    Obviously, I'll recommend our foam lance kit (currently on offer and includes a free storage bag!): PB Foam Lance Kit | PB Car Care & Detailing Products

    Comes with Meguiar's Hyper Wash, the only snow foam we recommend.

    Its dilution rate of 400:1 (water/product)means that per litre it costs roughly a tenth of the price other snow foams do (check the dilution ratios and work it out from there: I have previously posted on here the price per litre maths).

    The cheaper foams are usually a false economy as their dilution tends to be 50:1 or sometimes as low as 15:1.

    Yeah I think its good. Only used it twice before weather turned ****. It looks very similar to the one you found. I know someone will correct me but they more or less do the same job. It does have a brass fitment so it should last, which is important for what they cost.

    Make sure you get one with a dial on top to strengthen/weaken the mix.
