Is that the budget filter you used in the picture?
The reason I ask is you have rivets,mine has hex bolts I dont know if its a new design or what or its just the bigger ones but does any one know if the carbon is actually different between the budget and cf range?
I know there was a mention of different carbon pellets but in which filters?
See now I did have the 6" budget but it was cheaper to buy another 6" then get it re filled but now im thinking I could of easily driled it open re filled my self and bolted or riveted back together.
Any way I chose the cf1000 due to re fill not knowing much about re filling but now im thinking,crap I could of saved 100 quid and brought the budget and drilled it my self and re fil when time comes.or have I really got a better filter for the extra money with better carbon?.
I guess my question is basicly,is there difference between the carbon used in them as they give shorter use times on the budget and if it is different,is there a better carbon I should get for it when its re fill time?
I read 1 fiters description,not sure if it was rhino or another but they were pricey for small ones and the filter lasted way longer,thats the kind of thing im trying to get too here,budget filter filled with the carbon the longer lasting ones have or is it all rubbish and there just the same,just different sizes and looks (the carbon).
Any chance of a quick guide like 4" filter needs bla bla kg carbon and 5" needs ba bla and so on as I dont understand some of the maths invoved,like the 15000 cm/ccs for example.
Great post and I also recon the budget filter is advertised un re fillable to make you buy another or the expensiver one but now a days it seems cheaper to just buy a new one on the smaller filters,kind of thinking I should of stook with my 6" now and drilled it open,I dont know cheaper places for carbon but I do know that I could of replaced my 6" with a new one rather then go my local shop for a re fill,not the case with my cf1000 though,hence the questions.
If its £30 to re fil a 6" I would say have a look about as Ive seen new for a litte more.
Best carbon to use would be appreciated.
Sorry for long boring post and thanks in advanced.
