Foam Master Proper Ratio

Hey guys,

I know it tells you the ratio on the bottle etc, but for some reason I cant seem to get it to foam properly since I am a bit unsure the best way to use it. (Which position the lever should be in, how much soap to water, etc)

I am using dodo juice car wash and have no idea how many drops to put to the water, etc in order to get a nice foam. Any ideas?

Also if there is a better foaming car wash out there id be happy for suggestions.

Thanks

^ I use my soap (Meguiar's Gold Class) full strength in the bottle and select dial position "A" (1:128 ratio) on the Foamaster.

How much soap and water do you put in the bottle?

I don't dilute the soap... That's what the dilution/mixing dial is for.

Yup.

Start with the lowest setting ("A") and see if you're satisfied with the foam output... If not go to the next dial setting... Just realize you'll be using up the soap at a faster clip as you move up the settings...
