Questions and Answers from the Field
by Professor Twanger, PHD

Hello, I'm sure you have seen me around. My name is Professor Twanger, Pond Harmony Designer.

Please let me enhance your education within our water gardening industry.
The topic for today is "straw foam".

Question: Every time I use an aerosol can, the foam dispenses when I put the straw on the trigger?
Answer: Always put the straw on the trigger BEFORE you screw the trigger on the valve. As you put pressure on the valve trying to secure the straw; you just started making a mess with a whipped cream can.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: That black foam is messy, is there anything that will take it off my hands?
Answer: First of all, to my knowledge all cans say USE GLOVES. But if you do get some on your skin use acetone. There are numerous brand names for foam cleaner upwards of $18 a quart (acetone) Go to your local hardware store and pick up a quart of acetone for about $3.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: What's the difference between a can that has metric versus an ounce measurement?
Answer: If you are currently using a can that is metric it is an import. Some companies market their product as a 16 oz can but if you do the math, you are only getting 15 ounces?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: Do all cans on the market have to be used upside down?
Answer: Not if you use ROCKIN FOAM. ROCKIN FOAM can dispense an ANY ANGLE.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: I always have to buy at least two of the standard 12 ounce size can, why isn't there a larger can available?
Answer: ROCKIN FOAM was designed as a true 20 oz can for this very reason.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: I don't like cans because if you do have some product left in the can, you can't use it at a later date?
Answer: ROCKIN FOAM is a reusable can so you can get maximum yield. Just seal the straw on the reserve nub and you can use the can up to 2 to 3 week later for another job.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: Why is it important to have product that inhibits ultra violet light?
Answer: For cosmetic and stability reasons. The color black retards foam degradation ONLY if the foam remains black. ROCKIN FOAM uses CARBON, NOT DYE. A dyed product will fade to a yellow brown color over time.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: Won't dyed foam eventually discolor with the algae and water?
Answer: Yes, BUT, the sun will still effect the degradation of the foam and you will still have a yellowish brown color where the foam does not come into contact with water.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: Cans suck! Why doesn't everyone use a cartridge gun?
Answer: Until the formulation of the 20 oz ROCKIN FOAM, the gun had an application. ROCKIN FOAM is reusable. If you compare the price of ROCKIN FOAM VS. the cost of the gun, cost of the cartridge AND the cost of that super duper $18 quart (acetone) cleaner and your time to clean your gun; ROCKIN FOAM is an obvious choice.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: I can get that yellow stuff at the big box super cheap. Why would I want to pay for black foam? When I can just paint the yellow foam black?
Answer: You must have a lot of free time on your hands and VERY cheap labor!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: I've heard that "triple expanding foam is the best"
Answer: You heard WRONG. Use ROCKIN FOAM as it is "MINIMAL EXPANDING". If you want to pay for more propellant and do a lot of trimming; triple expanding is the way to go. Minimal expanding has better density for secure rock placement.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: Why don't the triggers on the cans work?
Answer: They are too small and you have to use your thump on the valve and you have no control. ROCKIN FOAM has a LONG trigger and you can actually control how fast the foam expels from the can.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: Can you compete with my price?
Answer: ROCKIN FOAM doesn't have to compete with imports. If your product is substantially under the market price of ROCKIN FOAM, something must have been sacrificed. It is a long way from Europe and freight is not free. ROCKIN FOAM is formulated and manufactured in the U.S.A.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: Why do some cans expel rapidly or sometimes not at all?
Answer: Most often the product you are using has a short life span and you have exceeded it. Use ROCKIN FOAM, as it has a TWO YEAR self life from date of manufacture.
