I think it'd be cheaper to buy a line filter than to try to make 1. But I suppose you can use some fine filter papers and wrap it around your pump.

I read somewhere something about being able to filter the air through water with lime in it, anybody know anything about this? If not I guess I just wrap my pump in Tyvek :tongue:

Put it in a strerile shoebox with 2 holes; 1 for the hose out, and one for the power cord. Fill the shoebox with polyfil. The two holes will allow air in, and the polyfil will act to filter the incoming air.

Good suggestion. Five shrooms for you. Even better would be to make it a tupper ware container. If it isnt air tight then just put some weather stripping around the seal. I think if you applied twisters idea with the tupperware part, youd be sitting pretty.

Ah great idea guys, I think i will do something that is kinda a combination of both...I will drill some holes in a container and tape Tyvek over the holes. Thanks.

I just leave the lid off and fill it with polyfil. Helps to eliminate what little noise there is as well.

Another simple inline filter..take a empty film canister (the little black ones) and put a hole in top and in the bottom for your hoses to fit in. Fill with polyfil then stick it inline between the pump and chamber. Takes up less space then putting the pump in a box.

Be careful and make sure your pump recieves adequate air flow, or you will burn it up in no time flat. The polyfill ideas are probably better than Tyvek. Tyvek is good for allowing some passive gas exchange, but have you ever tried to blow through it? The puny diaphragm air pumps would have very little luck unless you had it in a huge box of Tyvek(more surface area = more air flow).

Anymore ideas are welcome, as I haven't figured out how I will deal with this either.

I agree with the tyvek thing.

IMO Either of those ideas would be best. If you want to cover it and reduce noise, fill a box with polyfil and leave the lid off (this gives it lots of air flow, believe me) or if you want a small inline filter make one simply taking a film canister (any sort of small canister would work, a 20 ounce bottle, whatever) and fill it with polyfill and cut your line between the pump and the chamber and stick it in there.

bubbling through lime will absorb the co2 but i dont think it would be quite as effective filter wise as a homemade hepa box.

I'm going to use a HEPA vacuum cleaner bag for my air pump filter. I think it should work pretty well.

Cut a slit in it, so you can stick it in, put it inside and then tape up where the lines/cord come out.
