Foam cannons, what’s all the hype about?
Every few years a revolutionary product surfaces in the car washing industry. Some of these products don’t exactly meet our expectations and don’t work as good as advertised. The water blade for drying is a great example of one of these products. It looks great on TV and in videos but when you go to use it doesn’t work too well.

The foam cannon on the other hand deserves all the attention it’s getting. If you’ve never seen a foam cannon or don’t know what a foam cannon does we’ll get you caught up fast. A foam cannon attaches to the end of an electric or gas pressure water and uses the high pressure water to sprayer a thick soapy mixture onto your car. It’s referred to as a foam cannon, well because the soap mixture that’s sprayed onto the car looks just like foam.

Now I know what thinking, why is this better than using a wash mitt or a 2 bucket washing method? It’s really simple, since a thick foam mixture is sprayed directly onto the car you don’t have to constantly dip a wash mitt into a bucket to soap up the car. The other major difference you’ll notice is the foam will cling to the car and not “run” off like a traditional car wash soap mixture. Both of these benefits make it easier to wash your car and will result in a cleaner car.
