This is my official customer Paint Zoom review. I don’t hide any complaints or problems. But I have to be honest and say after using the Paint Zoom sprayer for quite some time now I really don’t have any complaints or problems to reveal. Simply said the Paint Zoom is the most reliable paint sprayer I have ever owned.
Even though I live in Vancouver, Canada I think this review would apply if you live in the U.S. or any other country.
Paint Zoom Paint Spraying Review
I have used the Paint Zoom to spray paint and stain. In this section I focus on paint.
I use the Paint Zoom on interior, exterior, satin, silk, flat, latex types of paint. Pretty much I have used it on about every type of paint you would use around a home either inside or outside. Probably the only thing that I haven’t painted is my car. I have read where people do use the Paint Zoom to paint their cars but mine doesn’t need it right now. Maybe in the future.
I found that if I follow the instructions on the DVD and the owner’s manual that came with my Paint Zoom I have no problems. I think getting the best paint results boils down to following the instructions and just doing it enough times that you get a feel for the sprayer.
The biggest thing in getting a good paint job is getting the paint thickness so it flows through the Paint Zoom smoothly. The little viscosity cup is the key to that. I have found using the recommendations on how much to thin that are in the user manual pretty much works every time. When I first got it I thought since the Paint Zoom sprayer was so light it wasn’t very powerful so I thinned out my paint more then it was recommended. I found I didn’t need to do that. The best paint coverage comes from thinning as directed. Generally I use 10% water to paint to thin out the paint.
At first I thought the paint container on the sprayer was way too small. I figured it would take me forever to paint a room because I would have to be constantly filling up the container. What I found out is I fill up the Paint Zoom container about as often as I use to fill up my paint roller tray with pain.
I also found out that my paint goes a lot further. I use less paint to cover the same area now then I used with a roller. That was a very pleasant surprise. I like saving money on paint!
I really like how light weight the entire sprayer is, even when the paint container is full of paint. I just through the Paint Zoom shoulder strap on my shoulder and start painting away. The weight has never been an issue. I have shoulder bags that weigh more then the Paint Zoom.
Paint Zoom Stain Spraying Review
Using the Paint Zoom for stain couldn’t be easier. I just pour the stain right into the paint container adjust the paint flow dial and start staining. When I am done I just rinse everything out and let it dry before I put it away.
Having used several expensive and cheap paint sprayers I would have to say the Paint Zoom is the best paint sprayer for the money. It has been very reliable, easy to use, easy to clean and it was very affordable on my budget.
I also liked that when you buy it from their official site you get a full 30-day unconditional money back satisfaction guarantee. No hassle to return it if you don’t like it. The $25 worth of free drop cloths and painters tape is nice too.
I hope my review of the Paint Zoom was helpful to you. Have fun painting!
