    do you have to use a pressure washer when you are using a foam cannon or can you just use a hose and a regular spray nozzle ?

    You have two different versions:

    Foam cannon - must use a pressure washer and gives you a large amount of suds, hint the name "foam".

    Foam gun: similar to a foam cannon but you use a standard hose and no pressure washer is required. These do not have as much suds as a foam cannon, mainly because of the amount of water used. With a foam cannon you can adjust the amount of suds to water ratio to get you the perfect texture. In my opinion, I think foam guns are not worth it. Yes they can help with lubricity, but a foam cannon is much better (and enjoyable) in my opinion.

    Foam guns work great just need to get the right soap, never used a foam cannon so I can't comment on them.
