    I am in an apartment so I am trying to totally minimize odor.

    I want to try an ozone generator for my 6x6x9ft closet with 20 plants under 1000W HPS.

    I will be using a carbon can filter and 440CFM fan attached to that.

    I was going to exhaust air through the light hood (6") out into the bedroom (15'x12') and have the Ozone generator in line with the exhaust from the light then have the can filter sitting in the room.

    My questions are :

    1: Would it be better if I duct the can filter directly inline with the ozone generator ? Will this hurt the carbon in the can ?

    2: should I instead exhaust into the room for mixing and have the can filter running in the room but not directly connected to the ozone/light hood exhaust ?

    3: should I instead exhaust out of the closet then straight through the can fliter THEN through the ozone generator then into the room for mixing.


    Also any advice on Ozone generators in general - I was thinking a 6" Big Blue for these 20 plants.

    I run mine for 5 minutes day, it totally destroys odor, hands down the best. what I do is put a fan in the middle of the room to hit where ozone is coming out from, and set my window fan to blow outside of my window and at that same time I set my 600 mg/h Ozone Generator for five minutes, and I come back in 10 minutes, best part! No smell what so ever! not even the ozone smell because the window fan blows everything outside while the middle fan disperses everything to window, great invention, and the best part my family nor I has been sick or have felt sick. Keep in mind my ladies are in my closet in my bedroom. so I sleep in the room where I set ozone , like I said, I ozone once a day, it works for me, my two plants were really stinking, ozone works for me.

    Thanks Tony - sounds good.

    What size/type generator are you using ?

    Keep in mind I have 20 plants not 2.

    Hey Pat and Tony thanks for the good info again-

    I was actually thinking about the "Big Blue" units - 4" or 6" inline like here http://www.igrowhydro.com/detail.aspx?ID=5352

    But that CAP OZN looks like it puts out just as much mg/hr as the $400 bIG bLUE unitso I will keep shopping. I was planning to put the generator inside of a duct coming from the room and letting the duct run for 25'(for mixing) before passing through a carbon can filter finally.

    Thanks again

    OK thats hard core!! Note the OZN-1 is long and rectangular and can be placed inside your existing ducting. The manufacturer suggests that. Much less footprint. One thing too, if the OZN-1 does not suit you, they sell easily on e-bay.

    Uboats generator looks perfect if your just concerned with the immediate area.

    thanks pat-
    yeah I already have ducting to vent the closet into a bedroom area so I was thinking just lay that OZN1 up inside of it right where the duct leaves the light hood the add a 25 ft length of addl duct after that so the ozone and stink can get really mixed up then run that through the can.

    I am concerned with the immediate area - the non-immediate area and everything else- I need no-stink, no-where, no-how...

    i bought mine on ebay for 70$, i will post post pictures of my ladies and ozone gen. tomorrow, my plants are flowering and are smelling more and more, so i put ozone right outside my closet and ran it for 2 minutes now stink is gone, no smell what so ever for at least 3-4 hours, now im running it 2 x a day.
    i left them positive feedback cause the ozone gen. does work, plus i come to find out drinking ozone water helps against cancer.
    ps. they say ozone is made by lighting and waterfall ,if its made by both then all plant life near or around waterfalls 7 lighting would be dead ? and all the pictures i see near waterfall and lighting stricken areas are of flurshing plant life and trees, waterfall produce heavy amounts of ozone, especilly waterfalls day in and day out.. and when lighting stikes where it may, but it will burn a hole in ground but flowers and tree remane healthy? i know alot of people give ozone a bad rap but i think its slaes men trying to keep you so you keep buying carbon filters, the money is in the comeback.
