Default Garden Hose Nozzle with Soap Dispenser?

Anyone know of any quality nozzles with a built in soap dispenser? I was thinking about this one:

http://topoftheline.com/supsudhosnoz.html

But I don't think it has an adjustable stream. I used to have this one:

It worked really well for rinsing the undercarriage to get the salt and grime off, but it was made of cheap plastic. I dropped it once and that was the end of that.

After browsing autopia, it seems that those built in soap dispenser deals are garbage. The best solution is to get a commercial foam gun. They are able to produce a thick clinging foam for proper "leave on soaking" treatments and offer proper dilution.

Talked to Sal to see how well they work with Zaino and he loves them joints. This is the one I just ordered:

I'll post a review once done.

I use one...they work really well at loosening the dirt away from the paint prior to washing with a mitt.

Do you need a compressor/power washer with that thing? Should you use any type of home powerwasher on your Z at all?

No, you don't need any additional pressure for a foam gun. All you're trying to do is have the soap remain on the paint longer than if you used the two bucket method. (soap+water in one and clean water in the other) This allows the soap to attach itself to the dirt and lift it away from the paint before you go over it with the mitt, thus reducing the chance of marring the paint surface when you wash. Ever notice how a good portion of your soap/suds ends up on the ground under the car while you're washing?

I would not use a home powerwasher on automotive paint. Do you really want to blast dirt into your paint?

A seach for foam gun at autopia.org will provide additional info and opinions.

You might alway want to check out detailcity.com. I know Steve over there just got some foam guns in and was thinking of doing a group buy. Might be a good chance to pick one up if you were really interested in one.

It would be really easy to do a group buy on these.
