    BOSS using foam sprayer?

    I`m aware that the recommended application of the BOSS products is using a foam cannon and pressure washer. But, how much of a loss in effectiveness would there be using those products in their foam sprayer, rather than foam cannon? FWIW, I have not had much luck with this foam sprayer as far as reliability goes (my second one is now not working) but when it does work (with conventional shampoo) it works well.

    Re: BOSS using foam sprayer?

    I`d love to be able to answer your question, but I`m not really sure anyone can. Will the products be less effective from a gun vs a cannon...due to the difference in foam density and dwell time, I`d say it`s more than likely....but I`m guessing you`ve already figured that part out. I`m a big fan of the Surface Wash, and if I get a break from work and a break in the weather, I`ll mix some up in the foam gun and see if I can come up with a way to measure the difference.

    The foam is not as thick, but just as effective. I’ve used it both ways without a difference in performance.

    So....just a question...How can that be if the foam thickness impacts dwell and/or bonding time (in the case of Poly Gloss)?

    I don’t think that the thickness effects the dwelling time of these products. Although the foam cannon will produce thicker foam, I’ve seen no difference in the performance of the product. Which I believe is why they recommend it for any of the foaming devices they make.

    Mike,

    Using the foam gun (not foam cannon) is their surface wash any better than their brilliant shampoo?

    Is there situations that Surface Wash wouldn`t/isn`t effective? I`m assuming going off roading in the mud is too much, but what about a week of driving with a bunch of days that rained? Would you still have to do a contact wash after?

    I’d say without a pressure washer yes, I’ve done mine which sits outside a lot with the wash but rinsing with the pressure washer and didn’t have to. But, just check after and see. Always better to be on the safe side.
