    Yes, indeed. Isn`t the mix ratio you have to figure somehow dependant on pressure washer and cannon flow (Feed Rate)?

    I`d mess that up for sure...me and math ain`t best of friends.

    Coatings=crack: Now we are talking with some BH Auto-Foam
    Budgetplan it`s not so extremly important with the dilution ratio. It`s just that some don`t say the dilution ratio in the foamcannon bottle. As that are big differences between the setups depending on the PW and the foamcannon and different foamcannon orifices and also with the chemical mix setting you have it set on. Think that BH Auto-Foam has a recommended dilution of 4% when it`s on the paint. This is quite strong dilution IMO and you go through the Auto-Foam very fast. If your setup has around 1:20 from the highest chemical mix setting on the foamcannon. To get the 4% you want to have a dilution ratio of 1:25. So you basicly have concentrate Auto-Foam in the foamcannon bottle and then the highest chemical mix setting on the foamcannon and just dial it down a little on the chemical mix setting on the foamcannon to get the 1:25/4% dilution. I usually dilute it to 1:4 in the foamcannon bottle and the highest chemical mix setting on the foamcannon and it`s enough for me. Sometimes I just have concentrate Auto-Foam in the foamcannon bottle and dial in the chemical mix setting on the foamcannon until I`m satisfied with the foam. And remember that Auto-Foam is not for show with shaving cream thick foam LOL. You want something in the middle to a little thinner foam. Also since it`s priced at around $20 for 5L in the UK they can have these high/low dilutions. So they don`t care much if they are highly concentrated or not. I have been tested my way to where it suits me and my setup. If you us it in a foam pump pressure spray bottle it`s 1:25 as the strongest but you can go up to 1:50 and still getting good results. And all depends on the amount of dirt and road film you have. Also don`t waste it and just get the paint covered in a thin layer of foam. Most foamcannon setup blast out the foam very fast. A wide spread on the nozzle tip helps rather than a smaller width IME. That way you don`t need to be lay on so much of the solution in the foamcannon bottle.

    Was picking up my last BF order yesterday. Not wondering why it where late from the delivering company. They had broken the Bilt Hamber Surfex HD 5L jug so it where bone dry inside of the jug. But what do you think that the smart-asses did? They put all of the wet products with the Surfex HD on them in a big plastic bag and sealed it. Then put it in a new cardboard package with the old shipping information cut out and tape on the new package. And still delivered it to me. When I opened the package I directly noticed the smell of the Surfex HD. So today it`s getting in contact with the webshop customer service and see how they can help me with an empty BH Surfex HD 5L jug and some other products that where destroyed like the 3M masking tape.

    Does it count as unboxing if you picked up directly?

    I will probably pick up an IK 12 pro and apply that way. Been looking up dilutions for cannons on average and seems to be 8 to 16 oz in 32oz measure ment. I’m going to try and figure flow rate of my set up to use in spring.

    Will test soon at 1 to 3 as this seems to be a good guesstimate

    So you said you use 1 to 4 dilution? 1000 ml bottle 250ml of snow foam and 750ml water?

    Picked this up at my local harbor freight for $41. Seems promising.

    Went to Griots for some glass polish and glass sealant. Was NOT gonna buy the ceramic 3-1 as I don’t need another topper.... always can use another can of foaming tire cleaner. Think it will be a good maintenance cleaner when I coat tires.

    On the bright side the did match their Facebook 3-1 coupon even tho it expired.

    If it is the same internally as the astro then that is a great deal. I have had the astro one for over two years and only thing wrong is the rubber pad on the bottom delaminated. I paid about 70 for it. Looking forward to hearing how well this works.
