Phat filter


Active Member
Hi guys,

I have a general question about a Carbon Filter. I didn't think it was a totally ridiculous question, but never the less I haven't found an answer from Google and the Phat support website.

Basically what I wanted to know is is it OK to have that filter sitting on top of the cupboard laying on it's side with the inline attached. I was advised by the hydro shop shop and a friend that I couldn't it's not good for them. What I don't get is I've seen heaps of setups where the filter is either hanging or lying on the side. What's your thoughts?

I cannot have it upright on top of the cupboard because of height and I cannot cut a hole in the ceiling because I'm renting. But I've heard you get better results if it's higher than the grow room.

Thanks in advance

It would be better to hang it horizontally inside your grow box which will also reduce the amount of duct for better ventilation as well as stealth. I really don't think that laying the filter on it's side is going to do anything to it. It is just small pieces charcoal inside it.

Thanks for the idea I think that would look heaps stealth too.

But wouldn't that create about 50% more heat?
