[Princess Auto] 1 Litre Pressure Washer Foam Cannon $14.44 (Regular $24.99)

Image

Princess Auto has a pressure washer foam cannon on sale for $14.44 in store, with a discount of $10.55. Good price for a foam cannon. Same price online, but no free shipping.

If you use an electric pressure washer, out of the box it won't produce as thick of a foam, since the GPM of electric pressure washers is usually below the 2GPM minimum. But you can easily fix that by modding the foam cannon with a 1.1mm orifice. They're cheap and easy to find on amazon.

It's the exact same. I have the princess auto and the Matcc.. I took them apart and they're identical.

My pressure washer came with a foam cannon and my biggest problem is I dont really know what to put in the bottle. I tried car wash soap and that did not work as I hoped.

Bought a similar one last year. Found out most GVA street don't allow soap car washing, even front of my home.

P&S Pearl foams well and is only around 30 bucks a gallon.

Chemical Guys Honeydew and Adams Shampoo (Blue) are also two that I have used with good results but they're 40-60 a gallon.

I have this one and it works well with just regular Meguiar's car wash soap. The foam does not stay on thick, so thank OP for the tip on changing the cannon nozzle! I will try it.

Am I the only one confused by pressure washer fittings? Each manufacturer has two different bayonet sizes, threaded, quickconnects of different sizes, M18, M22, 1/4", etc. This looks like a 1/4" quickconnect, is this a good size to buy accessories for?

Make sure your pressure washer can provide enough pressure for this to work. This cannon needs a minimum 2 GPM to work.

I don't have experience with that foam cannon, but reading up on it, it should at least work enough to make a foam (consistency I wouldn't know though). It doesn't look to be just a low pressure soap dispenser.

It could be the ratio of soap to water (use the soap recommended ratio and not what your foam cannon states), or the soap you're using. There are some car wash soaps that you can only use as bucket/pressure washer nozzle (via soap tank), others that are primarily foam cannon, and some that can be used as both.

You could try changing up the soap ratio first if you haven't tried that. Then maybe change the soap you're using. Or you could try the 1.1mm orifice mod I mentioned in the OP. I know your pressure washer says it's 2GPM, but that's generally the potential max and not necessarily the usable.

Thanks for the post OP, if only we're allowed to use a soap in our own driveway when cleaning the car I would grab this one in a heartbeat.

Generally, all pressure washer gun tips use a universal 1/4" quick connect. Unless you're using an obscure pressure washer with a gun that's proprietary and doesn't work with anything else. It would snap on fine, just like any turbo, 0, 15, 25, 40 degree nozzle tip.

M22 - 14 (or 15...), 3/8", etc are if you're wanting to add quick connects to your hoses/machine.

This foam cannon will fit the tip of any standard gas/electric pressure washer gun.

Wait... what? There exists a place where a homeowner is limited on how he chooses to wash his car on his own property?

This one 🤣!
Dispose of the wastewater into the sanitary sewer. By using a pail, washcloth and only a small amount of water, and then wiping the car dry, the wastewater can be contained in the bucket and disposed of into the sanitary sewer through a laundry sink or toilet. From there it will go to a City wastewater treatment plant.
What person is going to wash their car like this? Filling a pail with a small amount of water and wiping your car down with a cloth. Then wring the dirty water into the pail and pour it in your sink?
