Cheap foam gun?

I thought I had seen a thread about a fairly inexpensive foam gun... ? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Cheap foam gun?

Do you mean foam canon/lance? The type that attaches onto a pressure washer?

If so, I would suggest typing "foam blaster" into google and you will find what you are looking for.

Re: Cheap foam gun?

Can a foam gun / canon not be used with a regular garden hose? I don't have a pw.

Also reading, Im not sure if i really need a foam gun now... seems like a a lot of debate as to weather it is worth it or not..

Foam gun is for a garden hose
Foam cannon/lance is for a pressure washer

Re: Cheap foam gun?

Foam cannons (for pw) or foam guns (for hoses) are definitely more of a "luxury item"... I find them particularly useful when stripping LSP prior to a correction job, or when a car is particularly dirty, but they are definitely not a necessary tool to have.

Re: Cheap foam gun?

Ace hardware sells a smaller version of the Gilmore foam gun and it's like $20 if I remember correctly. I don't think you can beat that

I bought it and must say it works extremely well for me, I was surprised at the results.
The one I bought has a rubber tip at the end of the nozzle.

Re: Cheap foam gun?

just buy a real (gilmour) foam gun and be done with it. it may cost a little more than some would like to pay, but it will last forever and you won't waste money in the long run...
