How it works

How paint roller cleaner works

The Roller Wizard™ paint roller cleaning system can be used during any stage of a painting project, including freshening up the roller while painting, changing colors, and cleaning up after the painting is finished! This system can be used anywhere there is a water source with adequate drainage. Use with 9” long roller sleeves and up to 1” nap. Box contains: tank, hose with 2 rubber washers and faucet adapter.

1. Attach the hose to Roller Wizard manifold by turning brass fitting clockwise until tightly fitted (do not over tighten). Make sure brass fitting contains washers to prevent water leakage. (See Fig. 1)

2. Place the Roller Wizard in the sink with the label towards you. Attach the faucet adapter to faucet by first removing the faucet aerator on your sink. The faucet adapter included will work with male or female threads. If this adapter does not work on your particular faucet consult local hardware or home center for help. (See Fig. 2) (Roller Wizard may also be used outside attached to a garden hose).
Adapter Installation Hint: Rotate adapter counter clockwise until you feel or hear a click, then turn clockwise until tight.

5. While holding the roller frame in your left hand, turn on warm or cold water (do not use hot). Roller frame must lay flat on the top and so that the roller sleeve does not hit the inside of the Roller Wizard tank. (See Fig. 5)

6. Rotate manifold with your right hand until roller sleeve spins. While roller sleeve is spinning, slowly move manifold down to clean entire length of roller. Reverse sleeve spin by rotating manifold in the opposite direction. Repeat up and down motion. Continue cleaning in both directions until water is clear. (See Fig. 6)

7. For best results drying roller sleeve, the sleeve must spin clockwise. Rotate manifold so the roller sleeve is spinning clockwise as fast as possible. Maximum spin is achieved by having the water spray just touching the outside of the roller sleeve. With roller sleeve spinning, quickly rotate manifold counter-clockwise to deflect water spray from roller sleeve. Wait for roller to stop spinning, turn off water, open lid and remove roller. Roller sleeve will be slightly damp and ready to store or use again. (See Fig. 7)

Helpful Hints By placing the Roller Wizard paint roller cleaning system into the sink with the front label toward you, this will allow you to hold the paint roller in your left hand and move the manifold with your right. If you wish to use your right hand on the paint roller and the manifold with your left, turn the tank so the front label is away from you. Practice to see which position you prefer.
