    Re: How Do You Fill The Wash Bucket?

    I'm going to have to bring out the air compressor. This poll is getting too close for comfort... go water first guys goooo!!!!

    I'll fill my bucket with water, then add the soap, then I'll blast the bucket with compressed air. I'll have more bubbles than you soap first guys can dream of.

    I might end up soaked with soapy water, but it will be at the appropriate concentration

    Yea I used both ways before and I like filling with water first, If you put soap first and then blast with water, you get a bucket full of suds and an overly concentrated mix

    Re: How Do You Fill The Wash Bucket?

    I sort of combine both ways. I fill the bucket up about 3/4 of the way and follow that with a strong stream of water. I get about 4 gallons of solution with a nice top layer of foam. This way, after I dip my mit into the solutiion, I get some suds on the way up.

    Sort of left out a part. I fill the bukcet 3/4 of the way, add the soap, mix it, and then use a string jet.

    I fill my buckets first with 3 gallons of water (Soap and Rinse buckets), then add car soap. Then, stir the water and soap solution with my hand (make sure its clean). Finally, I would drop my Grit Guards down the buckets.
