    I made it but I have an issue, for sometime foam comes out and then air I don’t have constant foam what must be wrong

    Well sometimes it happens when the mesh is clogged or the hole on the pipe is wide/or clogged.
    Best way to figure out what is wrong is take off the sryinge, if u use the pump it should come out water/soup+air, always mixed.
    In the sryinge clean the mesh, if it's dirt. Usually the problems are: the mesh got soaked or dirt. U may have to add more mesh to the sryinge or remove some.
    If you interfere too much in the water flow, I mean resistance, it won't produce constant foam.
