can snow foam go bad?

I have some valet pro snow foam (-PH)
been using it for the best part of a year now - bought a couple of 5L.

last week went to use it and the lance only sprayed out a watery solution.
I then used a brand new lance and exactly the same.
used another brand and beautiful foam over the car.

does this stuff go bad over time?

How is it being stored? I have vp ph neutral and it’s outside in a garden store, but because of the cold weather it goes milky and lumpy, but all I do is fill a bucket with hot water and put the whole container of foam in it to warm it up, it then thins and goes clear again.

And mix it using hot water in the foam bottle to make sure there’s no lumps inside that may block the output on the lance

I imagine the greater possibility to be a clogged or corroded lance. Did you clean it last time you used it? Was it stored in a dry place?

Some lances now come with mixed metals; aluminium and brass, for example. (Talking about you - Sam's Detailing.) In a damp environment, like an unheated garage, trouble is only a winter away - despite the alumnium being anodised - dissimilar metals in contact with moisture will set up a battery type action and corrode.
