    What is the difference between the two hose whips we sell?

    We now have two styles of hose whips available in our tool store. The ExitFlex whip and the wireless lime hose whip. Both whip were designed with my specs and made exclusively for our Paint Life Supply store. I am getting a lot of questions about the difference between the two whips so I will answer those questions here.

    The ExitFlex whip is a wire braided whip with an inside diameter ID of 32mm and comes in 3' and 5' lengths. The custom lime whip is a wireless hose whip with an inside diameter ID of 3/16". The inside and outside diameter of the ExitFlex whip is smaller making the whip softer and more flexible. The wire also aides in grounding applications.

    The drawback to a smaller inside diameter is in theory you will not be able to run thick coatings through it. However, I have had success running all interior and exterior coatings including elastomeric coatings through the ExitFlex whip while doing residential repaints. You will just have to experiment yourself. Both hoses are rated over 5000 PSI.

    The lime whip is a soft whip with larger diameters inside and out and is wireless. Because the hose has no wire braiding, it will resist kinking which shortens the life of the hose as kinks create weak points in the hose. The lime whip also comes in 4 sizes: 3', 5', 25', and 50' lengths. These longer whips make is so you can load up a sprayer with less paint.

     

    Do we ship outside the United States?

    Our store Paint Life Supply Co ships anywhere in the world.  The only limitation is if your country has restrictions on what you can receive by postal service.  So far there has only be one country that would not allow us to send product and it was Iran.

    Put items in your cart and proceed to checkout.  Select the desired shipping method you want to use then proceed in the checkout.  Prior to making the purchase you will get a quote on shipping cost and overall cost including product and shipping.  

     

    When is your next Paint Life Academy?

    COVID 19 has put a stop on all our future instructional academies.  However, our retail location will be opening soon in Boise Idaho.  This will be the future site of our future classes.  No timeline or dates have been set at this time.  We anticipate setting dates when all COVID restriction in Idaho are lifted and the Paint Life Supply Co retail store is open in Boise on approximately November 1 2020.  We do anticipate offering all future classes FREE to all attendees.  

     

    Does the Titan sprayers come with a hose and gun?

    Both the Titan 440 Impact and 410 sprayers come complete with a 50' x 1/4" airless hose, an RX-80 gun, bottle of lubricant, and a TR-1 517 airless tip.  Check out The Idaho Painter starter kit to get all the necessary tools to make airless spraying faster and more efficient. 

     

    Can the hose whip be used with a Titian Control Max 1500 Sprayer?

    The Titan Control Max 1500, 1700, 1900, and 1700 Pro all have a proprietary gun and hose fitting that standard airless hoses will not attach to.  We have done some research and now have a 3 fittings combination in the Paint Life Supply Co. store that will make our hose whips work with these three sprayers.  The hose side needs two fittings to make a pipe x female metric fitting connection.  The gun side needs a fitting 1/4 female pipe thread x 12mm metric male to make the connection.

     

    How long is the hose that comes with the Titan sprayer?

    Both the Titan 440 Impact and 410 sprayers come complete with a 50' x 1/4" airless hose, an RX-80 gun, bottle of lubricant, and a TR-1 517 airless tip.  Check out The Idaho Painter starter kit to get all the necessary tools to make airless spraying faster and more efficient. 

     

    My spray gun spits when I use an extension with it, why?

    Airless spray guns will not spit until you add an extension to it.  The longer the extension the larger the spits.  This is created by the lag time from trigger release at the gun to the end of the extension and the slow drop in pressure.  We learn to spray with extensions by never starting and stopping on our surface to be painted.  I have a video, on Paint Life TV, on controlling spits when using an extension.  You can also use a Clean Shot valve at the end of the gun which will eliminate spits altogether.  However the Clean Shot is heavy and causes fatigue and wrist pain when spraying continuously.
