  1. Acinfinity Clouidline Ec fan UK EC motor high efficiency phresh gas After much anticipation, we're extremely excited to announce that the new AC Infinity Cloundline range of EC fans have officially landed! https://diyleduk.com/collections/ac-infinity-cloudline-ec-dimmable-fans Introducing the high efficiency exhaust fans that wont break the bank. Featuring an EC motor, high air flow rate, low power consumption, quiet operation and a choice of controllers as standard. Possessing many qualities found only at higher price-points, if you're looking for quiet and effective extraction, then look no further than the cloudline range of energy efficient, EC motor fans. https://diyleduk.com/collections/ac-infinity-cloudline-ec-dimmable-fans We've invested a considerable amount into bringing you this range of fans, and have bought as much stock as we realistically could. But as usual, the demand is crazy so we don't anticipate this round of stock to last long! - Craig
  2. Hello, I’m just wondering in the ‘Ecotechnics Evolution Digital Fan Speed Controller’ works with the new EC fans or not? If so does it work with pretty much all fans? Cheers
  3. Can anyone recommend a 6” fan that’s reasonably quiet but not too expensive? For a 1m x 1m tent, I currently have a 5” kaisen in-line which is too loud even with a speed controller. I have a max budget of £150 but would like to stay well within this if possible. The Cloudline ones on @diyleduk look mint. How quiet are they? Can anyone recommend a cheaper option? Cheers wreck-heads
  4. Hi, I've seen quite a few posts recently about saving head room in a tent, or not being able to lift the equipment to the top of the tent. It is often assumed that this is where the carbon filter must be located but there are other options, the fan & cf can even go outside the tent it necessary. I am in a wheelchair so had to opt for #4 in the below diagram with the fan & filter in a box on the floor (outside the tent) with a cushion underneath to dampen the vibrations/noise and it works a treat. Good negative pressure in the tent, no whiffs, job's a good 'un. (Fan blows air through filter). Hope this helps a few of you Tip: fully stretching out ducting reduces noise. Found this diagram on this forum but forget who posted it. If this is your picture, thank you

  7. hi guys need some help to minimise whoosh noise exiting to outside property, ive attached a shite job of a diagram. my question is - will the box with the extra carbon filter beside the tent reduce the whooshing sound & if so what cfm fan will i need with all the 90 bends any other suggestions will be of great help
  8. Hi, I've been trying to maintain my temp/RH according to the recommended values as set by the VPD chart: If I put my extraction on the lowest setting, I get temps of about 25, which means the RH should be around 60-70%, but the problem is it sits around 30%, so I've been messing around with sprayers etc trying to get the RH up, but cant seem to manage to keep the RH up. If I switch the extraction off in an attempt to keep the moisture in the air and raise humidity, then I can get RH up to 60-70 and the temps go to 29. This puts me in the green zone according to the VPD charts, but in this setting, I don't have any extraction on. My question is whether it is ok to sit with no extraction in order to maintain RH, or is extraction needed at all times, which is more "important" in term of plant growth? Cheers
  9. Hi guys Got a new 1.2m x 1.2m x 2m tent set up in the corner of a spare bedroom. Living in an old rattly terraced house with a family next door. When I used to sleep in that room it felt like I could hear the family pretty loudly so I've always felt a bit conscious of the sound of my fans since I set them up. Particularly at night when it's quiet. I've got the window slightly ajar in there to prevent condensation build up and noticed I could hear the fans humming when I've got my upstairs loft window open (where I sleep at night.) This is before I've even set up my extractor which will be considerably louder and I'm getting anxious that it will raise suspicion. My neighbours bedroom window is a few metres from the grow room window - can I shut the window to dampen the noise from the fan? What then to do about any condensation build-up on the window? Any advice / peace of mind would be greatly appreciated! (Am I being paranoid?) Cheers
  10. 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
  11. So this is for all you urban growers out there. How are you guys hiding your extraction when venting out of the window? Last time around I attached my extraction duct to the radiator behind the curtain and just left the window open. It worked just fine but I'd like to seal off the window with a hole for extraction, giving me better control of temps at different times of year and better protection from smell leaks when opening up the tent. The best idea I've been able to come up with is to cover the entire recess with a layer of hardboard and fit a duct spigot. Obviously the hole where the extraction point sits would be massively obvious from outside. And a house with boarded-up windows looks just as bad. So I thought about buying a made-to-measure wooden Venetian blind to fit the recess. Now I thought about simply fitting the blind in the recess and fitting the board behind it but the slats would be hanging free to jostle in the breeze caused by the extracted air. This led me to the idea of taking the blind apart and attaching them to the board with glue (or something) in an angled up position so nothing could be seen by passers by except an open blind. Sorry for the rambling and I hope this makes sense as I'm working my way through a grinder full. I'd love to hear some ideas. Cost effective ones are better. This idea I've mentioned would cost about 50...
