HOW TO USE FOAM GUNS
CONTRIBUTED by Eric Novotny of Windows on Washington
Here is what you do. When you are done for the day, leave the foam can (as long as it has some remaining product in it) attached. DO NOT RUN GUN CLEANER THROUGH THE GUN!!! All that does is cook the seals right out of the gun. If you are using the gun on a fairly regular basis, it will be fine and if you leave a can attached, it will not cure inside the barrel or valving of the gun.
If you are using the tapered tips, allow the foam to cure inside the tapered tip when you are done for the day. It forms the airseal at the tip and prevents any air from entering the gun barrel and curing the foam inside the barrel. When the next install comes around, you just snap off the old tip and install a new tapered tip and you are good to go.
Tapered tips are great and we buy them by the bulk in addition to the extension straws (far less of those are used as compared to the tapered tips). Since my guys have been doing the gun storage as listed above, we are getting months out of each gun whereas they were getting far less by trying to clean and store them emptied out.

If you are on the fence about a pro gun versus big box consumer one-use cans - don't be.
The big box cans are an absolute mess and very unpredictable foaming patterns. I used this gun for the 1st time and it was incredibly easy. Try a few test strips while adjusting the nozzle on the back and then you'll have a consistent foam bead size.
Research Ive done here and elsewhere says I can keep the foam on the gun and not have to clean it out. I have yet to validate that but that's the plan.
With the Dow-branded gun going for like $40-$50 I don't know why you would need to spend that. This gun had everything I needed.
