But I would agree with Mr Singh, go to a locaL garden centre and get a weed sprayer, or if you insist on spending money go for a fencing panel sprayer.

we have them at work and depending on the mixture ratio they do foam to an extent... and i didn't read that you were not a UK resident.

I have one of these.-

Not really powerful enough to jet wash a car but perfectly adequate for foaming it.

Mr singh no problem I am a ex resident lol So at least I knew what bq was lol. I really appreciate the feed back from you guys, I don't want to power wash it. That is out of question with this car lol. Did on the old car and it took of a part of the clear coat. :(


I was skeptical about the fact that it would actually produce foam but apparently it will :)

Thanks
