NEE INPUT! I realized I need to make a fog chiller for my cemetery. I've never ran a fog machine or built a chiller but what I need is a recommendation as to where to place it, and where to pipe it to to get the most use of it. Here is a plan view of my cemetery. Im thinking in the back middle and piping it in both directions with fingers ran down the rows maybe?. Any advice would be great and if you have a link to a chiller that works well please post. Thanks!

Go on YouTube there are plenty of videos on how to make one, they are all pretty simple

I agree with annamarykahn.. find out which way the wind is going and place the pipe to work with it. I wouldn't get carried away with too much piping as you won't get perfect distribution before the fog dissipates. Before you make a chiller, I'd recommend experimenting by just loading up the pipe with ice.

Great advice by everyone! And if you use the corrugated pipe you can easily get some dry ice or standard ice in the tube. I've done this before and it works great to cool the fog, especially in those cases where you have a longer run. A fog chiller is also great, but since you're already planning on running lots of pipe to distribute the fog definitely try it with the ice in the tubes first. Good luck!

You might try frozen bottled water instead of loose ice, especially if you're going to chill a length of drain pipe.
Longer lasting, tidier, and simpler to coax into position down the pipe.
Also small chill packs like medical hot/cold packs work great.

You'll have better fog distribution by running a header line across the rear of the cemetery with lines, as you say, coming off of the header between the graves. We use this configuration in Septic Fields.
