            Just bought the lance and snowfoam for my jetwash. TBH im not that impressed with it!! I dont think it makes that much difference. A good hose down with the jetwash and then a normal wash is as good as anything(in my humble opinion). The snowfoam is not a substitute for the normal wash. Spend your £50 on something else!

                      I think pressure washer with less than 110 bar pressure are not powerful enough. Im happy to be corrected by anyone though!

                        Its not supposed to be?
                        Are you presuming that a snowfoam is to wash the car because its not.....Its a presoak to loosen up dirt and eat into solid like dry mud etc so when you do spray it off it takes away anything that a wash mitt may swallow up and drag across the paintwork which is the no.1 reason its invented to prevent swirling...

                        You have jumped the gun with your post due to lack of knowledge/information.

                        If you want more of a wash than soak then i would recommend using citrus foam.

                          I dont lack knowledge/information, i did a lot of research before I bought the lance and snowfoam, you were in fact one of the people I consulted! I was aware that it was not a substitute for the normal wash and was mearly pointing this out to the poster who may have been unaware of this. I'm not convinced, yet, that its worth the expense for the benefits it provides. I dont think it lifted or loosened that much more dirt than the jetwash alone did. Thats all!

                              Jay i would hazard a guess that Rachel supplies them although i could be wrong...It is a tenner dearer though but they have some good products on there...

                              I have used a foam lance for about 18 months now and in winter to me personally the benefits are fantastic especially when its really road salty to loosen everything....
