  1. whats everyone use in there carbon scrubbers the pelleted stuff or the crushed stuff?
  2. anyone know which is better?
  3. Im using Walmart's activated carbon they look like little pellets. I don't know about crushed carbon but my guess would be its the same.
  4. I dont think it really matters. They all do the same thing, get whichever you can find cheaper.
  5. Id think it would be crushed. the volume of air being passed through a confined space would encounter more actual surface area, less actual space between particles. think of it terms of a strainer/colander... the larger the holes, the more pasta falls thru. Crushed might restrict air flow more, but may scrub better?
  6. yea i used to buy stuff that was in chunks instead of granuals which was great but granuals seem to restrist too much...besides I get 30 pounds of the pelleted stuff for 40 bucks
