Fog machines can enhance the look of any dance floor and show off your lights in a whole new way. But like any machine, foggers need some maintenance to work properly. And caring for your fogger properly will not only prolong your equipment, but your investment as well.

Fog machines contain heaters and pumps which are use to make fog and a tank which holds fog fluid. After an initial heat-up period, the high-pressure pump will pull the fluid from the tank and push it into the heater where it vaporizes into fog. The fog is then pushed out of its front nozzle. Any unused fog fluid should always be covered to avoid contamination by dust, minerals and other particles, as these can create problems.

Read on for some fast-n-easy tips to care for your fogger.
