Not long ago I got myself a foam cannon. Turns out I needed to get the fitting that would fit my particular electric pressure washer which in my case is the AR112 AR Blue electric pressure. The fitting I thought would fit best is the "Lavor" fitting. Based on what I had read online many others with the same PW figured the same. I emailed Nick at AutoGeek and he did try to help but they just didn't offer the fitting for my PW model. So I had to get creative somehow and make it work.
Below I'm going to post pictures and describe what I did for those that may be going through the same thing.
Here is an exploded view of what I used
The AR pressure washers come with an additional wand that shoots the thin strong stream. I wasn't going to use that on a car so I figured I could use that wand to cut the end off so I can use the fitting that I knew was going to fit my handle.
) 1/4" x 1/4" brass hose barb from Home Depot. Part #LFA-197
) 2 part Multi purpose Epoxy so I can glue the brass hose barb to the wand that I cut
I purchased the Brass male nipple connector from Autogeek.
This was the initial cut I made on the wand. Not pretty so I recut it using a hacksaw. I used a 7/32 drill bit to clean the hole out and to make sure the brass barb was going to fit nice and snug.
I mixed the 2 part epoxy as per instructions on the package and put it on the brass barb end that I was inserting into the wand. I held it there for about 5 minutes. I let it sit for 24 hours before I tested it out.
I assembled the rest
and here is what it looks like
Here is a quick video I made using the modified wand. I'm using Meguiar's Ultimate Wash & Wax. I still need to dial in the amount of soap to water ratio in order to get the right consistancy. Foam Cannon Modified TEST - YouTube
The foam cannon works great. I'm sure the brass barb may be limiting the full pressure but I'm happy with it. So if you have the AR Blue pressure washer and have the additional wand try this out. Hope you've found this information useful.
