I'll have a brush flip out of my hand once in awhile but never had an actual spill that didn't happen over a drop. Did have a Boston Bull Terrier run through a tray of paint once. They had just gotten new carpet. Not MY fault it happened.

back in 85 we were spraying a apt interior in Fort Lauderdale and our rig was in the parking lot , nc so no big deal

airless hose bust and as luck has it a police car had pull in & parked next to our set up. NEVER SPRAY out of a 55 gal drum in parking lot

We looked like a bunch of work release prisoner washing a cop car

Of course it sucks when it happens to you but when the kid from SW pulls up to the construction site opens the side door of the van and two gallons fall out and spill all over the parking lot..........it's AWSOME!!!!!!!!!

We once spilled on a roof 3 stories up...

Then spilled again, because the wind took hold of the tray liner

So we bring bug sprayers and rags and steel brushes... even a garden hose

An hour later we are feeling pretty cool about our clean up skills...

Home owner says dont worry, roof is being replaced!