  12. I have been wondering about venting my extraction out through a window. Does anybody do this ? The stealth window box is a great idea but I can only see it working with windows that open up and down. Would this be possible to do somehow with a window that is on a latch and opens outwards. Example: (The loft would be a better place although the flat next door shares the same loft space so this is almost out of the question.) There is a extraction vent in the bathroom but that is a bit far from the grow space. Any advice/help would be appreciated Thanks!
  13. 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!
  14. Morning all gonna take advantage of a black Friday discount a supplier is offering and upgrade my carbon filter. my rhino pro is at the end of it life well at least for the flower tent. Im set on getting a CarboAir as heard good reviews on them. question is which do you think would be the better choice 6inch 50mm bed 330mm length 6inch 50mm bed 660mm length 8inch 50mm bed 500mm (with reducer to 6inch) 6inch 60mm bed 660mm will be going into my 1.2 tent. Any experience with the different thickness bed of carbon? Im thinking best to go for the thicker but are they worth the extra money?!!
  15. Couldn’t help giving it a name, although really it’s still just an idea and quite probably a stupid one. The name is also questionable as neither decarboxylation nor extraction contain an ‘s’... but sugar does so it makes sense in my post volcano brain. The idea is to combine the decarboxylation with the extraction by adding sugar to the water when making canna coconut oil.. 1 gram of sugar will raise the boiling point of a litre of water by .94f so my thinking is if I chuck 30g in there I could accurately achieve decarb temps while extracting into the oil at the same time (My oven is not accurate). So I guess Its possible that some canna oil might remain in the syrup and also that some of the sugar might bond with the coconut oil.. only one way to find out.. I make kefir with the finished oil so any sugar that bonds with it should get eaten up by the probiotics anyway. Any comments welcomed.. to be continued as am currently out of trim.
  16. Hi guys got a 1.2 tent looking at the phresh 6 inch fan. Was wonder how you connect it to the filter and ducting as i cant see a lip like my current rhino fan? also would the 6inch be enough for a 1.2 space thanks
  17. So I have a Bay 6 XL loft tent running a Telos-0008 and only currently have a 4" extraction fan sucking through a Ox carbon filter. I am looking to upgrade my ventilation system and having a intake fan paired with a fan speed controller to keep the environment dialled in. I am considering venting into a box buried underneath the shed filled with woodchips and some kind of oil or smell neutraliser, as im paranoid that my Sticky Beast Autos are going to stink to high heaven come flower ripening time and my neighbours are going to suss me out. Has anyone ever done something like this before ? Im hoping that if I rig it up properly and get a decent fan system inside the tent and outside in the shed venting down the same ducting into the box and then out into the underneath of the shed I can kill a lot of the odour and stay stealth - thoughts please?
