pumping foam in cinder block walls


There are businesses here in Phoenix that will fill your cinder block walls with foam to increase the insulation value. It is expensive. Are there companies that rent the equipment and sell the foam to do this yourself? Thank You.

Not a great DIY job.
I highly doubt there's anyone going to be renting out that type of equipment.

Definitely not a DIY job to get it done right.

The DIY formulations of the product don't even exist out there nor am I sure it make a real difference or is it worth the investment.

I have seen it done and also seen it create unintended issues.
