The outstanding foaming performance of the PA Foam Lance is legendary in detailing circles and here we have packaged it up in a great value kit along with Auto Finesse Avalanche, which is our new foaming agent of choice, and a handy Atomiza Dispensing Pump. In essence, a foam lance is any device that attaches to a pressure washer and mixes a shampoo-based product with the flow of water to produce thick clinging foam. The idea behind applying thick clinging foam to the car before washing is simple and the benefits are obvious. If you apply a generous coating of suds to dirty surfaces and allow them to cling in situ for many minutes at a time, the cleaning agents have longer to work and therefore dissolve and suspend a lot more dirt and grime. By the time the foam is eventually rinsed off, much of the dirt and grime is simply washed away, leaving relatively clean surfaces behind ready for a two bucket wash by hand. Clearly, the major benefit here is that the bulk of dirt removal is done before a wash mitt is placed on the car, which greatly reduces the risk of inflicting marring and fine scratches during the hand-washing process. Most pressure washer manufacturers produce foam lance attachments for their units, but none produce foam that is anywhere near as thick or effective as that produced by the PA Foam Lance; it really has to be seen to be believed!
This kit comprises...
1 x PA Foam Lance
1 x Auto Finesse Avalanche (5 L)
1 x Atomiza Dispensing Pump
...plus one of the fitting options shown in the panel below...
...and offers a 5% saving compared to buying the contents separately.
The PA Foam Lance is supplied pre-assembled and ready for use, but as a safety precaution we recommend that a quick inspection is undertaken before each use to ensure that all parts are nipped up tightly enough to withstand pressurised flow from the pressure washer. To use, unscrew the bottle and pour in a suitably diluted snow foam solution (refer to the instructions provided for the specific type of snow foam you are using). Then screw the bottle back on to the injector head and shake the whole unit gently to mix the solution before finally attaching it to your pressure washer (double checking that the connection is fully locked in; don’t overlook this step, as the consequences don’t bear thinking about). Finally, aim the lance at the car and squeeze the trigger, adjusting the top dial until you achieve the desired foam thickness (clockwise for thick foam, anti-clockwise for thinner foam). After use, remove, empty and replace the bottle, and then, with it still attached to your pressure washer, run water through it for a minute or so (ideally with the top dial turned all the way anti-clockwise). This will flush out the internal wire mesh filter and prevent any foam residue from drying within it (which has the potential to disrupt foaming performance in the long run).
Due to the complexity of this kit we are unable to provide a meaningful summary specification. Please see the product pages linked in the ‘Description’ tab for individual product specifications.
