Im guessing im better off spending the extra $40 and buying something better quality. How much fog fluid do you purchase for your night of halloween? This is my first fog machine im purchasing believe it or not, and want to cover all the bases,For the last 3 years I've used the Chauvet 1100 (now the 1101; about $99) and froggys swamp juice. It's the only fog fluid I've run through my machine. After Halloween I follow the cleaning instructions from the Froggy's website to the letter and my fogger has run like a champ each year I pull it out.
