Can the Paint Pot Pro be used as a paint tray placed on a floor?
Yes absolutely. The pot can be placed on the ground and used as a paint tray. It can even be used with a roller on an extension pole. The pot is balanced so it won’t tip over. The rubber mallet acts a break so that the pot does not slide on the floor. Caution:* When using the pot on the ground as a paint tray ensure that the handle is inserted into the pot.
Can any brush be used on the magnetised brush rest?
All brushes are different in terms of the amount of steel used in the ferrule. For best user experience we recommend using brushes from our Essentials Range. The ferrule on these brushes has been specifically designed for the angled magnetised brush rest on the pot. The bonus is the brushes are of superior quality and create a beautiful painting finish.
Can the Paint Pot Pro be used by left and right-handers?
The pot has been specifically designed for both left and right-handlers, such as the the belt-clip loops and tin openers.
Can the brush and mini-roller be used at the same time with the Paint Pot Pro?

Does the Paint Pot Pro support painters to abide by the three-points-of-contact ladder rule?
This is a great feature of the Paint Pot Pro. Placing the belt-clip loops over a belt will free up both your hands to securely ascent and descent ladders. The pot can remain on the belt as you are painting on the ladder. When using this feature you can also rest the brush on the magnetised brush rest to pause painting, for example when you need to answer the phone.
What size brushes and rollers can be used on the Paint Pot Pro?
The Paint Pot Pro has been designed to be used for brushes up to 100 mm’s, and jumbo mini-rollers up to 160 mm’s.
Why is the Essentials Range Decking Broom Brush better than a decking pad application?
The bristles of the Decking Broom Brush can go in between the gaps of the timber decking. The bristles also work into the timber grains. In contrast, a decking pad does not go as deep between the gaps or timber grains which means some areas of the deck remain unprotected from the outdoor climate.
Can the liners for the Paint Pot Pro be re-used?
Yes they can. The liners are made from 100% recyclable RoHS approved plastics. They are both reusable and replaceable.
