    Its only purpose is to reduce odor, if there is no odor then I would not run it, save it for when its needed..

    If your humidity is in check without it running then I'd also save it for when you need it

      Back in the day these were very expensive due to the carbon coming from strange and far places like Australia even South Africa,
      hence if you buy one ensure you can change the carbon inside your self ,(with ease) like buying one with screws ..rather than rivitted together, lol
      to extend its life avoid running if you can in the rain or when rain is due as the vapor but clogs up the carbon make it almost useless until it gets a chance toi dry out

      indeed extend its life for only the worst of the stink IMO

      good luck

          Hello Corogold you will get the hang of it after the first couple grows or maybe you'll just do great with your first indoor grow. Either way good to hear from you. Outdoor is up and running in the states

        I run my 24/7 right from the start. it's main purpose is to pull fresh air, full of co2, air into the tent, and pull out the co2 depleted air. mine is veritable speed,so I run it at half speed to start, and as the plant grows, i gradually increase the speed.

          My filter is always attached to my fan and the fan comes on when it hits 80 in veg and 24/7 during late flower due to odor. If you wanted to attach/detach as odors dictated, absolutely. A good filter should last several years.

            Is it setup correctly to what you can see in pics. My temps 24c and humidity is 55%. This is without my inline fan and carbon filter turned on so what i can gather i should remove carbon filter and save till needed correct.

                I been told you want that negative pressure when the sides suck in a little.
                I would (& do) have 2 oscillating fans blowing on the plants & 2 exhaust fans in each tent.

                  Hello there fella and your tent looks great. Really once you get the lights figured out with height that your plants tolerate and keep the temps. and air flow at decent level your gonna love it. Autos love that light and we know you got skills Lots of drainage holes in the plastic pots and keep us posted. Best of luck
