Do you get less noise and vibrations by hanging that vortex fan by bungi cord?

Way less. Like almost non existent compared to other hangers!

Speaking of ghetto I couldn’t find a bracket for this fan so X marks the spot!

Very much so and especially now that the bearing is going and has been for about 3 years. :smiley: If I anchored it to the concrete wall it would be OK but I want the flexibility to change it’s position as needs be for different grows I do.

I wish it was a Vortex fan but it’s a no-name unit. It’s got at least 10 years on it so for a POS it’s been worth it. But I’ve been lusting after a Vortex S Series 8" for a while to have extra for my grow room expansion.

Getting a big raise next week with my old age pension. From $800/mth disability to $2400! Be living the life of Riley now me lad. :wink: I’m at my sister’s in Chilliwack, BC since yesterday. Went fishing for coho on the beautiful river of the same name but only had an hour before dark and went home skunked. Blew $150 on a new rod and reel and with some tackle and licenses was around $250. 8 day licence then $36 for another one.

I’ll have to go post this in my grow thread. lol

:peace:

That’s awesome! I’ve been trying to figure out a way to quiet down my exhaust fans and that looks like it could be the winning ticket :grin:

Here’s a duct muffler I made out of chicken wire, a 6”to 4” reducer, an old cushion and leather from a couch I stripped. Works well. Very ghetto.

How much do those fans go for? What is the name of it? I need a cheap fan for my new tent. I don’t think the ones I have, are good.

It’s called an inline fan. There’s tons on Amazon etc, I’m not sure of pricing tbh.

Thanks. I wasn’t sure if the name. I found a 4inch for 19.99. My text is 2x2. So should be good enough. Thanks! Merry Christmas :christmas_tree:

20 bucks? That seems suspiciously cheap lol, got a link? There are fans called ‘inline booster fans’ that look similar but don’t have the same pressure… they’re no good for our purposes

Even PC style fans can be good for a smaller space like yours.

Here it is. I don’t have the cash yet. Just window shopping and it seems like a good value. A lot of units sold.
