Okay, with a heavy water based system I would start with the the fluid adjustment knob all the way out, meaning the most fluid is being sprayed, the air adjustment knob adjusted to the max and see what happens. If you are not thinning your product and using a #4 tip this should be fine. If it is running all over the place back it off the fluid adjustment. The air atomizes the finish and if it is too high you can get some orange peel. Orange peel is a problem with the faster drying solvent based finishes but not so much with slower drying water based finishes. You won't know how bad the orange peel is with the water based finish until it has set up for quite awhile. This is why you will need to experiment.
