    Make Your Own Fog Juice

    Cold fog juice will only make your fog machine take longer to recharge. The juice goes from the tank, through a pump and then through a heating element that turns the concoction into smoke. The only way to make a low lying fog is to cool the fog itself. I made a very cheap low lying fogger by running a 3 foot piece of 1.5" steel pipe through a styrofoam cooler (about two inches from the bottom) and filling the cooler with ice. Then, just point the nozzle of the fogger through the pipe and as the fog passes through, it cools off and sinks. This is very inefficient, but works well. This year I'm going to pump cold water into a radiator and send the smoke through that to cool it off. It should be far more effective, I'll let you know.
