Always check New Carbon Filters...

64 posts in this topic

At least my last 2 rhinos leaked smell. I only know this because my outlet is at ground floor level. How many are venting tainted air through a high level vent they can't check?

 

It's no longer a concern for me as I won't buy them again.

What is the difference between them guys??????

 

Getting way confused here...

 

Rhino is Australian and made in China

Mountain air in Australian and made in China

 

Carboair is made in China and sealed in EU.

 

The rest I have no idea and info is biased and thin on the ground.

 

They all claim to use the best carbon rinsed in dinosaur shite

 

Im going to be in the market for one soon.....the cost/size is irrelevant....it is the MOST important piece of equipment I require.

 

Need facts and not chinese whispers :yep:

I don't think carboair are made in China. There is a video on the global air supplies showing how they make the filters.

reminds me of all that hash that was found in the container full of new rhino pro filters, they had no carbon in, just blocks of hash.

they probly got a few in before that, and sold the empty filters maybe. lol 

i have a 10 inch rhino pro here, that's working fine after a years grow. spose its best to check them now when buying them new. 

I’ve got a ten inch rhino pro in the loft that went shit in less than a year! Hmmm I wonder I’ll be up there later haha

ha ha, you never know bro. lol 

they were the big 10 inch rhino's too what you have so id check inside. they were big slabs of hash inside where the carbon goes in them mate, i think this maybe where the filters in shops with gaps/ light shinning through the filters came from. they were getting them over emptying the slabs topping up with carbon maybe, then sending them to shops to sell. i cant see rhino selling great filters for all these years then just stop filling them up rite with carbon or using cheap carbon. it dont make sence to me as ive used them for years i have a 10 inch r/pro here now i got a good few years ago, it still works as if new. rhino need to get this problem sorted out as i imagine there money making has nose dived down the past like 12 months at least. :yinyang:

I’ll have to dig it out bro, after that shenanigan with the rhino just conking out I use original filter or something, fuck knows?? I’ve had it a few years and not a wiff once. I think Vrg recommended it....I remember the guy I got the rhino from he was a dodgy bastard, owned the grow shop and sold cuttings etc etc. It won’t surprise me if I got a big hole in it lol I’ve just got out the shower so theirs no way I’m going in the loft.. I will have to battle my o.c.d all night now lol. Look out for an update around 3am where Curiosity has overcome my need to be clean lol

I recently bought a Phresh filter, uber impressed by it's ott build quality. The polished ali appealled to the tart in me. Very light too. I'm also running a 6" Fox filter, nowt special but working perfectly after 6 months but it'll be replaced by a Phresh when the time comes.

So do mine both leak. I've just ordered a 6-inch Phresh Carbon Filter 150mm/300mm (540m³/h) with the 6-inch Hyperfan stealth.

Will do ken.  I thought it was time for a new system.   I always used Rhino but these last few I've had are shit and a change of fan too. So I hope these are a lot better and No Leaks. And the Hyper stealth comes with its own fan controller which is detachable if you want to run it at full speed constantly.

Im looking into upgrading my extraction fan to EC motors......bloody expensive business tho

EC Technology stands for Electronically Commutated and combines AC and DC voltages, which is essentially a fan with a brushless DC motor, bringing the best of both technologies: the motor runs on a DC voltage, but with a normal AC supply. DC motors already have low power consumption but if used in an AC application, the power needed converting AC to DC, using a bulky, inefficient transformer. The EC motor incorporates voltage transformation within the motor. The non-rotating part of the motor (stator) is extended to make room for an electronic PCB board which includes power transformation AC to DC, as well as the controls.

All the features of the external rotor motor are kept, including compact assembly, easy speed controllability, efficiency and characteristics.

Are you guys really getting more than 24 months on your carbon filters?

 

Years ago (9 years ago when I previously grew) I always used to replace mine after 9 to 11 months & the filters I've always used & never had smell leaks from are from Growell & they used to state their non-budget  filters are good for 9mths plus. My old filter then went on to serve my clone & mum tent without issues.

Their Prima-Klima filters specification claims they are good for 18mths, which I'm going to test vigorously, as I grow some stinky strains! 

But even if they only last for 12mths it's still about a fiver a month for smell protection. :bong:
