Makeshift Smell Control (how to use a finished filter )

71 posts in this topic

The thing is tho, if your a grower or a smoker then your sense of smell ends up fucked & you just dont notice the smell, so its very easy to think every things hunky dory but your Neighbors will be like,

his house stinks of weed, the postie thinks your house stinks of weed, any delivery guy thinks your house stinks of weed etc etc etc until it comes & bites you on the arse.

 

I should have pointed it out earlier but I should point out that I would NEVER grow without using a good carbon filter, I even advocate that if you've got the funds, have a spare filter at hand as a good filter

is worth its weight in gold in the right circumstances, for example, in my old flat I had cops, builders, family & even the landlord & not one of them smelt a thing.

even where I live today my next door neighbour is a cop who's all bright eyed & pointed ears lol  so stealth is a priority, I even went & got a large tub of ONA to use at night in the hallway when

I'm smokin heavy just in case the cunt or anyone else comes a knockin so the smell doesn't knock them on their arses when I open the door.

lol I would love to get an oldtimer to chime in here and ask how they managed back before carbon filters were commonplace.  cook curry every few hours? Smoke ciggys, clean house with bleach, eat durian, live in a building with lots of curry eaters,  own a ferret, live in a mansion and grow in the back,back, back, back, back room lol Light incense?  not give too much fucks?

 

carbon filters were around from the start of home growing in the early 90s in the uk

 

in california where they used to grow tiny clones under fluoros in the 80s, the law wasn't strict then, and they have a bigger country so could grow in a discreet place where the smell wasn't a problem

Homemade filter is the way to go though, for sure. Carbon is pretty cheap.

 

the problem with making your own filter is getting the carbon pellets to pack down tight enough

 

they use big shaker machines for this in the factory, and at home it's very hard to get them packed down

 

that means that there are air gaps and so the filter is not doing its job properly

to add to this thread, a way of adding 'insurance' to your exhaust is to put an ona gel air freshener in the exhaust duct ;)
