Quick Disconnect Issue
I have heard Mike tell everyone to be careful with the quick disconnect to make sure it is fully connected. Well yesterday after using this over a year I did not get the *&# thing connected correctly and the tank shot out and hit my car. The estimate to fix the door is just over $400 which is better than I expected. They cannot take the car till the 15th so I get a reminder of my mistake for the next week. This will NEVER happen again as I removed the quick disconnect and will live with just a little inconvenience of not having it. Since I do use a quick disconnect on the hose I can switch to another sprayer to rinse the car w/o any delay. I would only recommend this product if you remove the quick disconnect.

I was hesitant due to the price but I'm always looking for ways to cut down on my wash time, soap usage, water usage, etc. So, I picked this up on sale. Initial feeling is great quality--no leaks at the canister to handle connection, the canister plastic is heavy duty and all the brass fittings seem well machined. I used the free Blackfire sample for my first time, and on the max foam setting, it definitely throws a lot of foam and the foam doesn't just drain off the car--it stays there. That said, I don't know why they'd add complexity to the the device in order to add multiple reduced foam settings. Recommendation per instructions is max foam setting and 2oz of shampoo. I used 1oz on my GX and I did about half the car before just water was coming out--so on a large SUV, 2oz should be good. On a midsize car, 1oz should do it (tried it again on my M3). With the foam gun, i'm saving having a separate bucket with water to wash the sponge, as the foam seems to be pulling the dirt away from the surface--and, I don't have to scrub as hard. I think this is a winner.
ProsGood quality device Saves time, soap and water
ConsCanister should have liquid volume graduations on the side to measure water addition. I'd rather the canister be clear plastic. Still need to use my regular sprayer for more efficient water usage--but just put everything on quick disconnects and it's good to go.

I like it
I've only used it three times so far, but it does make washing easier. Lots of fun to use as well. I just wish that the hose nozzle was easier to control when the soap tank is taken off.
ProsMakes washing easier Fun to use Able to get soap in wheel wells.
ConsNo option of water spray for rinsing. It just comes as a jet of water.

It is what it is....
It is and it worked exactly as described. Works best with recommended soap.
ProsSimple, easy, better than just wetting down your vehicle.

I have used the foam gun 4 times now and have enjoyed it more each time as I've gotten my new routine down. It lays down tons of suds. Each of the three brands of car shampoo have worked great. This thing works great and I can't imagine spending more for other guns.
ProsTons of foam. Easy to use. Wash car much faster than traditional method.

This is a must have !
Let me guess, you have gone years wanting this specific item? It was at your finger tips but you just could justify the money. Do It! What are you waiting for? This thing throws loads of foam , very low water pressure at the house too. This is a much needed pre wash soak , use the right product in conjunction with good wash technique and your golden.
ProsSo happy I finally have one in my bag. Quick connects / screen filter at the inlet ,sweet.

ProsQuick release on the spray nozzle is the best makes for easy rinsing

Puts down a nice layer of suds. The quart size is much easier to handle compared to the larger reservoir.

Wish I had bought this long ago. Saves time and water over the 2-bucket method.
ProsQuick, efficient way to get foam on your car.
ConsAwkward to set it down with the hose attached - maybe needs a stand or a swivel on the hose fitting?

Best purchase yet
I used this for the first time this weekend on 2 Honda CR-Vs and a Toyota Camry. Used it both with the included soap sample and Griot's car wash. Approximately one ounce of soap was more than enough to finish one car. Wet the car down, follow the instructions for filling the soap and apply to the car. Then used a Griot's boars hair brush with rinse in clean water. Then use the rest of the soap in the reservoir to coat the car again and run until the water becomes clear. Rinse.
ProsVery easy to use. Uses very little soap Negates the need for 2 bucket regime for me.

Took washing to a whole new level
I'm new to home detailing but not new to car washing. This foam gun made it so easy and cut the time in half. Very easy and precise to use.
December 11, 2015
Glad I purchased this foam gun.
I used 2 oz. of soap/wax and 8 oz. of water with meter set at 2 oz. / gal. (Well shaken.) I was able to do two laps around my car covering it with plenty of suds and I still had 1/4 of solution left in the bottle. Very happy with the amount of foam on my car. I still used the two bucket method and the results were 10/10. Very happy with every purchase I've made from Autogeek. Thanks!
ProsFoam gun does what I need it to do. Easy to use.
ConsNone that I can think of.
June 12, 2015
Works as advertised
bought this for my new car, trying to keep as much from touching it during wash process as possible. This does the trick, nice thick layer of suds. Well made.

I was thinking about getting a foam cannon that attaches to the pressure cleaner. Decided I didn't like the idea of dragging the thing out of the shed and setting it up just to put foam on the car. Figured I give the foam gun a shot. It works great with the DP extreme foam.

ProsWorks as advertised... Produces lots of foam!!!!
ConsIt would be nice if there were oz. markings on the side of the reservoir to tell you how much liquid you are pouring in.

