Im sorry to create another Fog thread, but i have been searching for days on the site and going through the threads and i just cant decide what to get and what kind of liquid, i dont need anything crazy, but i dont want anything weak and im wasting my money.
I seen the monoprice one 1200-Watt Fog Machine, i see some good reviews and some bad. What is the best liquid to use? I seen bog fog, and one called froggys i believe. Im not concerned about ground fog, im looking to spend under $100 on fog machine (if possible) but i dont have a problem spending more if needed. And how much liquid to i need to buy? If someone can just post what they use and the liquid they use, i just want to purchase something that is working for someone already so i dont regret what i buy. I hope someone can help me. Thank you very much! Im doing a boiler room in my front yard (nightmare on elm street) and im going to be freddy, so i want to make sure its good. thank you
below is a pic of my front yard to get an idea of what im working with as far as size of area i need fogged.

I recently got the Monoprice unit with a 15% off code. I'd had a similar priced cheap unit for a few years I'd bought at a Halloween store and it died Halloween night last year (grrr). I reluctantly bought the Monoprice unit, but I have to say that thing is pretty stout. Seems well built.

I put some Froggy juice in it the other night (don't recall which version) and it spews fog way better than I think my other units did combined. I'll try to shoot a video of it this weekend, but for sure it's output is pretty good.

On the other hand, there is no timer remote for it. So I'll likely try to figure out the 3 pin wiring and try to use one of my existing timers from my old unit. A nice feature though is it comes with a wireless remote, but I don't have the ability to stand around and micro manage it.

For like under $60 after tax and shipping, you can't go wrong with the Monoprice unit...even if you need a backup.
The code I had used was hot15. Not sure if it's still good though.

Regarding the juice usage, I know the year before WHEN my fogger worked, I had to fill the container like 3 times. For sure a gallon of juice will get you through the night IMO. I had mine going off with the timer and even with it cycling every minute or so, I still had juice left over.

This is another plus for the Monoprice unit in that it's tank is much bigger. So you'll probably only have to refill once. I also noticed it had a nice brass fitting on the pickup tube for the screen. My other units had plastic attachments
