    Default snowfoam question

    hi there everyone, want to start using snow foam on my car, been looking on the clean your car website at the lance's for pressure washers. at the min i only have a little halfords own one will this be powerfull enough? also what lance adaptor will i need to make it work?

    also seen this on clean your car, will the water pressure from an outside tap and hose pipe be enough pressure? http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washin.../prod_329.html

    I use an ordinary hosepipe on an outside tap, with a Gulmour foam gun. It does the trick for me. But admitedly it is not as "foamy" as when a "say" Karcher presure washer is used. It still softens the dirt and it comes off easily enough though, especcialy if there is a good coating of wax on the car.

    I would recommend auto-brite direct there guys are often on here and they give some sound advice and sort us all out.

    To answer the question, snowfoam wont work to full effect without buying a proper foam lance that attaches onto your original lance. Here is a link with a few videos of what you will get if you buy the foam lance http://shop.autobritedirect.co.uk/au...ions-305-p.asp

    If you give them a buzz they sould be able to tell you what connection does your pressure washer
