    I was mistaken. Its an online air filter for intake I think.

    The problem is having a fan /filter in a small flower room is a bad idea IMO, when I was growing in the loft I would push the air though the filter, because the fan/ filter takes up too much space(height), you could lose 1.5ft if your flower room is 6ft high, That's not fun, take the pot size and the space for the lights, don't have much room for the plants

    No but it may do your fan. If your gonna run with long duct runs look to try and keep them straight as possible, more bends their are extractor efficiency will become lesser as the fan has to work harder to do same job.

    There are systems where air direction through a filter truly matters, fortunately grow tent exhausts arent one of them
    Thanks for your reply.
    I may of been unclear or I'm not understanding properly which is on me.
    As regards the pushing and pulling and the pre filter becoming a post filter.
    Wouldn't that be the case if I was having the fan on the inside and connecting the carbon filter outside the tent via ducting.
    I was planning on keeping the carbon filter inside the tent.

    Im sorry, i get to rambling.
    Keeping the filter inside the tent and the fan outside would be fine. You wouldnt have to worry about changing your prefilter around. Just be mindful of fan direction when you install. I hung duct and installed commercial units for 6 years, and i did it the last time i tinkered with my exhaust lol


    There are several ways you can do it. Ive always liked to put anything i can outside of the tent, to save space and keep any unnecessary load off the frame.

    No mate we are all idiots lol. Your post clearly states what you wanted haha.

    And yes if you add a short bit of ducting between filter and fan you can have fan outside of tent.
    I actually have all 3 of my tents set up in the same way.
