    All the shit you build rules. I'm building one of these too. We got the carbon filter squares made for like an AC instead of the powder and pantyhose, everything else is the same. I'll let you know how it goes.

    First thing to build is the inner chamber.

    pic1 - supplies:
    6"-4" reducer
    4" cap
    2 - 4.5" screw fasteners
    10" length of Heavy duty chicken wire
    2 - pannyhose legs

    pic2 - Wrap the 10" length of chicken wire around the 4" end cap to form a cylinder. I used a bunch of zip ties to secure the cylinder's shape.

    Pic3 - Slide the pannyhose legs over the cylinder to act as a screen for the carbon.

    Pic4 - Secure the end cap on one end of the cylinder with one of the 4.5" screw fasteners.

    Pic5 - Secure the 6"-4" reducer to the open end of the cylinder with the other 4.5" screw fastener.

    That's it. The inner chamber is done. Set aside we'll need it in a bit.

    Next to build is the Outer Chamber.

    Pic1-Supplies
    6" cap
    2 - 6.5" screw clamps/fasteners
    12" length of Heavy duty chicken wire
    3 - pannyhose legs

    pic2 - Wrap the 12" length of chicken wire around the 6" end cap to form a cylinder. I used a bunch of zip ties to secure the cylinder's shape.

    Pic3 - Slide the pannyhose legs over the cylinder to act as a screen for the carbon.

    Pic4 - Now you should have all of these parts....almost done

    Pic5- Now slide the 6" cylinder over the 6" section of the 6"-4" reducer (and the inner chamber) and secure with a 6.5" screw fastener

    Filling with Activated carbon and finishing it.

    pic1 - Without the 6" end cap on the bottom, the filter should look like this....notice this space in between the chambers....this is where the activated carbon goes.

    pic2 - I used an oil spout with the end cut off to more easily disperse the carbon into the filter.

    pic3 - Here is the filter filled with carbon.

    pic4 - Finally put the 6" end cap on the bottom and we're good to go.

    Pic5 - Here is the finally product.


    Have fun kiddies...post if you have a question

    how long will a carbon scrubber last, does the activated carbon need changing after every harvest or so?

    No problemo...I made it from a how-to just like the one i made. Might as well pass it on...The activated carbon will probably cost you the most money. The rest it just a bunch of low costing items.

    Great how-to and parts list!

    You can use different sized Caps if you need a larger filter (ie 8" cap and 8-6 reducer), and I fill mine with the crystal-type kitty litter - cheaper than activated carbon and works just as good!

    This is very true also. If you had a large room you can upsize it all. I'm going to have to try that type of kitty litter.
    See you Tokudai at the mini pool 3 table.

    any 4 inch fan preferable inline duct fan or something of the like. canfan, vortex, etc. Try to get a fan with highest possible cfms for your use.

    iono if its just cause im stoned or what, but the end without a endcap the 6-4" reducer part, how do you keep the carbon from spilling out into your ducting and how do you seal the inner screen in the reducer so that you get the most suction through the carbon....?if you could post a pick looking down the reducer that would clear this up for me...thx man


    edit, ok looking more closly i can see how you made the seal, but the reducers i get at the depot dont have a lip on the inside were i would clamp the 4" sreen to, do you put in a 4" collar into the reducer to get this lip?
