MTM Hydro Foam Cannon Filter #36.0226
MTM Hydro's Stainless Steel Foam Cannon Filter is a replaceable maintenance item that fits all MTM Foam Cannons. This product is a woven Italian Stainless mesh that operates as an agitator when the chemical and pressurized stream hits it. To the naked eye, it looks similar to the cheap Chinese versions but once it is disassembled, there is a distinct pattern developed by our Italian engineers that ensures a thicker clinging foam.
From the models we have tested, this Filter will fit in competing foam cannons in addition to MTM Hydro's. Don't expect the same results though, the MTM Hydro Stainless orifice, and sequential conical chambers of our Cannons have equal importance to the foam output.
As an agitator, this item will get clogged over time and if you use waxes, the sticky compounds are notorious for causing a faster failure rate. If you suspect a clog, and you remove the agitator, there will be no noticeable issue as the sticky chemical compounds are driven deep into the middle which creates additional back-pressure and inhibits foam creation.
FAQ: "How do I know my filter/agitator should be replaced?"
ANSWER #1: If it used to foam well and it doesn't now, 99% of the time it is because the filter is clogged.
ANSWER #2: Some foam is coming out but the stream is very weak and you notice foam coming out other places due to back pressure.
