How To Use
Simply pour the cleaning solution into the easy-to-fill mouth of the tank. Next, connect the tank to the sprayer and the nozzle to the hose. Finish by attaching the sprayer to the nozzle. To choose how much solution you want to release, adjust the dial setting. 'A' releases the lowest concentration of cleaning solution while 'E' releases the highest.

Not enough suds/runny suds?:
Keep in mind that a foam gun simply doesn't have the power to make suds stick to the paint like glue. If you're looking to snow foam your car, your best bet is to invest in a gas powered pressure washer and the MTM foam cannon.
If you're simply looking for a more bubbly experience with less milky consistency, experiment with cheap car soaps and keep the foam gun dial on E. I recommend Meguiar's Deep Crystal soap. Pour it into the jug without dilution and have fun! Meguiar's Gold Class doesn't foam up for me nearly as much, plus it's about twice the price as Deep Crystal. One 64oz bottle lasts me about 6-7 washes in the foam gun.
Another option I've recently tried is Chemical Guys Honeydew Snow Foam soap, which produces the same amount of suds when diluted. I'd imagine using it straight will be even better, but it's too expensive to use up in a few washes in my opinion. When diluted, my 16oz bottle has lasted 5 washes so far, with 70% remaining.
Nozzle keeps shooting off?:
I've shot my poor car twice with this gun. The nozzle has a tendency to fly off like a rocket at random, and can potentially harm the paint. But there's a very easy fix for this: Gorilla Glue. Simply spray a little water onto the end of the nozzle and inside the orange housing, put a good dab of Gorilla Glue onto each side of the nozzle and re-attach it to the housing. Then, firmly secure it for about 24 hours. I did this a year ago and haven't shot my car since.
If you've been having these issues with your foam gun, I hope my little tips could help you have a better time with yours!
I am more than impressed. I bought some good quality chemical guys soap, fill the sprayer half-way with soap and fired her up!
I use the "D" setting and get huge amount of foam all over the truck...top...bottom...and wheels. Then i scrub-a-dub-dub with a 10" quad brush.
The bottle unhooks from the sprayer with no effort. Then we rinse. BAM! We're done and enjoying an adult beverage.
Big truck done in an hour. Used to take me 2+ hours with buckets.
Overall, it works as advertised, however I'm knocking off a couple stars due to the fact that I had to modify it for piece of mind. Gilmour needs to redesign the attachment point for the foam nozzle. Either use a more robust clip system or just do away with the clip and make it so the nozzle screws in.
I would definitely purchase again! I rate this a perfect 5/5!! Thank you for reading and rating my review!
So I decided to give this one a try. It works great IF you follow a couple of steps. first, you need to see what setting works for your soap. Second you need to dilute with water some thicker soaps. I used the cheap meguairs stuff in my garage and it was thick like honey, at first try it did not do well even on the E setting. so I added about 2 ounces of water to the soap and swirled it around to make it mix this was basically a 3 parts soap to 1 part water mix at this point. suddenly it started shooting a LOT of suds. I was able to back down to the C setting and was getting awesome results.
do I get the sticky snow soap? nope. but I am washing cars, not setting up a photo shoot. This cut my washing time down to 1/2 of what I had before. effortless to set up, no real cleanup, no real teardown. now I can spend time waxing and detailing.
Remember you may have to dilute your soap if it's too thick, and you have to change the settings to get what you want. you have the setting too high if you cant get the soap off the car easily when rinsing.

A couple of tips:
1. As you will need to disconnect this sprayer to switch back to your regular hose nozzle, consider getting a garden hose quick connector with a quick shut off valve. I found this really helped save time in not having to walk back to turn off the water tap on the wall each time.
2. Hose down your car with water first before applying foam to wash away and loosen the dirt and dust. This will allow the foam to help loosen the remaining dirt and dust that remains on your car's surface. If you wash with a mitt, consider getting a grit guard to put in your rinse bucket as it really does help remove the dirt from the mitt and help minimize scratching the clear coat.
I only use this for washing cars.
-Allows solution to soak onto car
-Keeps soap clean vs 2 bucket method + grit guard
-Works with any car wash
-Has quick disconnect on spinner for easy transition from soap to rinse
-Longevity of the hand sprayer portion to be determined over a longer period (but can easily be replaced)
-I have only used it with pure car wash
-I haven't used it with other soaps / car+wax combo soaps
-I always used it on the heaviest soap setting
