Default product review soap foam gun sold at local auto store

So i always see people that detail their cars or "many cars" using a foam gun or sprayer. Toady i went to my local auto store and picked up a soap spray gun from pep boys. anyways here is my little review on it.

Price- 10 dollars

small and easy to use- not heavy

-you have the ability to turn the water on and off
you also have the ability to turn off the soap stream. so either water or soap stream.

-effectiveness- As it may not be a hundred dollar foaming soap gun it does a very good job of creating a decent amount of foam. "does not cover the car in pure white, but it does create a good amount of foam for such a bargain item.

-you can put any car soap inside the bottle- I filled the bottle half way with gold class and after i walked slowly around my car i still had nearly as much soap as i had put into the bottle.

-the only down fall to this product is the out put of water. the pressure was fine but it kind of seemed as if i was shooting a squirt gun lol

overall this is a great bargain item that works pretty dang well.

p.s. you can also buy different nozzel tips.

here is a picture of it

The one I have is a Gilmour Foamaster that can be had for around $50 (and I've seen them as cheap as $35).




Mine has lasted me a couple of years now with no clogging or other issues. The fittings are brass and the product is well constructed. The flow is adjustable and can empty the detachable container within a couple of minutes on its highest mixture setting. I like the fact that the nozzle is a basic attachment that can be replaced with most conventional ones if it ever wears out. The output is more than adequate as is the adjustability to get the right amount of “foam” on your subject.

Personally, I don’t use my foam gun for typical cleanings and will usually reserve it for presoaks (when the vehicle is really dirty) and/or anytime I want to allow the product to cling/dwell for a while (i.e. wax stripping, engine bay, under the vehicle/wheel wells/wheels, etc.).

Dude! You put that nozzle on your keys?LOL JK
I bought a soap sprayer/foaming nozzle from The Tire Rack a while back and the hand-trigger mechanism failed after only about a year of use. The one being reviewed in the thread looks more promising as there is no standard squeeze handle with a spring mechanism that can fail.
The nozzle probable sprays like a "squirt gun" to push more soap/air through than water. The more water the less foam out of any foaming mechanism/tool. Looks like a great deal, especially if you aren't washing cars for a living.
Thanks for the info/review.
