Leaf blower and POOLING?

I have heard of this method called "pooling" where you take a very light stream out of a hose, spray from top to bottom to rid of any beading.

Then afterwords taking a leaf blower and getting the rest of the water off and MAYBE having to use a soft microfiber towel to rid of the rest.

So I bought a leafblower for about 70 bucks, not the strongest but its cordless (I live in an apartment so It has to be cordless) and can get to i believe 120 mph.

Now, here is my problem, I go to a local gas station which has pressure wash wands.... I CAN'T use the pooling method with these....

Is there any other way I can do a pooling method or something?

There was a guy over in the uk that used Flower water cans. Never tried it though, I suppose you can always fill up some gallon jugs and poor over it, cut a hole in the handle to let the air escape so you get a smooth flow. Something I suppose we need to experiment with???

I just might have to be the guinea pig here. Maybe someone has tried it otherwise... I might have to take the dive :P
