#1

can anyone tell me if you can replace the charcoal in a air scrubber?if so where do you get the right
activated charcoal do you use powder ,pellets? or is it worth doing ?


#2

My hydro store can remove and replace the charcoal


#3

thank u where is your store? i can probably do it just need to know what to use , is it worth doing or better to just buy a new one


#4

it is not really that much savings to justify the pain In the ass, but if ya are adventurous you can utube making activated charcoal. It may be a fun project to keep ya busy.


#5

Some of the scrubbers can be reversed and used from the other end. I tried it on mine and it did not work that well. I think it is easier to just replace them.


#6

Activate charcoal is readily available and is cheap as can be. To properly use it however you have to wash it which is A GIGANTIC PAIN IN THE ASS! I’ve done buckets of it.

thank you guess i will buy a new one

I would probably look at how your filter is put together. If there are rivets that are easily drilled out and replaced, may be worth trying.

I agree with @Myfriendis410 there are a few prepping steps you’ll want to follow. I’m sure there’s probably a few tutorials on YouTube.

I think its much easier to just replace filter when its used up they are minimal in cost
