    Default foaming

    i;ve read through a guide of how to get the perfect finish on your car.well it says you spray on the snow foam,let it dwell,then spray up with the pressure washer,then again and spray down.well i understand the spray up and spray down,but for doing the sprayin would i need to switch over the lance back to the standard one for the wash it down,or can i wash it down with the foam lance,obviously with out the foam bottle on though.or do you jsut let it dwell and run off,then get straight on with the mitt and buckets?.what do you regular snow foamers normally do?

    The lance is a whole unit and you disconnect that and refit the original pressure piece

    Reconnect the standard lance to remove the foam. I then wash the car as normal with a wash mitt and two buckets. The foam (at least the stuff I'm using) is just there to loosen the dirt.

    Ask Mark. My Karcher came in 3 pieces - Trigger, Hose and Main Unit but pretty sure the hose would need the appropriate adaptors to fit the unit and trigger
