If your jet is more like a spray then this might be difficult. Also, transient works best and the NITA solver works good for speeding up time steps. Hopefully, that gets you started.

You will set it either as a mass flow inlet boundary or a velocity boundary--you will then specify the mass flow (or velocity) of each phase (water and air) on the boundary (set flow of air = 0 if that is the case).
