    Btw, the charcoal, I got it from amazon. I got the 3 bags pack, it's listed under aquarium supply. Before using it, make sure you shake it first outside your house. It has a lot of carbon dust in each bag, you dont want that flying around your grow closet.

    What I do is, I cycle the bags, like every 6 months or so, I replaced it with a fresh bag. To reactivate the used bag, I let it sit under the sun for a few hrs and it will be ready to go again.

    Same process to reactivate the foam filter.

    The other added benefit of using activated carbon, it also somewhat control humidity. Excess moisture in the air is absorb by activated carbon, until humidity equilibrium is reach. If the air is too dry, activated carbon will release the trap moisture back to the environment.

    Something I will never understand is when someone slams someone else for being helpful by freely offering information.

    Sometimes I think trolls are paid to do what they do.

    Then I think who would profit from something like that.

    Usually, I go back to life; other times, I smoke and go back to life.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah I think it really does depend on the individual setting - each will be a bit different, especially on the small end of things (and I'm currently looking at a cabinet dimensioned at 50x100x90cm ;) )!
    So it's really good to know what different possibilities are working for others.

    this is serious business, you can go to jail. By the time you notice your filter failing it can be too late. Filters are the most important part of any grow, even in legal states. Once your neighbors know whats up then the cats out of the bag, you cant put it back in. Ive always used big filters and centrifugal fans and they dont even work perfect all the time. Alot of humidity can make them ineffective and some like Ipower come with weak carbon.

    Remember to keep the old carbon, throw it in a tub with some compost and shit and let it break down and go into the carbon. After a few weeks work it into your garden

    Just remember to charge it with lots of N before you add it to the backyard garden-soil,
    if you decide to recycle that material. It can make a huge N-sink in your soil otherwise.
