You are missing the fun of washing a car if you are not using a foam cannon. Using a foam cannon is not only fun, it is also faster, and does an excellent job of getting your car(s) clean with the least amount of effort. This is important if you wash your car in a clement that is hot and humid, were excursion maybe an issue. Here, using a foam cannon has additional benefits. For a moderately dirty car, the action of the foam will allow dirt to drop off the car without you having to touch the car with a wash mitt. For heavier dirt and grime, you may have to lightly use a wash mitt. So, let the soap do its work and don't rinse it off right away as you would using the standard method for washing your car. Additionally, using a foam cannon, I can wash three cars with light dirt within 30 minutes, with minimal effort. That is a major benefit for me. This way, I can give more TLC to my weekend toy, my Corvette. And yes, the Vette gets the foam cannon we well. Two things are required to use a foam cannon; A power washer, and proper car wash soap. About soap. Be sure to buy car wash soap designed for use with foam cannons. Otherwise, you will not get the foaming action needed for good cleaning. As me how I know this.
When combined with my Karcher K5, this gets five stars. The initial insertion did require more force than I thought necessary, so I would recommend attaching it to your wand without the soap container a few times to ensure it seats properly.
The dial does a good job of foam control, and once set has not required adjusting again.
Foam is good enough, but as others have stated, it does not remain super thick for long. However; to be fair I am using a relatively inexpensive car wash soap not designed specifically for foam guns, so my results may differ from your yours.
I may order soap designed for this type of application and update my results, but so far very pleased.
Awesome. Works perfect with my Karcher pressure washer. Foam that comes out is shaving cream thick. Definetly glad I bought this. Works with any automotive soap.
Awesome! I just did this test shot to see how well it works compared to the Karcher branded one. This is all it took to sell me on it. The bottle is VERY thick plastic also....so no concern of it breaking like some of the others out there. Great purchase!
The soap in the picture is from a $6 bottle of Turtle Wax soap from the auto parts store. So don't waste your money on super expensive soap.
K'Archer pressure washers have a unique connector for attaching different attachments. This foam cannon attaches directly to my K'archer Electric Pressure Washer. I also purchased Chemical Guys Honeydew Snow Foam to use with it. The Foam Cannon produces rich foam and the consistency is adjustable. I can soap up my whole car in about 30-40 seconds. All you have to do is add a small amount of car wash soap (about 1/2 cup and mix with warm water in the foam cannon bottle. Connect to the pressure washer and start foaming your car. You can easily wash 2 cars with the foam cannon filled. I love this product and am very happy with my purchase. It seems well made.
