    Default Snowfoam?

    After seeing Rich's video I'm looking to get some but there appears to be a variety, which one would people recommend? or it all the same?

    i got mine from Mark at autobrite. I got the lance and 5 litres of snow foam and its spot on, works a treat and is fun to use think they are about £55 but not 100% as i bought quite a lot of stuff all at the same time off him.

    I've already got a karcher with various lances, one including the bottle attachment so was just looking at the foam

    theres a place fairly local selling it for £5 (one of the links above) so I might just get that and try it, see whats it like, can't go wrong I suppose for a fiver!

    what lance have you got tho? cos from what ive been told when using snow foam the lance u buy is a litre bottle and you use 1 inch of snowfoam then fill the rest up with warm water so with the little ones you get with pressure washers i dont know how you would do it to achieve the same results as having the proper lance.

    i just went for the stuff that was recommended as others have used it and had no problems, i didnt wanna just buy cheap stuff as at the end of the day your covering your car with it and if there is any harmull chemicals in it you could wreck your car for the sake of saving a £5 or £6 and end up paying out ££££££ for a respray but thats just my opinion

    yes its only a little bottle on the karcher, about 6" tall

    but if I still put 1" of snowfoam in the bottom, fill up with warm water, all that will happen is the foam will just be thicker

    what could possibly go wrong?

    nothing i guess, good luck with it just cant see it foaming up as well as the proper bottle with the proper valve thing on the top, there is a few pics on here of someone using snowfoam with a little lance and in my oppinion it was no where near the kind of foam as u get with the proper bottle..
