Dry ice can create energetic bubbling water and large flowing fog upon being combined with hot tap water. For example, with about five pounds of dry ice in five or so gallons of hot water, those first few minutes will result in a large production of fog. During the next ten minutes, the fog will decrease as the water cools down, and the volume of dry ice decreases. The fog will become wispier as the water becomes cooler. The dry ice stops making fog when the water gets colder than 50° Fahrenheit but the sublimation and bubbling process will continue.
Pour five to ten pounds of dry ice into four to eight gallons of hot water every 15 minutes. This will result in significant fog depending on water temperature and dry ice size. Hotter water creates more fog. Very hot water adds its own steam to the cloud of vapors. The fog will flow downhill and into the direction of any air movement if steam is not present. A small fan can assist with “steering” the direction. Smaller pieces of dry ice with the greater surface area will result in a larger volume of fog and cool down the water much more quickly.
