    Default snow foam application

    I have a Lavor preesure washer with a built in reservoir to hold car shampoo,
    would it be possible to use this to apply snow foam ?
    Any info. much appreciated.

    If you have any snow foam it has got to be worth a try.

    No, I don't have any at the moment, but if I find it's possible to use it I'll buy
    some, if not I'll probably take advantage of Autobrites offer of a lance and 5 lts. of snow foam

    If yours is anything like the karcher, it will only suck the resevoir at low pressure, so won`t give you a foam effect as it needs full beans, this is to prevent the foam getting into the motor which would possibly burn out due to lack of resistance ??

    Yep, like a Karcher only sucks from reservoir at low pressure, looks like the Autobrite offer then.

    Thanks.

    No it wont mate, it operates on low pressure where our lances work on high pressure giving you the foam effect..
