Foam Lance Settings - bit of a sanity check

So I had this bought for me for my birthday and wondered if anyone else uses this lance?



What's in there is the remainder of BH Autofoam which I know isn't the best for producing foam but as a sanity check if the adjuster is set to - that introduces less water in to the mix this producing more foam? I.e. More foam used?

Could anyone clear this up for me and advise? Thanks in advance guys and gals.

Looks a little like mine, what i do if its any help is turn the dial to 0 then back 1/4 of a turn and that seems to produce some pretty good foam.
When you have finished turn it all the way up to 11 and wash through with the plain water, just remember to go back to 0 then up a 1/4 of a turn when you start again.
that should give you a good starting point but might need tweeking dependant on water pressure etc.

Ok thanks Pittsy, so just to be clear then by 0 you mean all the way in clockwise then back of a 1/4 turn? And thanks for the cleaning advice buddy, hadn't thought about that!

Clock wise toward the '-' means more foam and anticlockwise towards the '+' means more water, have a play with it to see what suits you best
