    Foam cannon questions

    so just got a new foam cannon.
    I know you are supposed to clean it after each use.
    Do you have to flush the bottle out and fill with only clean water and run the water through?
    Or can you take the bottle off and just run the water through it and save the soapy water left in the bottle?

    after you're done using it, fill up the bottle with plain water and re-attach the foam cannon and spray for a few seconds to clear it out...

    in that case, just use an empty cup and put the top part of the cannon with the siphon hose inside to draw and spray water out and then put it back in the bottle of unused soap...

    Re: Foam cannon questions

    Does a foam cannon make it considerably easier to wash the Macan? With the pollen situation, it seems like you have wash the car every other day. I have a gas powered pressure washer (3100 psi and 2.4 gpm), would this be compatible with a foam cannon? Which cannon and what soap would you recommend? Thanks for any information

    Re: Foam cannon questions

    using the foam cannon is not mandatory it's optional. you have a high PSI pressure washer so most any foam cannon will work with it, it's usually the lower PSI electric pressure washers that have problems if any. don't know what soaps you have but try adding 3 ounces of car soap and fill the rest with warm water and have at it. turn the top knob all the way to the right so it sprays thicker and adjust the front of the cannon to your spray pattern liking by twisting...
