    My foam gun is a joke - very little soap, only sprays 3 feet, and the soap doesn't stay on the truck. I have an electric pressure washer so I think it is time to get a foam cannon. I want one that will last. Any suggestions? The Amazon one for $18 appears to not last - many people in their reviews said it falls apart after a few uses. The same is reported for the Chemical Guys one. What has worked for you? Thanks!

    Have you tried cleaning the internals?

    I have the MTM cannon with a crappy electric pressure washer and it works well

    It is brand new and uses a water hose. I will check though to see if it is clogged somehow.

    I was just about to pull the trigger on the Chemical Guys big mouth cannon since they're having their black Friday in April sale but they are out of stock. I've held these in my hands and they are far from junk. Very heavy duty brass construction. People who complain about them likely don't maintain them at all...

    Will they not let you order it anyway? If it looks like a decent unit, I would buy it.

    I have had gold luck with the chemical guys one, if you find it on sale it's not too bad. I think it was $60 bucks but also came with a gallon of soap.

    Looks like they won't even allow you to put it in the cart. I'll give them a shout tomorrow to see if I can get in on the deal. If not, they are available on Amazon for retail price of $89.99 free shipping with prime. 25% off is much more appealing obviously.

    In the foam cannon, replace the standard orifice (typically 1.25mm) with the smaller (1.1mm) one if using an electric PW.....it will give you better foam

    Least expensive place I've found them is Detailed Image...they work out to about 12.00 shipped...I just got mine installed (super easy)...and it does make a difference
