1 extractor for 3 tents?

So.. My friend wants to start up now, and he wants to do a 3 tent set up. He wants to do 3; 2x4x6ft tents to get a yield every month. One thing he wasn't sure of is if we could get away with using one big extractor fan for the 3 somehow?

Any advice is appreciated, Cheers :oldtoker:

I did it with 2 tents, however you need to be careful with things like pests and pollen making their way from one to the other. I linked the tens with ducting and covered the ends of the ducting with tights to minimise the chances of cross-contamination.

I don't see why it couldn't be done with 3 tents, although you'll need a pretty big fan to ensure the air is exchanged often enough. Use the calculator on the grow room section and add the volumes of the tent together and go for a fan bigger than the sum.

the air gets to depleted plus it gets to hot and moisture would be an issue . probs carbon filter would need changed more often too

Mate, 3 tents that size sounds a lot of percy & is the sites mods dont like to see bigger sized grows that size on the site.

Hardly a lot ? That's not actually much bigger than a 1.2m x 2.4m tent which there are many of on this site...but my maths is terrible so I might be wrong?

It's actually a smaller area as the OP's suggested 3 tent area would be 24 square feet & the 1.2m x 2.4m tent is over 30 square feet (footprint as opossed to volume)

sorry on my fucked phone earlier, if the dimensions are right 2ft x 4ft x 6ft ?

then that gives you a 32 square foot of space & times 3 works out as a 96square foot area to ventilate.

4ft wide, 6ft long & 6ft high works out as 1.2m x 1.8m x 1.8m.
