Filter box material
    #2239280 - 01/13/04 03:12 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Tyvek is a little hard to draw air through, so would it be too much of a strain on the motor of an air pump if that was used as a filter in the filter box?

Or should I just go with poly-fil?

I used a piece of hepa vacuum cleaner bag cloth.  I put a piece on the inside of the plastic and the outside just to be sure.  I'm probably just being overly cautious, but why not? As long as it doesn't put too much strain on the motor?  U think it would?  It gets pleanty of air ouput still.  How could I tell if its gonna burn up the motor?

The motor casing would get hot if the motor is working too hard. Run it for 10-15 minutes and see if there is constant heat. Check it often if you suspect anything.
