Rhino fans.

Hey all, I'm planning my setup for a 1 plant 75x75x200 grow and have been recommended a 6 inch Rvk to get a decent amount of passive flow from the intake.

 

I was looking at the rhino fans and for a first timer with a small grow they seem the right price point yet I've heard many many members say they have turned to utter shite recently.

 

I really don't want to have to stick another hundred quid on the top of my tight budget for a better fan n filter, are there any other budget brands that will do for  a year or so until I can master the basics and move onto something bigger

Just my opinion, but I think a Quality filter is one of the most important items in a set up - for the sake of an extra hundred could mean a lot less hassle down the line - also, a quality filter will last up to 3 years.. cheap ones not so much so it doesn't really cost much extra in the long run ;)

 

*edit (can confirm...rhino filters are utter shite now)

Hi @Mimicker

 

Is the RVK a systemair fan? From my limited experience, systemair rvk fans are excellent - powerful, not too loud, and reliable.

 

From my experience, I won't buy another rhino filter because I caught a definite whiff from my last grow using one - it was subtle, but enough for me to decide I won't buy another.

 

Best of luck!

 

Oh! As @prawn has already said, filter is your main barrier between you and everyone else knowing you grow... Its a good investment to get as good a filter as you can.

a 6" fan is a bit ott for a 315w cmh or a 400w hps & I'd be more inclined to get the 5" fan.

Although I only run a 400watt light, I have a 6” 150L rvk. It’s on a fan controller and never seems to go above 50%.  Very quiet indeed.

 Also future proof, in case of an upgrade

My rhino pro filter from day one has always had a sweet smell from it even with no grow on the go, more noticeable when its getting warm air sucked in.

That's what I was thinking, also with a 6" and passive airflow ensures enough air going in, right?