  18. Hi all, Does anyone have any guidance on setting up extraction for rooms with co2? One of the things I'm looking at with my new 1.5x3m setup, is running un-filtered extraction through the cool hoods so I can have a lower extraction flow rate of my environment. I currently have a 5" 380m3/hr fan which has done well to keep up with the temps of my 1000w HPS. This runs through a 6" carbon filter and 6" ducting. I've built a foam and wooden box around it and surprisingly been able to reduced the noise of it from 63dB to 54dB while at 100% and from 54dB to 38dB while at 50% power. I'm looking to add another light, so I was thinking to change my cooling fan to an 8" 700 m3/hr and use the 5" for environment only. This would allow for a sealed yet small vacuum situation for co2. But if times get hot, I can have them both pulling air and can turn the co2 off.
  19. Hi All Im going to upgrade my setup after this crop (my 3rd so far only so i'm still pretty new to it all) currently have a 2.4 x 1.2 x 1.8 tent and i started out with 3 x 600w viparspectra lights. last two yields were only 15oz from 3 plants, and 18oz from the 2nd yield, 3rd one is 2 weeks to go after taking in lots of advice, it seems that those lights just dont output the kind of power needed for decent yields and for this latest crop i have borrowed 2 complete 600w HPS lights with normal parabolic reflectors, and new bulbs (omega dual spectrum, and Lumii Black ballasts). i have retained the middle LED for a side by side comparison.. so far the two plants under HPS are producing much larger and fatter colas so i'm sold on HPS and dumping the LED's. a little about my current setup: 2.4x1.2x 1.8 tent 2 x HPS Lumii ballasts and omega dual spectrum lamps 600w, 1 viparspectra reflector 600w led alien easyfeed system, 30l pots 60/40 coco 24 hour feed schedule rhino 5" 360cm3 fan, carbon filter into rhino silent theromstatic fan controller passive intake using 2 x 8" duct s bends for light baffle feeding canna nutes 1400 oil filled rad for night with inkbird controller plants are 2 x Kritical Bilbao, and 1 Incredible bulk Im growing in my cellar, which helps to regulate the ambient air, its about 15C in winter and 18-19 in summer my next upgrade will be to a 3m x 1.5m x 1.8m tent which will need extraction upgrade im thinking of an RVK L1 6" fan and mountain air or similar filter. i think that gets me up to 60 x air extract per hour even with filter and ducting my real question is how many lights for that size space? i intend to start growing 4 plants. my concern is with heat, and getting rid of it.. and the next question is cool tubes.. do i or don't I some people love them, some hate them. Im having a bit of success at the moment using a dump fan to duct cool air towards the HPS lights, but I hav'nt used this setup in summer yet thanks for takking the time to read and reply
  20. Heya Guys, I've been away for a while as my Mrs has been very sick indeed. She is in chronic pain and it is breaking my heart more and more each day. Unfortunately we are no way near a diagnosisis yet but I want to start treating at home with CBD oils and Edibles. I've had a quick look through the seedbanks and always have a preference towards Dinafem. But can anyone recommend a strain that is suitable for CDB extraction?
  21. I have a 4" carbon filter which still has plenty of use in it. I'm thinking of upgrading my fan though as temperatures got dicey when I added more light in bloom last time and don't really want to fork out for another filter. Will a 6" fan (Can max-fan pro) make my 4" Rhino hobby filter die extremely quickly? Thanks all.
  22. Hello! I have recently purchased this Variac: https://www.sentera.eu/Product/Details/eng/108450/230-VAC-transformer-fan-speed-controller-15-A and this extraction fan: https://www.amazon.co.uk/XFLO100S-Inline-Bathroom-Extractor-Standard/dp/B01GCG35RA Despite reading the mounting instruction, I have literally no idea on what to do to connect the Variac to my fan. I have tried searching on the forum but I am not able to find a step-by-step guide for newbies like me. This is the last problem I need to solve before starting my grow, so I would really appreciate if someone who's got a similar setup could help me out. There's nothing on Youtube and can't seem to find anything that explains the mounting for a complete electricity illiterate. Thanks in advance guys.
