Are there any rules or regulations with using foam guns/cannons in California?

Dont get caught LOL

I dont think there are any laws forbidding the use of one and the only thing I have been able to find is being penalized for "excessive water use". Now what they consider excessive is what Im having a hard time getting a straight answer on.

Being a So Cal resident, I mainly stick with Ecosmart for a majority of my washes but if its really dirty then I take my buckets and materials to a local wash and pay to use the water there.

Lol for sure that's what I was thinking and found. I just wish I could actually go and wash my car at one of those places without being told I can't use a bucket.

a pressure washer can reduce water usage, depending on its gpm.

Since we are in a drought here in So Cal, there are some areas that will fine you for washing your cars in the drive way and water run off. I would check with your city hall for answers. I just go to the local coin operated self service car wash and do my washing there and detail the rest in my garage. I haven't been told that I can't use my buckets yet, even thought there are signs posted up..lol
