so now i dont know what im doing stock wise. i NEED FOAM. so hoping i can find online as sellers that sell genuine stuff.
Is that Grant Purdie? We have over 250 different products, so it is impossible for every franchisee to stock everything. You do find some regional differences. In fact we make a special foam which we only sell in Scotland called Durafoam. If you definitely want Ultramousse then Grant might order you a 25 in if you ask him.

are expensive snow foams worth it ?yes and no ,have got about 8 different snow foams on the go at the moment ranging from budget to top dollar foams ! yes when you buy them and they are good but no when you buy them and they are rip off copies of other companies and very poor ,i bought all the snow foams i thought was good at waxstock and have to so say so far i am impressed with all of them except one .
was just as expensive as the others but was clear to see when using it that it was a copy of another companies and very poor in comparison giving rubbish foam and very little cleaning power as well,the reason i bought it was cause i thought i was buying someone elses product as the name was the same spelt differently and packaging was almost the same as well

with a snow foam you have to accept that they are not a magic formula and they will not clean the car with a "no touch" effect regardless off what some of them claim.

They will all or at least the good ones do a very good job depending on your OCD but imo you will still need to wash the car with your buckets etc.

What about using a citrus based product through a foam gun. Say valet pro? Does that work better than a snow foam?

I'd does a decent job when I've tried it but think a pre-wash is better through a pump sprayer IMO. I feel SF cleans better as my rinse bucket is a lot 'cleaner' after a SF compared to a pre-wash
