  1. With a fan blowing air into the can filter. Sorry if its confusing.
  2. I'm no expert, but a lot of the people around here are saying to hook it up so the fan pulls air through the filter and shoot it through your ducting and out of the grow area. There are a few videos on youtube from garden suppliers that support this.
  3. To answer your question though, I've seen people tape it on. To do it correctly, that I'm still trying to find out. (Hence the search lol)
  4. You want your fan pulling air through the filter out of your room. For mine I taped and zip tied for extra security..... my huge carbon filter fell on my foot and fucked it up while setting up the tent so extra zip ties and tape was a must.
    look at the back of my tent to see

  5. Mine won't fit in my tent so I have it pulling through the cool tube and it blows through the filter. If I open my tent the room instantly smells so I know its working.
    And I used ducting tape to attach the fan to the filter.

  6. My set up is my fan over my lights, sucks in hot smelly air sends it out through the wall through ducting and blows it through the filter before going into the next room clean...i could have walkers in there and you wouldnt smell em.

  7. Yup. Pulling is much better than pushing air. And you can get an inline fan and purchase hose clamps in the right size for securing the ducting to the can and luminaire.

    The can filter fell on your foot? OUCH! Those suckers are heavy. Gads! :eek:
  8. ^ yeah you see my carbon filter in the picture lol.... its really heavy. I may of fractured or broke my foot but I sucked it up and swelling went down a little more than a month later.
  9. I've bonked my head on my carbon filter more than once. It smarts, but can't even imagine one crashing down on my foot!
