Fog machines are some of the best ways to decorate for a holiday (especially Halloween). However, they can be confusing to set up, and if used incorrectly they can be broken very easily. Following are a few tips on how to set up your fog machine correctly.

Step 1: Filling the Fog Tank
Unscrew the lid of the fog tank, and fill the tank up approximately halfway with fog fluid. I don't recommend filling the tank all the way for main reasons:
-You could spill some fluid and damage your machine.
-You most likely will not use all of the fluid at once,and letting it sit can cause spills and damage the fog machine.
-It will make the inside of your machine dirtier, resulting in possible clogs and the need of more cleaning liquid later.
After adding fluid to the tank, screw the cap back on the machine.
Step 2: Plug in the Remote Sensor
Plug the remote sensor into the back of the machine. Without it the fog machine will not work. Make sure it is plugged in snugly.
Step 3: Plug in and Warmup
Plug the machine into the wall. Next, wait around five minutes for the machines' nozzle to warm up, and the remote sensors' light to turn on. The machine will not work until it is warmed up.
Step 4: Use the Machine
Your fog machine should now be able to make fog. Have fun making your house creepy!
