    Default New fan

    Hey everyone. I’m looking to get a new fan, I don’t need a more powerful one just a new one because it’s gotten very quiet and my temps are slowly rising. So will need a new one, just wondering what brand is the best quality for price? Only specification I know already is it’s a 6” but I’m not sure where to find it’s speed or anything... I’m not a massive expert on fans, I acquired this one for free second hand so I have no idea about prices. Cheers

    go for a 6'' L1 Ruck, had mine 3-4 years and it's still running strong,
    will remove 760m3/hour - The L1 means Large, the standard 6'' will remove 470m3/hour

    the difference in price is £82 for low speed, £86 for the large version,

    Cheers though bud, I’ve written it down in my notes for my ‘shopping list’ lol. Already got those LED boards by invisisun? I’m not 100% sure that’s their name but I know they sponsor THCtalk, although they are super pricey... maybe one day lol

    if ur using an led heat wont be your issue, could probably use a 4'' and still be in the 25c-28c range,
    i use a 600w hid, without proper ventilation id easily hit 38c lol

    it's definitely pricey but having a good environment for your girls is priceless
    control the environment, keep a good watering/feeding schedule and the battle is already over hehehe

    I’m currently using a 400w hps, I’ve got a light box for helping keep my temps down a little more.
    I know if I got an LED I wouldn’t need a fan like that but I get the feeling it’ll be a fair while before I get a strong enough LED to replace my hps... May even go for a 600w LED, because my limit for my tent is really heat. I got told in my local hydro shop that a 600w hps was too big for my 2.5ft x 2.5ft x 6ft tent. I’m not sure though as they have a reputation for selling people things they don’t need

    that's all any grow shop does, they want more profit, nothing more
    you want a minimum of 50watts per square foot, but 75w is optimal

    your fine with your 400w, the only difference with the led is they need more hight clearance than a 400w
    but ur tent is 6' so you should be good
