Pre-wash without snow foam

At my job it turns out we have a washing space with a older homemade pressure washer (work for a large pump manufacturer) and have no idea of the fitting of the handle. So my thought was to skip my standard snow foam routine when washing there, but what would you recommend using? My plan is to use a pump sprayer.

Will my KK blizzard work through a pump sprayer? Or do I need something stronger like Powermaxed TRF or should I go down a totally different road?

Get some BH Autofoam and use that via pump sprayer.

What neil said, BH autofoam through pump sprayer can be more easily/accurately diluted, works just as well if not better than through a foam lance (depends who you ask) and will last you longer so be more economical
Alternatively you could use something such as a dedicated spray pre wash for example AF citrus power i think it's called or some APC

Autofoam works really well through a pump sprayer.

From the testing I done on kkds blizzard extreme it didnt perform that well as a snow foam but used at the advertised 10% PIR via a pump sprayer it performed pretty well. I used 200ml to 1800ml water and it helped shift a good amount of dirt.

Normal Blizzard isnt as strong as Extreme but it should still break down some road grime as a pre wash.
