Car wash, EZall foam gun
 
I always wanted a foam gun but the price seemed kinda high and considering I think I have mastered the two bucket method I forgot about it. Then I came upon this

the foaming is a little better than these pics show. I like it. Seemed to make the wash go faster. Instead of two bucket I did a two wash mit.

I started from the top down with clean water rinse, then soaked it in foam, then foamed while I used the mit .

I drapped the hose over my shoulder as I worked. I saved my back a little bending.

all in all very happy with the EZall.

That looks great! Where did you pick it up from? I have always looked at buying this one since it is cheaper on Amazon - Amazon.com: Gilmour 95QGFMR Foamaster II Cleaning Sprayer: Patio, Lawn & Garden
But the EZall looks like it is a great competitor if it is significantly cheaper

I paid that much but got it local here at a horse tac shop in Stafford.

It comes with 3 insert bibs to regulate the flow.

My neighbor jogging by had to stop and ask, he even asked if I would write it down for him he was so impressed with it.

I have the gilmour for the hose, and the foam gun for pressure washer(think covering the car in shaving cream). They are handy and helpful, but I continue the 2 bucket. The foam gun for pressure washer is nice especially when real dirty, foam the car, let soak a second, pressure rinse, foam again and wash, pressure rinse all in about 15 minutes if in a hurry. Helps eliminate heavier dirt getting trapped in your mitt and rubbing on the paint, and ultimately you get a better rinse of all the soap. Love these things. Do some homework though, I found my foam cannon for $60 when some of the detail websites were $90+. Chemical Guys Honeydew Snofoam, great suds in both styles, easy on your wax/sealer.

Thanks for sharing - never thought to give something like this a try, now I guess I'm gonna have to get one too! :D

One nice thing about low pressure foam guns is you can add just a teeny amount of Jet Dry to them for the final rinsing. Even on heavily waxed cars, it seems to help the water sheet off.

I still prefer a good pressure washer with a power scrubbing soft brush, then an adjustable wand for pre-soaking and rinsing. Care is needed to not remove stuff like decals, badges, and even loose paint.
