    At least when you get a 3 disk fogger, you wont have to get 3 adapters ?

    I bought a fogger shown by seedjar, and was inspired by the following YouTube video to make a contraption which I affectionately call my "Fog Box."



    I used a Tupperware container, some tubes, duct tape and hot-glue to seal it. It fills up my 29 gallon terrarium in a matter of minutes, and thats with only a 3" under-powered fan. Perhaps if you took that idea and upped the power on the uptake fan, you will find it meets your requirements.

    Lee: I have none of them myself, but I have set a few fountains up with them. Based on the amount of fog they put out, I think the 1-disc model is sufficient unless you have a very large enclosure or want the look of filling your entire chamber with thick white fog. I imagine that five of these running at the same time would look like a chemistry experiment gone wrong. I would buy the smaller models and just stock up on replacement discs.
    CJ: That's a really nice build in that video! I was terrified when they filled it with gas though - in the living room, with no blast shield or anything. Pretty ballsy if you ask me... o.O

    Was I the only one hoping he was going to light the gasoline vapor stream?

    In another video, he does. He uses a wire-mesh screen to block the flame from going back and blowing up the gas. Its very interesting to watch the flame, for whatever reason, not go through the mesh.

    The one that broke was a Sunpentown SU2000.....lasted nine months. Taking a better look at it I think there may be some amount of mineral buildup on the resonator....so I am gonna try to get this off and see if it works again.



    My mom decided to pick up a sunbeam ultrasonic last night for me and so far it works even better than the old one.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Have you tried soaking the disc with white vinegar to remove any mineral deposits? (Or if the disc isn't removeable, just put vinegar in instead of water and let it stand.) I clean my cheapo Target off-brand humidifier after every few months of use.
