Hey All; this will be my 14th year for yard haunts and I have tried almost every configuration for getting that fog to go low.. Last year I did the Trash Can chiller just with ICE and was blown away how well it worked. So I would like to share. I have 2 Visual Effect V-950 Super foggers running into two trash can chillers.

Here is a PDF link on a quicky step by step what I did to build mine.

Jimmersg: Did you make a drain for yours? Just curious as to where the water goes when the ice starts to melt? Is there enough room on the bottom for it to pool? Thanks!

Drainage

Kenpilot; funny my Uncle just ask the same question today after he finished building his. I have not had any issues with drainage yet. I have a slightly slopped front yard and have tubes running the fog were I want it. The Trash can itself is not in the line of TOT trails so no puddles
I Live in North Carolina so it really does not get cold on Halloween and for some reason you compact 50-60lbs of ice together in a trash can and it does not melt as much as you would think.. Shoot I leave the trash cans out until the next morning and dump them out; then when I am all done cleaning up the day after like it never happened all people see that come by and wonder where everything went is two large mounds of ICE :)

LOL thats too funny! I wasnt sure if I should add a small water drain at the bottom of the Trash can but if it doesnt melt too fast and pool on the bottom I guess you really dont need one! :) Thanks!
