Nearly the same price on Amazon as well. Gilmour Foam Master II is what you want.

I've covered this a few times, but I can't find the thread, so here goes again

"Foam" is bubbles, you need 3 components to make bubbles:

1) Soap
2) Water
3) Air

A garden chemical sprayer only works with 2 of those 3 elements... its designed to take a liquid chemical, dilute it with water, and dispense using the pressure from the water feed. Without the properly METERED introduction of air, it won't make foam.

A foam gun does introduce air at a correctly metered amount to generate the foam. If you use a garden chemical sprayer you'll end up with soapy water, not foam.

Nice! I have a mixer I bought at west marine for $10, it works well but I might step up to true foam.
