Default Corrosion in Fog Machines

I just picked up my first heater type fog
machine at Hamfest. Got a great deal on it

It was new unopened, but had been sitting
for some time and there is corrosion in the
pump and strainer. I was able to get it
working, so am happy to report that I can
now take beamshot req's.

So is corrosion is a problem in these
things? If so, what do you guys do about
it? Nothing comes up in a search.

Believe it or not a flush now and again with a mix of 50/50 distilled water and clear vinegar will keep it clean and help prevent corrosion whilst in storage

Okay, thanks, I will try that. They are
advertising a flushing solution, so the
manufacturer even admits that it is a
problem. At $7 a pint, I think I will
stick to the distilled water, though.

Got friends in the disco business who have been using foggers for years. They have tried all the proprietary chemical solutions but stick to the home made method

The same solution works particularly well on spammers too.

Just thought I'd 2nd that suggestion. Works great, especially before long term storage.

Vinegar has so many great uses lol!!