Much better than using a soapy mitt
This foam gun makes all the difference when washing your car. It has adjustments to allow for more or less soap solution depending on your preference for suds. I have an olive tree near my parking space and it leaves little yellow spots on my car on a daily basis. Normally id have to put in some elbow grease to get the spots out, but using the foam gun, the foam seems to sit on the car for much longer and just pulls the dirt off of the car. When your done washing the car you can disable the soap solution to rinse the car, or the hose quickly detaches from the gun just like an air compressor tool.
November 19, 2014
Works as advertised. Tried it out day after it came and loved it. Will use every time now in fact my son uses it as well. I used my wash and wax soap and foamed perfectly for me.

way better then a bucket
after washing cars for years with a bucket and not wanting to use a power washer on my pride and joys I found this. And let me tell you it put a big smile on my face. its super easy to use and works just like i wanted. So if you are like me and don't want to power wash your car this is the best foaming gun out as far as I can tell.
Proseasy to use and with the adjustments you can put down just as much suds as you want
Conson the high setting you are going to use a lot of soap but still worth it.

Works like a charm
August 29, 2014
using this with a hose rather than a pressure washer. works well to get soap on the vehicle prior to rubbing with the soaped wash mitt. dirt is presoaked like at a car wash, so big bonus. doesn't foam well with pressure washer, but not the fault of the product. nice sharp spray to rinse vehicle when you take the black foamer off. I would recommend only to those obsessed with keeping there paint as scratch free as possible as you have to use a good amount of soap in the container.
August 27, 2014
Good purchase works as advertised
Used the foamer shortly after receiving. Used 2 oz. of of car shampoo per instructions and had plenty of suds to complete my Focus ST. Will be trying other shampoos to judge foaminess. Easy to use, read instructions in autogeek and those that came with foamer. If you're thinking about a foamer this one works great!
ProsEasy to use, lots of suds
May 17, 2014
This is great
This really lays down a thick, rich layer of foam that lubricates the paint surface. I can clean my cars without adding any artifacts. To borrow a phrase "First do ok harm".
ProsRich long lasting foam Easy to use

im a at home detailer. picked this up after using a friends. works great and allows for nice even coverage. allows the soap to really do its job vs. the old way of scrubbing a car with a mit. highly recommend it!
Proseasy to use works great even coverage i recommend this size over the bigger size

SUDS SUDS! I LOVE SUDS!
This quickly became one of my favorite toys. It's really easy to use, and helps lubricate the paint and break up most of the dirt. More importantly, it's fun to shoot suds.

Great Foam gun!
Although this gun requires lots of soap, any soap i have tried 5 different 'high quality' shampoos, I really like the adjustments along with the ability to 'customize' the amount of foam you want. Be ready to use a lot of shampoo/soap. Only complaint is that the brass connectors rust up after short period of time and I have done away with the supplied nozzle and use a nice home depot splitter. overall a great gun. and a good buy. if you have low water pressure be prepared to address that first because you will be less than satisfied with it otherwise. enjoy.
January 6, 2013
This foam gun is awesome! I can clean my whole truck in 15 minutes now because of this product! It really is a great investment for anyone who washes their car/truck weekly like I do. And it really dose clean the car. I was a little skeptical that it wouldn't get all of the salt/debris off my truck but it really does and you don't have to scrub at all. Great product! I highly recommend it!
February 19, 2012
I can foam my entire car (BMW 335is coupe) with one filling of the one quart reservoir. The foam gun doesn't reduce the time needed to wash the car but squirting the foam is very satisfying. However, it reduces the potential for swirling the paint. Some detailers foam the car twice, flushing of the first coating of foam and following up by using a mitt on the second foaming. If you want to follow this procedure, or if you have a vehicle larger than my car, get the gun with the double-sized jar.
November 20, 2011
Works great. Wish I would have gotten the half-gallon one instead of the quart. Personally, I prefer a two bucket system but for heavy soil I presoak with the foamaster!
November 14, 2011
Excellent product and Well built
I dint use it all the time but when I do it's always a treat. It works very well and produces excellent foam. A great tool to have around for when you want to foam a large area whether it be for your decontamination method or otherwise.

Works great, easy to use and adjust dilution ratio.

I decided to skip this product on my first AutoGeek order, and instead decided that the 2-bucket wash was good enough. I didn't like how that went -- the foam just doesn't last (I used Wolfgang Auto Bathe). So last week I placed my second order and picked up this foam gun and DP Xtreme car wash. Wow! What a difference! This is an excellent combination, and highly recommended. NOTE: My water source is a well, so rocks, instead of water come out of my faucet (55grains of hardness). I have a water softener, so I use softened water which, of course, suds / foams up great. If you aren't getting good foam/suds out of this product, then your WATER SOURCE is the problem (water is too hard).

Works ALMOST exactly as advertised. The foam was not shaving-cream-thick even when using the supplied sample car wash, but it certainly does the job. Strongly recommend that you spray your car down quickly with foam, then use the gun in one hand and a wash mitt in the other to ensure proper lubrication while washing. Also, a bucket of clean water to rinse your mitt is still highly recommended even with the excellent lubrication provided by the foam. Nice job, Autogeek.
November 4, 2010
The Foammaster gun works very well especially with the DP Extreme auto shampoo. I have wanted a foam gun for some time now and this one really does a great job.
August 10, 2010
not exactly as advertised
I got this today and tried it out according to the directions on autogeek.net. 2 oz of DP extreme foam formula and 8 oz of water. Well, I got almost all the way around the vehicle before I ran out. Within seconds %80 percent of the suds had slid off the vehicle. Hard to see this thing being better than a good 2 bucket wash.
May 30, 2010
this thing is awesome
i used to have this gun i loved it i made it into a foam cannon with a few parts from home depot but it got stolen when i left it out one night now looking to buy a replacement with four cars this thing is great time saver i used at a car wash for the boy scouts now every time they want me to bring it...lol
