    Default Snow Foam, Tap water On or Off

    Hi Guys,

    I have a question, may sound bizarre, but here goes, When Im snow foaming the car do you have to turn on the tap for the water to mix in with the foam at this point or not. Or do you just use the water thats in the bottle to foam it.

    Usual setting it tap all the way to + then turn back 1 turn, or however much you want it to dilute.

    The tap controls how much of the mixture is the water/foam mix and how much is the tap water. Too much foam and it jsut sits on the car, sticking to it like glue. Too little, and it'll just run off like water and not clean anything.

    You want it in the middle-ish so that it runs off slowly, but is thick enough to take some of the crap with it, which is the whole point of it.

    As an example, I've done 3 cars out of one bottle with mine, with one inch of snowfoam and the rest topped up with warm water...

    2-3 mins to put foam on, 5 mins to do its work, and then however long you want to spent taking it off. If you have a well prepped and waxed car, in the summer you can pretty much do a wash with only the foam.
