Not much fun in an attic in the middle of summer, give them some natural light and the buds will enjoy the free UV A+B. agree with your neighbor and blame the guy on the other side of you, suck you friend on his views on canna, and consider persuading him to change his views
LMAO i basicly did blame the others pointing out how much new stuff they have bought lol and said ill have to have a smell in my attic.. But im defo para now :O

I'm having similar problems, I've upgraded to a new, Phresh filter, but it still stinks on the exhaust. I'm exhausting into a chimney but I still worry about it seeping through into the neighbours or coming out the chimney then settling to ground level and making a smell outdoors.

I got hold of a friend's dehumidifier but the increase in heat is waaaay too much. Does anyone have experience of using those dehumidifying gel crystal tubs in a grow room?

im venting out of a roof vent thats alls i have no chimney exept a flu but dont fancy cutting into that.. What i did do today tho was made a paste out of washing powder and clothes conditioner and painted it into any cracks on the wall to next door and put a wicks air freshner facing the wall that automaticly goes off every 9 mins will see how that goes while i sort some coin for another carbon filter

From my experience, ona gel will just about mask the smell of a handful of buds left out on a table, but it will do absolute diddly squat for a full grow. Unless you were to build a wall out of them surrounding the grow.

Just a question...where does your intake draw from?

Check this out...dual scrubbers


You can also refill your existing scrubber with new carbon. Simple enough to do if you know how to use a drill.

Yeh roughly change your carbon filter every 6 months that will sort your problem

If you've bought even a worthwhile filter, there should be absolutely no need to change it every six months. Heck, i bought the cheapest one i could find, and grew one of the smellier strains there is, and for 3 years that filter did it's job wonderfully.

Some do last long deepening on the extractor fan, heat, humidity etc... Loads of variables I'd rather change it then had a leak
