I'm at a loss, I saw a thread a few days ago where someone mentioned a relatively inexepensive foam gun at Home Depot? Search didn't have any results.

Anyone know what i'm talking about?

I think this is what you are looking for, in this Click & Brag it is in the 5th picture.

I have one of these, and it is a waste of money.

One thing that I do use on occasion is a Craftsman 20 gallon hose end sprayer. They are cheap ($10) and produce a nice amount of foam. I generally will use it with a mix of Shampoo and APC to presoak a really dirty car.

I thought it was Lowes, not Home Depot.

I got mine through Lowe's online site. It was like $6 + shipping. Works great.

I also have the Lowes foam gun and I think it works just fine.

I have one of those and I also have the $50 one that you get at Autogeek (got it as a b-day gift last year). No comparison. Soap comes out of the Lowes one in a watery mix. The Autogeek gun produces true foam.

I think it works great for $9. No, it's not the same as a Gilmour foam gun, but when I put some of CG's Citrus Wash in that puppy it works awesome. It's all about the right soap.

I just picked up one of those "foam nozzles" at WallyWorld for $3. I'll see how it works tomorrow...Not bad of a price to try it :)

using one of those $5-$10 foam nozzles don't even compare to a foam gun. if you want some soapy water that's all they're good for...
