It probably could actually. The regulator they give you can be swapped out and they do sell the box solo. The regulator is what supplies the pressure, not the box. Plus not too many use atomizer...

The dry ice sounds interesting yet expensive. One would have to go out and get it first. Depending on tank size, it could be a nice wait.

Draining the tank down is one option. Less water to get...
