collapsable tables may help with the stooping and such......
you would be better off buying a burner than running a tank or multi tanks
if the room has an exhaust(other than the one that runs through the cool tube) how is it "air seal"
If you have a sealed room with Co2, and no exhaust or intake, doesn't that Co2 air get stale at some point? Because there will be no O2 coming into the room at all, isn't that somewhat bad for the plant environment?
Plants take co2 and break the carbon away, using it to build tissue. They release most of the o2 into their surroundings. I've seen it done on massive scale, and am scaling my small room according to that. There needs to be a ballance for it to work, but the range is broad from what I understand. There will be a way to vent air into it when I work. I'm not gonna suffocate.
Thankx for all the posts!!
Landragon how long does the co2 gen. last? Any maintenece besided filling up?
They last a long time. There is a failsafe that can go bad. It is a temp sensitive valve on the pilot light. You must allow it to heat up by pushing in while lighting for a minute. Once hot, gas flows. If pilot light goes out, it cools and shuts off supply. If it fails, it sticks shut not open so that's good. The burns itself must be wire brushed a couple times a year to keep oxygen ratios proper. As far as how long the gas lasts, in my room it will last four to six weeks, while a ten lb. co2 tank lasts one to two. Refils are much lighter and more subtle to the neighbors too.
your right panhead... passive venting is just as well as forced. However, you would get a slightly faster air exchange if you were to put a fan on your intakes. But alas, who has money to spend on making everything the best it could be?
big papa had a tutorial on building a sealed room at the old advanced site. i'm not sure if he posted it anywhere else, but it is a step by step "how to" and it was awesome!
Will check that out Silky Thankx!
Landragon, is there a better brand or does it matter on the burner?
Silky, cant find big papa sealed anywhere. Let me know if you can.
It's my first burner. Green air products have been around forever. There are some new water and air cooled brands that are pretty interesting. I have no experience with them.
Cool!! Thankx LD!! Will check it out! I hope the best for everyone!!! Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
try the couchlock cafe.
4 to 6 weeks? dan that's maad long. you ust have no leakage
All is sealed with caulk or gaskets. It is only 700 cubic feet of space.
