i've seen some that have a built in soap/detergent mixer...

whats the general recommendation for psi and capacities?

I just bought a cheapo electric pressure washer from lowes. I'm just using it for car washes so 1800 psi is enough for me. Then again, from my experience, electric pressure washers have a high fail rate.

Also, I recommend the MTM Foam Lance/gun. I got mine at amazon for $50 shipped. I don't know why other places charge ~$80+shipping for the same thing.

I've heard with higher PSI the more foam you get with the lance. Mine is good enough with Chemical Guys soaps (such as MaxiSuds)
