    You could do all the mad scientist numbers but I'm guessing it will work OK. I'd use it as an exhaust fan and let air get pulled into tent this will draw heat out rather than just pushing it around inside the tent.

    I still think just an exhaust fan with a fresh air intake. What size is the fan.

    No, sorry, that will not exhaust the tent.

    Depending on the lighting you'll likely need a 6" blower.

    Blowing cool air in also works when you hit a 'wall' of venting outward, but those duct fans cannot handle much back pressure (ie carbon scrubbers).

    I think he means when you hit a wall and can't vent outward. I was planning on using one for my starter tent. That or a cheap range hood. I may use it (the little tent) for a drying rack though either way I have to vent.

    Eventually you reach a point of suction that you're just pulling in the sides of the tent and it's not getting any cooler.

    That's when you'll find that it's far more effective to add another blower facing inward, rather than another pulling out.

    Or you could increase passive intake opening to allow sufficient air to enter. Not trying to be argumentative but I'm cheap (no choice) so I'm always looking to spend less. That's a nice big tent so Shad's right. Here's how I do a scientific test...I get in the tent and turn the fan on...if I don't pass out there's lots air. lol

    Hey Shad, I've definitely observed that. My home made tent with Velcro seems was too annoying to close and the temp seemed to stay the same whether it was on medium or high.

    nice tent jam,,,myself i never used a intake fan on my tent just 6" exhast on sspeed control,, and always passive intake ,just a piece of 6" ducting to the window or were ever you get your cold air works fiine..if ever i need more air i open a bottom vent a bit, never in flower tho,,latley since im in veg and the lights are on 24/7 i dont even shut the tent..

    i say best bet is toss a liht in there and a exhaaust seal er up and let er rip.. like nohib says..test your temps, it will give you a good idea if you need more intake or exhast...

    peace jam

    Actually JaySun I was serious, but I had a moment there. I suffer from chuckleosis. lol

    Your tent is 144 sq ft (minus all the mass you install) so you have a complete air change every two minutes. But as Shad pointed out these fans aren't very powerful so make sure your intake is sufficient.

    sorry all for questions maybe should have done more reading before i jumped into this
    That's what TY is about Brother and that's what you're doing now...reading. lol

    Sure "it will work", provided you build it properly, and given that it's a hydroponic setup it would produce well but require more skill than pots of soil.

    Have you done hydro before? I ask simply because it requires more maintenance (and monitoring) than, say, an organic grow with sphagnum would (you can do organic hydro as well, I have no experience but perhaps someone here does).

    med-man's tables are NFT, if I remember correctly. You can take a look at his garden if there are no reports of NFT grows elsewhere in the forums.

    What ya need to know Jam. I built one a few yrs ago and it worked great but it's not for me, I don't like all my eggs in one basket so to speak.

    never done hydro before but im doing alot of reading on it and so far i like what i read..the nft way of growing sparked my interest sense i already have the 4 inch pipes and all..my question about this type of growing is providing oxygen to my water what i understand is the water flows out of the holding tank and around my 4 inch pvc pipes using a 220 gallon a minute pump and back into the same holding tank..i guess when the water falls back into my holding tank thats what supplies oxygen? been reading a lot on this subject and never has it said i need airriator stone i plan on buying me a digital ph meter that reads temps and ph at all times im hopeing to use organic nutes well what do yall think?
