Dulux Paintpod Review - It really Sucks!!!
Problem: When you squeeze the trigger, the motor turns the rachet at 'B', this will then turn the rachet at the top of the tube, point 'A'. This should generate sufficient suction to draw the paint into the tube at point 'C', and all the way up the tube into the clear plastic tube and all the way to the roller.
Well in practice the paint never made it as far as the clear plastic tube.
Sounds great when you see the ads on TV.
Bought one. Got it home. Set it up. Pressed the button to start painting....
Nothing! Absolutely nothing! You can hear the motor running, but no paint is making its way up the tube to the roller.
Put Simply "IT DOES NOT WORK !!!". It is a 70 quid piece of crap.
The working part is the tube that you slip into the paint pod. Unfortunately, it is NOT powerful enough to suck the paint up the tube.
The paint pod really sucks. The colour choice is really pathetic and they charge you an arm and a leg for the specially formulated paint.
Save yourself time and money and stick with normal paint and a manual roller.
It is going back to B & Q tomorrow.
It has cost me my time, I did not get my room painted this weekend, and it will cost me a couple of gallons of petrol to take it back. Petrol is not cheap these days either. The extra money I am spending on the petrol would have paid for the normal paint that I would have used to paint the room in the first place.
That will be the last Dulux product I ever buy.
