Mark's DIY Fog Chiller
- Fog machine
- Small plastic trash can
- Dryer hose duct
- Water-proof duct/gorilla tape
- Utility knife
- Cut two 4 ½-inch holes in the bottom of the trash can. One on one side, the other, about 2 inches higher, on the opposite side.
- Stretch your dryer hose duct out all the way.
- Once it’s completely expanded, we’re going to feed that duct through the lower hole in the trash can. Feed out about a foot or two.
- Coil the rest of it inside of the trash can (continue to coil until you get to the very end).
- Take that piece and pull it through the other hole that was cut.
- Time to get your fog machine out. Attach that to the hose we just pushed through (the input hose. The one that’s 2-inches off the ground).
- Using tape, make a seal between the hose and the fog machine.
Optional component:• In order to make it chilled, need to add ice. Dry ice or a couple of bags of regular ice will work! • Standard cardboard box, completely sealed up, one side, cut a small slot along the bottom. Using the knife cut a 4 ½ inch hole on one end. That’ll attach to our output duct. Using tape to make that seal nice and airtight. • Then, to keep the chiller hidden at night, you can spray paint it all black, as we do here.
Tips:• Because the fog is now colder than the surrounding air, it will stay low to the ground. Walking through it almost looks like your walking on water! • You can also get a longer chord if you need one, in case you want to hide the garbage can somewhere farther away. • You’re going to want to get a water-based fogger, as they work best. • This time of year, these fog machines are everywhere and they’re cheaper than you think! • This entire project costs about $80 and it really does put the perfect finishing touch on our haunted front yard, for all the neighbors to see!
