Smile Foam Cannons



Hi Guys:

I have been researching "foam cannons" on google and You Tube. Prices for "all brass" types vary from $160US down to $16US (many people swear that the $16 ones are just as good with the right soap). Amazon.com has them for $16US but Amazon.ca charges us Canadians much more, as usual. Does anyone know where to get one from a car parts store in Toronto area for reasonable price? Home Depot and CDN Tire have cheap plastic ones for $50+. I'm thinking Ebay.ca as a last resort. I searched under FAQ and only 1 post was under this search word.
This my second post so forgive me if I didn't submit it correctly.

Check Auto Obsessed or Chemical Guys. They not the cheapest ones, but both have good products.

These are the best options available. I have the cheaper $100 one but it's great.

This guy ships or allows pickup in the GTA.


For only $30, I suppose this amazon one might be worth trying.

Thanks doogee. I think I'll go with the $30 job. (but out of curiosity I'll check the specs on my pressure washer. It is said that 2.0 GPM is minimum recommended). Worst case, I can use the cannon to spread the foam/soap, instead of having to do it manually with a bucket. I have all kinds of aches and pains.

Foam Cannons

Hi Michel61

You're correct. By posting a question one often gets good answers from other members.

Regarding an update, I have not purchased one yet, but I have seen them on Kijiji for about $40 (the ones with brass fittings). So far, I've been hand washing so it's not an immediate priority, but will consider one of those in future.

Amazon.ca had MATCC for $33.99 which i've seen recommended, and kijiji had Lance Core for $40. I'll do more research when i'm purchasing one, but they look like reasonable quality with brass fittings. However, there are some users that say that the $100 types are better. I don't care that much because I figure that I'll primarily use it to spread soap over the car, in lieu of a bucket and sponge. Good luck on your search.
