    Any recommendations on the right fog machine to always be ready to emit fog when you want it to. All of the cheapies I have, tend to go into a heat cycle (even though they haven't been emitting fog) just when I want to use them. If I want for when a sensor is trigger, what do you recommend?

    My old Rosco could do this. I miss it, both of them.
    They were $350.oo, each 15? years ago.

    I modded all my cheapo foggers so that they would work even if the heater is on. I can spray as much fog as I want whenever I want (until it cools down too much and liquid fog juice starts squirting out )

    I'll do a writeup on how to do the mod on a couple different foggers sometime.

    Of course my first recommendation would be to get a good fogger (like the Rosco), but sometimes you have to work with what you've got.

    They must have their reasons why they don't want cool fog let loose upon the world?
    Modify their product and those immature fumes may degrade brain cells and then we see if Jeckle & Hyde was truth or merely fiction?

    Larry might chime in on this one as he sells Le Maitre and these are awesome units. You need a fogger with the highest wattage rating rated for continious fogging. We use the VEI V-950 and have had great success with them. These are about 299.99 but will outlast any cheap party fogger. We sell a vortex nozzle capable of accelerating the fog quickly and dispersing it over a large area. These mount to the front of a fogger and require an air compressor to operate. Either way, all foggers have to heat up and have thermostats with re-heat times.

    Mmm... Mildew...

    I agree that good foggers are worth it, especially if you need a ton of fog or run them many hours. Get good foggers folks!

    What is annoying though is when you only need 2 seconds of fog so you use El Cheapo, but you need it right on cue and your cheap fogger decides that it's too busy heating up to give you fog when you are ready for it and the whole effect is blown. That's when I get cranky and start modding things. At $30 I'm not too worried about the warranty.

    So let me explain the scenario a little better. For instance, with my electric chair....I want fog (just a little) everytime I activate it, it will simulate smoke from the victim. I also have a barrel pop up that I want alot of fog everytime it is activated. What I am reading tells me I just need a better fogger and not the walmart specials.
