I recently added a couple of small humidifiers in my veg tent. It was so dry in there, it was having a negative affect on my plants. My plants are much happier now.
But my carbon filter canister on the other hand, isn’t at all happy. Within a week of adding the humidifiers, my exhaust flow has diminished quite a bit. I think it’s the filter, I already have a replacement on hand so I’ll be testing that out probably tonight.
I’ve just been using water straight from the tap. My tap water is pretty good but there is definitely some mineral content. My plants don’t mind it, so there’s no way I’m going to start buying bottled water just for the humidifiers.
My question is, how much filtration is enough. I’m debating whether to get one of those inline RV water filters (single or triple?) or whether I should go with a small RO.
I have a 55 gallon rain barrel in my grow room which is currently unused. If I had to go full RO I might use it to catch some of the “waste” water to use on my plants.
What do y’all think?
