Good Day folks, I was at a friends house and his buddy gave him an entire hydro setup and I scored two 750 cfm inline fans. These will work just as easily as squirrel cage blowers right?

Absolutely. I use an in-line fan on my flow box

I like that, it's pretty mush what I had in mind.

How many CFM?

Thank you very much for that. I was a bit worried but figured I would make it work. I know that some inline fans don't push quite as hard as they say and static pressure is an issue but at 750 I should be able to figure something out. I have the carbon filter for both but don't know if I should use it as a pre filter or if I should just remove it and do what you did with yours and completely encase the whole thing. I think I was just excited to see the carbon filter and it says it filters most harmful debris and chemicals but I'm not reducing the smell of pot.

Yeah I think the carbon filter would reduce it too much. Even the filter I have on the back of mine is overkill, just need a filter to trap larger pieces of dust to prolong the HEPA a bit. 

It's nice not getting any tams, lol

Good luck on a build, you'll be glad you made one!

Thank yous guys for the help. I can't wait to get away from the SAB, I love em' for being affordable but after having broken my back twice, it's too much to work in a box for more than 15 minutes.

Due to the weather we are finally experiencing here, I have found some issues around the house that need attention but I will have photos soon enough of my new flow hood.

      Hi I’ve recently just joined and I’m looking to start up growing some golden teachers I’m first off getting the grow kits but they seem abit to simple so after that I want to move on to something abit more complex and I just had a question, can you innoculate steralised grain bags and use a expandable twin chamber mushroom growing system? I understand they come with jars but I hear that it’s easy to contaminate and you don’t get a good enough yield so I was hoping to find a way to you the sterilised grain bags and to use the twin chamber but I’m unsure on how this could work and I can’t see anything on YouTube about it

      Oh awsome man! This has to be one of the coolest mushrooms I've ever seen out of a pot. Looks so yellow and fake I thought someone was playing a joke on me.
