    Buy cheap buy twice mate, good extractor gonna cost you over £50 good filter over £60. Extraction can cost as much as a good lighting set up lol, even more. Fans, ducting, filter, extractor, all adds up. Get a proper one next time mines lasted 8 years! Still pukka

    what were you expecting for a £14 filter though,
    as macky and countless others have said before 'buy cheap, buy twice'

    a good filter/fan kit will last you years vs spending £14 every few weeks to make do and that'll probably cost more in the long run

    unfortunately for us all good filters aren't cheap - but they make things 100x better

    If you are gonna do this proper mate, you need a 4 inch rvk fan, or poss a rhino or ruck fan. No other fan is in that league. A 4 inch rvk fan will last years. Proper extraction means bigger and better quality yields.

    Filter... the go to is a 4 inch rhino pro NOT hobby. You will get at least 18 months out of a rhino pro filter. A proper filter means no one sniffing you out.

    Why risk either of those things bro?
