The Foamer Simpson 2 Gallon Pump Up Foamer (FSPU002) has a manual construction that only cost a fraction of the price of other power foamers on the market. It's an inexpensive product that produces an excellent foam quality like shaving cream. This foamer is ideal for use with InVade Bio Foam and other foaming products. The product features a double hose technology that produces foam from the applicator tip and not from the tank. It can also produce a wetter or drier foam with its adjustable air mix. The exterior is a light weight yet durable plastic construction, making it easy to carry on any location. The Foamer Simpson unit also comes with an 18" wand and a fan spray nozzle which is readily available if it needs to be replaced.
Here is a list of the replacement parts for the Foamer Simpson:
1. Before use, unlock and lift the pump handle and put three drops of oil from the enclosed bottle directly into the pump opening where the pump handle locks into place. Repeat approximately weekly if using the foamer regularly to prolong the life of the pump. If it becomes difficult to pump, it likely needs oil.
2. For best quality foam, do not fill the foamer to more than 1 gallon. Since air is required to make the foam as well as for pressurizing the foamer, the extra headspace will help.
3. Fill the foamer to the desired level with water, then add the InVade Bio Foam (1 oz per quart or 4 oz per gallon).
4. Swirl the foamer to mix, but do NOT shake. If a large amount of foam develops in the head space, it can possibly block the air intake, resulting in poor quality foam. This should only happen if the foamer is shaken vigorously, and not from normal use. If this happens, pour out the liquid and rinse out the foam and refill.
5. While InVade Bio Foam is not corrosive, it is a good idea to clean the foamer regularly with water to extend its life.
6. If using other products in the foamer, make sure they are compatible with plastic parts.
7. Always de-pressurize the foamer using the valve on the side after use and prior to removing the pump. Beware of spray.
8. The foam consistency can be adjusted by turning the needle valve where the hose connects to the tank. Turning it clockwise (tightening) will use less air, for wetter foam. Turning it counter clockwise (loosening) will result in more air for drier foam.
9. To use the extension wand, remove the short nozzle and screw in the extension wand. Make sure that the piece of white looking material remains in the nozzle or extension wand as this is critical for foaming.
For several years we fought the battle against fruit flies... every summer sucked!
This stuff is amazing. Spray your drains with Invade Bio Foam using the Foamer Simpson and your summer is good again.
So much better than fogging or spraying toxins everywhere.
This foamer makes plenty of thick foam with Invade Bio Foam, which is what I've purchased this unit for. The new, single hose model does sputter. I've found it works best if the pressure level is kept high, and the tank kept around the same level as the wand tip. I also only fill the unit with one or two quarts of solution at a time, leaving lots of room for pressurized air. This allows the unit to go quite awhile between rounds of pumping, while keeping the pressure level adequate for making foam.
