How To Select a Fitting for the Foam Cannon HP

The Foam Cannon HP is designed to connect to a pressure washer. There are literally hundreds of different models of pressure washers on the market, and to utilize a Foam Cannon HP with your particular pressure washer, you need to know which fitting to get.

The Foam Cannon HP attaches to the trigger/gun assemble for your pressure washer in the exact same way that your wand currently does. So you will just need to remove the wand and look at the fitting that you currently have and match it up to one of the fittings that we offer below.

It's a common misconception that X brand pressure washer uses the same X brand fitting for the wand (the piece that the Foam Cannon HP replaces). That's not true of most pressure washers. Example: A Craftsman pressure washer may not necessarily utilize a Craftsman fitting. So just because you have X brand pressure washer and don't see the same corresponding X brand name for a fitting on the site, doesn't necessarily mean that the fittings available are not compatible with your pressure washer.
