OK so as of right now I have a perforated pipe that goes around my room and the end of the pipe is open so air flows through the small holes and out the end. So my thought is to use pcv pipe with and end cap and drill holes so that the air will flow a bit better to under the canopy. Does this make any sense? or should I try and cap the pipe I have and see what happens? Just thinking out load.
All i can say it give it a try cap off existing and see how it works out you can always spend more $ later lol
Thanks yeah I give that a go. Don’t really need to spend the money. I will let you know how it goes. I may end up put a few bigger holes in the pipe I have now but first cap it and see.
Cap it and see what type of pressure your sealing with you may not need to increase hole size
I’ve always hung my fans so I don’t know about this from my own experience but another grower that I know told me that every time he bolted his fans down instead of hanging them, that it cut the fans life in half.
Something about it hanging is a buffer to the vibration created by the fan. He said when he bolted them to something that the vibrations would break down the small parts in the fan prematurely.
Like I said, I’ve never bolted them down myself, this was just some info passed on to me by another grower
Thank you for the info. Good to know. This is my first grow in the new grow room. So I making list for things to work on.
I’m with CB, cap existing and see how the flow acts. I would prefer to have the flexibility of the pipe you have to adjust flow and move to alternate areas if need be.
MY two cents is that working on and improving your grow area is one of the major “fun factor” elements of the process for me. Now, doing that without whipping out the wallet is even more fun!!!
@Smokin_ernie you could cap the end and let it flow through the holes.
I think the best results you could have from the current fan would be to add T’ees at strategic air flow priorities in the room. You would have less restrictive air flow, and still control where the air flow needs to be.
