I bought the exact same sprayer, used it once, then sold it on.

It created foam with the right product but it needs continuous pumping to maintain pressure in the vessel. Spent more time pumping it than I did using it for what I'd bought it for.

JWW would be better suited to the Kwazar as it'll give you the foam if that's what you're after.

If you want a pressure/pump sprayer that doesn't need to be continually pumped, go for the Hozelock ones, eg: 5ltr spayer as 3ltr liquid and 2ltrs of air pressure in the vessel, giving you a good continuous sprayer that only needs pumping a couple of times to do a whole car.

You can use both through it, jw&w will be a bit foamier but you need arms like the hulk to keep pressure in these things

I bought a 1L pre mixed RTU spray bottle from ECP to give this a whirl. I used it for the first time yesterday and I'm amazed at the cleaning ability. It was applied onto a dry car (protected with AG HD Wax + BSD) and then left to dwell for 4-5 minutes followed by a PW rinse. This was followed by a 2BM wash, the water in the rinse bucket was a lot cleaner than it has been when using various snow foams as pre wash through a lance.

Considering the mess snow foam leaves on the drive way and the cost effectiveness of this when bought in a 5L quantity, I can't see myself using the snow foam lance again.

Can't comment much on LSP degradation but the previous coats of BSD were still beading tightly after the PW rinse.

I used this at the weekend. Mixed it up around 8:1 in a sprayer bottle and sprayed all over my brother in laws filthy black Zafira, including wheels at the weekend.

The car was almost clean after letting it dwell for 5 minutes, and pressure washing it off. Even the wheels needed a basic clean - better than my Bilberry When Cleaner!

Looks like a superb purchase and will probably mean that a load of the time I don't even need to foam/wash my car.

In saying that, 5 litres of Auto Finesse Avalanche arrived today (another great Car Parts 4 Less / Euro Car Parts buy)!

Have you used AF Citrus pre wash? If so, how does it compare?

I have both pal.

I use AF Citrus during the summer for baked on bugs etc and it works a treat for me. I then apply snow foam to the whole car and PW off once it's dwelled for 5mins or so.

I switch to the PM TFR when the weather starts to worsen as I found in the warmer months, by the time I've applied the TFR as a prewash to the whole car, it's starting to dry out.

I've now switched back to snow foam for the warmer months as it doesn't dry out.

Both are great products but they work well for me as my paint is always carrying a decent wax/coating/LSP to help with my wash routine.
