Quiet air-exchange methods?
    #4641355 - 09/10/05 11:33 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Iam looking for a method of creating automatic gas exchange without the noise of an airstone/air pump as stealth is very important in my setup. Some sort of large box with a filter patch would seem the ideal choice but there doesn't seem to be any on the Internet.

What type of grow are you doing? Cakes, casings, poo?

Also, try to consolidate your questions into 1 thread or keep asking questions in the same thread. You don't have to start a new thread for every question you have, people will keep answering your questions either way. I noticed you have like 4 new threads in this forum in an hour or two. This pushes all of the other threads down.

I would do a PMP. It uses an air pump setup, but if you put the pump on a towel or something, it makes virtually no noise. The bubbles don't make much noise either. If that's still too loud, tell your parents you don't want to share a room anymore. :grin:

I am guessing fanning is just out of the question?

No matter what, air pumps and bubblers are going to make a significant amount of noise when they are in a room alone without other noise. Is this room your chamber will be in completely silent? Or is there a computer going, an electric fan, aquarium. etc.

Stealh is always a big part of my grows, so these pumps are out of the question if you REALLY want to be stealthy.

Just fan them 4+ times a day and they will be fine, really......

I went a little over board, but this is what I did to my cake FC. This way, I use no air pumps or manual fanning.

What's all the tubing for? I understand the polyfil part, but the tubing has me a little confused. :confused:

I wouldn't call the noise "significant", but I do agree that manual fanning would be the silent way to do things if you have the time to do it.

So the shrooms wouldnt rub against the polyfill when they grew. Also, so the condensation wouldnt run down the filter. Thats all. Not necessary at all. Like I said, I kinda went overboard.
