  1. Hi guys, i purchased a really small 40cmx40cmx120cm tent to do a single plant lst/supercrop in to make space of the little area along with one of those new hlg quantum boards. I'm having major issues with my exhaust fan set up and just want help with it as i'm at my whits end trying to get it to run quitely. I went with a black orchid hydbrid-flo 100 4 inch which is cheap and cheerful if it wasn't so noisy for the room. Its really loud and unbareable (this is on its low setting, it has an option for only either low or high) for a bed room and i'm pretty sure that any speed controller i get will just be too expensive for this budget mini grow as well as i've read online that fans with variable speeds should never be plugged into one of those cheap light dimmer plugs that are commonly sold on ebay as hydro light dimmers. I dont know what to do and i need this set up to be really quite for obvious reasons, i want to only be able to lightly hear it in the room and not at all once outside the room. I will of course keep the in line fan outside of the tent along with the large carbon filter. I've been reading on forums all day trying to figure this stuff out, and have just signed up on here to try sort it out. I did however come across this which is a cheap chinese 4 inch fan but at least it has full control over fan speeds which should help i guess. This tent is tiny though, do you think i could get away with two 120mm pc fans as an exhaust instead? To help further, the filter that i'm using is a carbomax 50 (a bit overkill i guess). Thanks guys, any help would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Evening ladies and Gents Hope all is good ,, I am having some issues and am not sure if its human error or faulty equipment.. most likely human error haha. Rite so,, I have a 150mm systemair EC fan,, this works at full power fine when there is no controller attached to it. However when I remove the probe on the side and add in the G.A.S multi phase digital fan controller I get nothing out of the fan at all! Is there any wiring inside the fan itself that needs changed to allow use with the controller? As far as I can see it should be plug and play??? Any help would be greatly appreciated ,, cheers in advance
  3. Planning on running intake&exhaust looking for a twin fan controller to help me control temps. Can anyone make a suggestion? & if you can remember the price paid it would be helpful since I'm trying to compare price. Thanks in advance:) & HAPPY NEW YEAR!
  4. Hi everyone got an 8inch fan and filter from rhino so has the plug wired to it. Need a fan controller that wont hum i tried the smscom but hum was terrible. Could someone recommend one that i can plug my fab into rather than wire. Thanks in advance
  5. Afternoon all, right I’m after some help with a controller a friend gave me it’s a old unit but I can’t seem to figure it out for the life of me. I’m not sure if it matters which fan goes into which socket but I’ve plugged my carbon extraction into the bottom and my intake into the right hand side socket, they are not marked with anything and the tent has got negative pressure. Problem is both fans both seem to be running on very minimum even when the lights are on. I’ve set the dial to 26/27c and my external thermometer is reading 32 when lights come on but the fans do not kick onto full power ,which then the temps start to climb. I’ve had to just plug the fans directly into the wall and have them on full power constantly which is not ideal for when lights go off. Does anyone have experience with these as local shop said he’s not seen this unit and wants me to buy a new one. Thanks in advance.
  6. Hullo, First timer here, 1.2x1.2x2m Mars tent with 600w Solis-Tek digi ballast, 6" exhaust, pulling through a f^k off carbon filter. Hand watered coco with Canna nutes. At the moment I'm just getting my bearings and while my Type K thermocouple thingamy has been invaluable during the hot weather (barely managing to keep below 30c during hottest part of day, but the girls are seeming to love it =) ). However I'm thinking I might need to get a handle on the moisture levels in the air as they really start to party hard. So would appreciate a product that will allow me to put sensors where they will do most good, and more importantly allow me to take readings without having to wake them up (ie have the display outside). Not above building some sort of home brew "fabracobbled", GitHub sourced thing, but prob more sensible to start with a working unit that will give me a baseline to be able to move forward from. Don't want IoT stuff, no RGB, simply something that works, every time, without alarms or "features" that won't get used, think Nokia rather than iPhone =) Finally I would like something that will manage to survive at least a couple of seasons, but not having me have to sell the kids. So if you have come across such a thing, please point me in the right direction. Cheers, PS Also I wondered if there was any benefits to other things to bring the moisture down rather than a full on de-humidifier ? (N.B. NOT affiliate links) Bags of magic stuff that pull in moisture (along the same lines, Or if it gets really bad, bite the bullet and get.. Big thanks in advance B
  7. Hi guys, I could really do with your help on this as I' m rattling my brains trying to think of the best solution. I will be growing away from home at a different house. I visit the house every day on the way home from work for an hour or more to feed, water, trim ect. The main problem I' m having, which is one of the most important aspects is maintaining the environment tempretures due to calling once a day. I just want to make it clear now that I wouldn't be able to start calling more than once per day, every so often I call twice but for various reason I can only call once. I could set the tempreture for my outlet fan to say 25c for lights on but then I' m not there to adjust the thermostat to a lights off temp. Ideally I need some thermostatic fan controller that would keep my fan running during lights on for one tempreture and then switches itself to a different tempreture for lights off. I found this bit of kit on the net and eBay which would be perfect but it's Amercian. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GroZone-Temp-1V-Fan-Speed-Cool-Thermostat-Hydroponics-/231075069541?pt=US_Garden_Tools&hash=item35cd25be65 Does anybody know of something similar to this from a UK company? Or does any have a setup that works like this? Or any ideas on how to control the lights on/off temps in this way? cheers
