A-O Pro Tip #2 – Hiding FallsFoam in Water Features
Our second A-O Pro Tip of the series comes from Ryan Winter, owner of Alpine Custom Hardscapes in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He shows us a great tip when using Atlantic FallsFoam.
Watch the A-O Pro Tip here!
Ryan explains a simple but great tip for hiding the FallsFoam in your waterfall. He tells us to let the foam get a little tacky after spraying it down, then spread and pat down dirt over top of the foam to get the dirt to stick to the foam. When the waterfall is turned on, the water will wash away the excess dirt and leave a natural look of dirt in the waterfall stream.
*Reminder* Be careful while using FallsFoam – ALWAYS use eye protection and WEAR GLOVES! Foam Gun Cleaner LF1325 will dissolve foam only while foam is still wet. Once dry, FallsFoam is VERY difficult to remove from skin and clothes! Also, be sure to clean your Foam Gun with Foam Gun Cleaner when you remove the empty foam can. This will prevent the foam from drying inside the gun which would render it unusable.
