Frequently Asked Questions About Wagner Flexio 3000
Can I paint my fence using this equipment?
Yes, you can. You must make sure that you have an extension cord that is long enough to allow you to reach the fence area and be able to lift the gun to the height of the fence.
Remember that you will be working down the fence around the perimeter of your yard. You will need a long extension cord or you will need to re-plug the spray paint equipment into new outlets.
Can you thin paint with water or do you need to use mineral spirits?
You can thin water based paints with water. If the instructions on the paint container say that you can clean the paint up using water then you will be able to use water to thin your paint. If the manufacturer instructs you to use a paint thinner or mineral spirits to clean up your painting tools then you need to use a mineral spirit to thin your paint.
When you are thinning paint you want to add your water or mineral spirits in small increments at a time. Never add more than one quarter cup of thinning agent, and as you get closer to reaching the perfect mixture add less thinning liquid at a time. Be sure that you stir the paint thoroughly after each water or mineral spirit addition so you get all of the paint brought up from the bottom of the container.
