So I'm looking for a CO2 system. Not going to use yeast and sugar as this is a 10x12 room with a bunch of girls.

So what is a good controller and co2 generator on the market. I don't want the most expensive, just a good controller that will shut off the exhaust fan while the CO2 is on and keep it at a 1500 PPM automatically.

Also what about the water cooled CO2 generator from Hydrogen? Does anyone use this? I want the generator to produce minimal heat. and not have to go through tanks every week.

Please guide me in the right direction to choose a controller and CO2 generator for around $1000.

thanks.

i've had a sentinel chhc-1 for one grow now, im happy with it.....And i haven't even used "co2 fuzzy logic" on it yet....... I just got a 20lbs tank and a regulator with solenoid, so in a month or so i'll be all good to go...

my only question left i have is....using co2,or having my ppm of co2 in my room at 1300-1600ppm what effects will this do to the room temp and r/h????does having high co2ppm raise temps or r/h???? thx.

This is all really good info thanks. I think the sentienal is the way to go with controllers and prob the tanks to start as I don't want to by de-humidifies and such. I'm bringing in fresh air, and have exhaust, so that paired with the co2 system and I think I should be dialed. Again thanks for all the info.

Oh ya, has anyone used Harvest Master for a controller?

When using gas there is no change but using a burner the temp goes up and the RH down.


Don't you mean RH goes up? Burning hydrocarbons generates a lot of water.

I think he is refering to the heat given off by the co2 burner which would rise temps and lower r/h...

but if tons of dehumidified water was sitting in the room it will effect the rooms r/h as you said and the r/h indeed will go up.


And while i got you here. What is the recommended co2 ppm?? 1300ppm,1500ppm? I've read so many numbers.
thx in advance..

i was under the asumption that co2 was a much cooler and heavier gas than reg air , just what i heard though as i dont know much about co2, but i do know that when you shood a paintball gun with co2 the co2 air comming out is much cooler, so in my opinion if you have a sealed room , co2 would help stabalize room temps and keep them low....no? not saying they would really lower temps, just help keep em low a bit....
