Power Maxed and BH are good to use with a foam pump sprayer.
iK and Gloria make some great snow foam sprayers!

Isn't there easier money to be made just buying trade sizes of product and decanting into fancy bottles with fancy labels ? (remembering of course to change the product in some small way to make it "exclusively hand-crafted in limited numbers")

You could of course sell it as part of an "optimised cleansing process" alongside your idea of the " nano foam paint nourishing spray spa applicator "

Just started using Koch Chemie GS diluted 1:15 in a Kwazar Orion 6 litre pump sprayer. Admittedly my car is never that dirty but it done the job better than snow foam and didn’t seem to weaken the LSP.

Have a read of this regards dilution through a pump sprayer and lance/pressure washer.

I have used them both for many years and they are both epic as pre-sprays, but i think AutoFoam definately has a slight edge in terms of just making the dirt slide off without any touching.

They actually mix together very well, if you want to create a mega-pre-spray for quick cleaning daily drivers .... removes all the crud like nothing else if you use AutoFoam with a splash of added Surfex.

Other than that, to answer the origonal thread question, my order of pump-sprayer greatness is:

1) Autofoam

2) Powermax TFR joint second with Surfex

3) PowerMax Snow Foam via pump sprayer ( it seems to be just a foamy version of their TFR and i have 5L to use up ... )

4) Any household APC .... and my favourite for all car jobs is Stardrops Classic - a truly epic cleaning product that wont stain trim and plastics.
this is what i do, 4.8 litres of water, 200ml of BH AF and 50ml of BH Surfex HD.

its a greaty mix

Another vote for BH AF, I have used VPCW which was also good but I find the BH slightly better.
