You have to watch wet sanding, and I wouldn't recommend it with paper tape unless you are a pro. I won't regale you with my experience but it involved a wife and a 6 yr old daughter that were trying to 'help'.
You have to be very careful and if you hit the tape, it will start to 'pill' and spread to other parts of the wall.
I'm not an expert and I went back to drysanding, messy but better results.

Not to argue with ya, but if you are hitting the tape, you are sanding over what doesn't need to be sanded yet, the tape should be covered with a skim coat and no tape should be showing. If you are able to pill the tape, you need to stay off of it since there isn't a proper layer of mud over it to sand down yet.

All I use is paper tape, I know exactly what you are saying, been there and done that, just took a minor adjustment in my technique and no more pilling. To each there own I say, but I will never go back to dry sanding. I can wet sand twice as fast, no dust, no achy back or arms, no mess at all, if you are making a mess you have too much water, the sponge just needs to be damp. I'm in an out, quick and clean, haven't dry sanded in 6 years, ya can't make me go back to it!!!! Ya can't I say!

PS. I love texture, texture makes even a hack like me look like I know what I'm doing. Knock down is a good friend of mine.

Re: Best Emthod To Seal Off A Room During Remodel


I was at Lowes yesterday.
Next their drywall, they had a poster display that talked about the recommended procedure for taping, sanding and painting drywall.
They didn't even mention dry sanding, but rather only listed wet sanding with a sponge!!

I was sold on wet sanding because of the replies to this thread, but now that even home improvement store mention it, it surly seems like the way to go.

There is a company that goes by the name of "Protective Products"(www.protectiveproducts.com)
They have what is called a "Zip Wall" and it seems there is a similar product available from "White Cap" with the 3rd hand system.
In my opinion these are Great systems.

Re: Best Emthod To Seal Off A Room During Remodel


I believe they are back east. You can find the Zip Wall online at www.protectiveproducts.com
I ordered the 3rd hands from amazon.com and they are now on back order.
Where are you ?

White Cap has a location in San Jaun Capistrano. Fast Cap is back east although they have vendors in other locations. It is best to go to the website and order from them there.

FastCap is actually located on the west coast in Washington. They have distributors all over the United States though, there are also a few up in Canada. They have a distributor list on the website where you can search by state to see which company to purchase through. www.fastcap.com
I've seen the 3rd Hand...great product...they also have a little guy for upper cabinet installation...and recently came out with accessories.

Places I've seen in California that sell the FastCap products such as the 3rd Hand are Louis & Co, EB Bradley, MacPac and Charles McMurray

I picked up a setup I think at HD that uses a two gallon bucket with water to trap the dust instead of clogging the vac filter. It works by running the suction hose from a shop vac into the bucket above the water line then running a second hose below the water line to the sander. the dust is caught by the water and never enters the vac. works great, no dust getting through the filter.
