    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.

    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:thumbsup:

    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:thumbsup: :smokin:

    how long will a carbon scrubber last, does the activated carbon need changing after every harvest or so?
     
  12. Bodom Children Of

    Bodom Children Of Registered+

    yeah about every harvest...

    Well Im sure I speak for all of us when I say thanks for do'n it. It's been enlightening...

    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. :smokin:
