    Go to the store and buy new foggers, quick!!!! The ones you have now are toast!!!

    Next year, buy a quality fogging unit ahead of time, and only use Froggy's Fog Juice in it, PERIOD!!!! Anything else will continually give you the same results!!!

    And never use tap water to clean it, distilled only! Good luck.

    GhostTown is right I used to buy cheap foggers and replace them every year!! 3 years ago I bought a V935. It cost me some, but I have never had one problem with it, and boy does it blow some fog!!! You can fog the whole damn block if you wanted too I also use froggy's fog juice.

    I also use Froggys.. you can get it for $30 shipped off of amazon, which is a bit much, but you can still overnight it and have it by Saturday. I don't know any other site where you might have that option still. Also agree, VEI 960 fog machine so far worked 3 years, no problems..I actually just leave the fog juice in it when I store it, so far no problems. It fired up again this year with plenty of fog.

    My ADJ Fog Storm 1200HD comes in tomorrow.. looking forward to seeing the output on that and compare it to the 960.

    Does your fog machine produce any fog? Does it come out the sides or other places? If this is the case then the output is clogged. I have had this problems with machines and I just ran them for a while and eventually they unclogged. Other times I opened them up and cleaned all the parts that required a good washing.

    Most of the time it is the smaller store bought models that produce the most problems. If you buy a higher wattage model then the output hole is usually bigger, not to mention the fog produced and speed helps keep it working in great condidtion year after year.

    I did have one this year that had a thermal meltdown. Held it by the cord and it looked like a containment unit from Ghostbusters. The unit was very hot, after it cooled I opened it up and it was molten silver lava that spilled everywhere. Beyond repair. That will require a new machine

    please let everyone know your thoughts about the comparison between the 2 machines
