Total Painter REVIEW
Eugene Hobbs mentions in his Total Painter review – “The Total Painter sprayer stopped spraying after the first use. The Total Painter sprayer is not clogged, as it shoots air, it just won’t spray paint.”
Robert Miller complains in his review – “Total Painter has a very horrible finish. It says it’s great for chalk paint but you have to strain the paint before use.”
Harry Gilmore complains in his Total Painter review – “Total Painter failed to work after five minutes of spraying thin lacquer and the motor will not stop when the trigger is released.”
Ronald Williamson mentions in his review – “Total Painter sprayer will not work with thick viscosity paint or with ceiling paint and adding water to thin out the paint is counter intuitive to the reason you bought thick paint. Total Painter sprayer leaks, will not spray very well on horizontal surfaces (ceilings floors) and clogs so easily. Total Painter is a complete waste of time to use.”
Linda Kendricks states in her review – “Total Painter sprayer started leaking a lot. After checking the spray nozzle, cleaning the unit, straining the paint, it still leaks. Also the Total Painter unit ran really hot.
Jimmy Philips elaborates in his review – “Total Painter does not give you what you pay for. The Total Painter electric sprayer was bought to paint a custom wall unit with all wood construction, two 3′ high base cabinets, and two 6′ high bookshelves tied together with horizontal planks. After testing the sprayer and following the manufacturer’s instructions. 1. If you are painting something vertical, say the exterior of the wall unit and not the shelves or inside of the cabinet, this sprayer would have been fine. 2. The required spraying and tilting (no more than 45 degrees) of this sprayer wasn’t a joy, rather a frustrating hindrance to work with. When you tilt the gun, the sprayer goes from spraying paint to spitting paint. When you tilt the sprayer, paint will leak out of the paint cup. You will have to constantly use paper towels to contain the mess. 3. The gun’s tube, maybe 6″ long at most, constantly plugged like a bad artery, requiring constant cleaning. The “fast” job of using a sprayer was not to be. You will not save anytime in the least, rather you will be adding time to your day. A 2-hour job with the sprayer could take you more than 6 hours to get the job done. In closing, if you had a door to paint, this gun would be fine. As for being an all-around good sprayer for multiple tasks, the Total Painter is not even close.”

Q. I have 22 shutters on my house to paint. Is the Total Painter sprayer too small? Will I need to refill often? Also, will acrylic latex paint work?
A. Using the Total Painter on tables and chairs worked great. It is not too small, you will just need to refill it with that many shutters! You can use acrylic latex Ben Moore paint with a viscosity cup.
Q. Can you paint ceilings with the Total Painter?
A. No, although the Total Painter has an adjustable direction stem you will not get even coverage with the Total painter.
Q. Do you need an air compressor to use the Total Painter?
A. No, just plug and play.
Q. Using the Total Painter for the 1st time, there is only air coming out, not the water I’m testing with. What could be wrong with the Total Painter?
A. If the Total Painter is blowing air, then the motor is working. Make sure you have the fluid container screwed in tight and that the uptake stem is also seated tightly. Also check to see that the spring-loaded disc behind the nozzle is seated correctly. The springs face inward.
Q. Can the Total Painter spray down?
A. Yes, the Total Painter can spray down.
Q. What is the minimum amount of paint needed in the bottle or will it spray all the paint in the bottle?
A. Total Painter needs to have at least a third of paint in it to work.
Q. Do you have to clean out the sprayer between coats? My can of paint says that the re-coat time is 2 hours. Can I re-coat sooner?
A. If the can says to wait 2 hours to re-coat, then it’s probably too thick to use straight out the can. You’ll probably have to thin it as per instructions. The thinner the paint, the less time you’ll have to wait. The instructions say not to leave paint in the sprayer for more than 30 minutes. So if it’s a big project, like a whole room, then you might get away without having to clean it. If your paint is thin enough to pass the test in the instructions, and if you think you need 2 coats, then I would clean between coats.
Q. Has anyone experienced drippings on the product post spray?
A. When the paint is thinned to spray properly, using the supplied viscosity cup, several light coats are required. Drips and runs only happen when too much paint is applied on that coat.
Q. Does it leave a lot of paint mist in the air when you use the Total Painter?
Q. Does the Total Painter spray on its own, without a compressor?
A. Yes, just plug the Total Painter in to an extension core and get to work.

A. Try cleaning the brass nozzle where the paint comes out.
