Is there like a youtube channel with how to vids?

Asked by: crex
If you haven't started on the ceiling, don't. I'm about 8 hours in and have two small bedroom ceilings done. This sprayer struggles with the angles and the latex ceiling paint. Lots of spitting and overspray and now mine is oozing paint when the trigger isn't depressed after a few hours of operation and one cleaning per the included instructions. Rent an airless sprayer if there is a lot of ceiling and if not, just roll it with good paint and save the $100 and headache of this sprayer.

Hi, my name isTerry and I just purchased the control paint sprayer not realizing that it was only for exterior. Is there another Nozzle that I could purchase to make it interior as well? I should have got the double duty. Can you recommend a solution? 

Asked by: Tandy
There is no requirement that this sprayer only be used outdoors. With the iSpray nozzle you will get a roller like texture when spraying unthinned latex paint.This is fine for your walls, they were probably rolled previously. But for your trim you should add a Detail Finish nozzle, #529013, which is in the manual listed under compatible accessories. For more help call us at 1-800-328-8251.
