I wouldn't try it unless the machine is expendable, Not sure if there is really a difference since for low lying it generally requires use of a cooling system to keep the fog low. My guess is its a more potent solution than regular water based.
While this may be true for the $60 Omnisistem Skull Fogger f-80hb, for more expensive machines most will say use only fluid recommended by the manufacturer.
Great idea but the lines in an office water cooler just aren't big enough for any large volume of fog. It would work great for a really small effect. Me and a friend used an old freezer with two holes cut in it with a 3" copper pipe winding through it (ended up being about 4' in length inside the cooler with the bends) made very cold fog that sat less than an inch above the grass in 50*F temperature.Makes one wonder if you could repurpose an office water cooler to perform a similar task, running fog through the lines instead of water.
-Fog quickly passing through may not have time to cool adequately.
-System may overheat from lack of water in the lines and frequent compressor on/off cycles.
-Ambient heat from the unit (negligible).
The low-lying stuff is junky. It will gunk up the pump if you don't clean it after each use.I wouldn't try it unless the machine is expendable, Not sure if there is really a difference since for low lying it generally requires use of a cooling system to keep the fog low.

But again I wouldn't try it unless you don't need the machine to work again.
Search "Molecular Fog Juice"ok. is there any kind of fluid that is close to low-lying that i can use?
Yes. While a 5 gallon bucket works well, it's best to use a large trash can. (10-50 gallons) The larger the better!Is there a way to cool it somehow?
I don't want to contradict StewTech here, but Molecular, low-lying fog juice, or similar products are all Glycol-based an can probably be used in this given machine as most glycol blends are close enough in both boiling and flash points. There are no inherent dangers to the users, the talent or the equipment in experimenting with a low-lying fog product; it will likely yield similar results as a normal fog fluid would, aside from producing a "greyer" and a much faster dissipating fog.
