    Default Always check the ducting

    So everything's gone pretty smoothly so far until this morning when I noticed the smell of weed before I'd even had a joint, closer I got to the groom worse it got. Bit of investigating and found the smell was coming out the extractor ducting with the expelled air. Expecting a long stint searching for the problem I made a coffee and had a joint, as you do before any crisis, and got started. Whats the first damn thing I see

    So at least it saved hours of messing about, I'd moved the light up before beddy byes and obviously ripped it off. This grows been ever changing that's why it looks so tight and scrappy.

    It's been long enough now to know it's fixed it, like for most people smell just aint an option

    Duct tape is one of the best things on earth. If its not hot enough to melt it then it can probably fix it, even if only temporarily

    Fuckin did it again didn't I. Got a makeshift Y junction on the duct until tuesday. Came downstairs about 3am for a joint, got a whiff of weed from the groom but couldn't do a lot. Got up about 6am and I could still smell it, bit stronger though. Sooo decided the problem was the 2nd tent wasn't getting enough pull even on a higher setting so the smell was leaking out. Moved the plants upstairs, tidied up both tents, moved ballasts outside tent, swapped led to the big tent where the primary filter is so the near ready to chop plants that stink can go...good cple hours work. Turn everything back on, plants down and in their new places, fan on 2/5. Come back down 10 mins later and it stinks, so turn the fan to 3/5 and leave it another 10 mins. Now it's smelling worse, neighbours calling the old bill kinda smelly if it goes on for long. I'm panicking, standing at the tent door wondering if I should just take them all bk upstairs again...then it hits me don't it, shoulders drop, reach up to feel the gap between the fan and " Y " junction...big gaping hole lol, 3 strips of duct tape, fan on 1/5, no smell at all

    Note to self...AGAIN...CHECK THE FUCKIN DUCTIN
