How to Use a Paint Sprayer
How to use a paint sprayer is, of course, something that you think about only if you have to. Using a paint sprayer is just a simple matter of "point and shoot," right? Wrong. Many professional painters are called in to fix an ill-planned or botched paint job because the user just pointed and shot. However, this does not have to happen, especially if the right tool is used and a little planning is applied.
The Paint Zoom™ system, advertised nationally on television, is the right tool for the job. Rather than offering a cryptic picture manual of how to "point and shoot," the people behind Paint Zoom™ have not only produced the right system for the job, but have also provided full instructions on how to plan and execute a perfect paint job by showing home improvement enthusiasts just how to use a paint spray gun.
Starting with the identification of the different parts of the Paint Zoom™ system, the video covers proper assembly of the gun and motor units. Then there is an explanation of the parts and what they do, such as with the viscosity cup, which is used to measure the viscosity of the paint and thin it to the right consistency for the job you are completing.
How to use paint sprayers doesn't stop there. Area preparation and safety are next and most important. Then comes paint preparation, in which the use of the viscosity cup is explained. Nozzle and stream adjustment, used to control paint application, is explained. How and when to use a cross application method, as well as proper stroke size and techniques are shown. The video goes step by step right through and into clean up. There is also a full online manual to back users up with detailed answers, making the Paint Zoom™ system one of the most complete and hassle free on the market today.
