Rhino filter

16 posts in this topic

Are rhino filters really as shit as everyone says they are? I have a brand new 8inch one in the box and my plants are starting to stink with my old filter which was used before I got it it was alright couldn’t smell it outside the room just a little whiff inside the room but now it’s starting to ponk outside the room so either need to buy a need one tomorrow or swap it out for this other filter i have only problem is it’s rhino and I’ve heard they’re not what they use to be

if you have had the spare rhino  for a few years it should be ok,

I think its just in the last couple of years they have gone downhill. 

if it was mine, id take it back to the shop you bought it from and get it changed for something that works, like a carboair or a mountain air.

It’s been in the box about 2 years, il try it tomorrow see if it’s any good overnight if not il take it back to shop see if they’ll swap it, I got it from greens will they change it even though it’s been 2 years that they don’t know but wouldn’t they want to see a receipt?

I must of got lucky with my 6” rhino pro as I only got in just over a year ago before I heard all this on here about them going bad but it’s been absolutely fine even in high humidity but I definitely wouldn’t purchase another one it’s just not worth the risk!

Carbo air next for me I think!

:yep:

Hopefully it will be ok then as it’s been sat in the box for about 2years maybe even longer than that ? 3years come to think of it I’ll give a go tomorrow 

 

problem is if I take it back to greens and they swap it they only stock rhino filters looking at there website the other filter they have is CAN inline filters which is totally different looking the pictures both ends of the filter are open

There is a small Rhino ,a shorter type and apparently they don't last so long . If you shake it up ,and it helps to filter the scent then it has done it's job . I got about two years out of a cheapo ebay filter ,and it was oversized and over specified but I'm again using a big rhino in a tiny space ,with an extract fan on a low setting and I think or hope it has many years left .

They let you take it back and swap yea? Problem is I use greens and I don’t think they stock any others, so far it’s been fine hopefully will see me through a grow or two
