viper cf

Post by jimmi2scoops » Wed Aug 07, 2019 1:42 pm

So i see quite a few of you guys have been using the viper carbon filter, well i`m looking to buy a new cf asap and have always used the rhino pro filters which ive never had any problems with smells in years of growing it`s generally on more or less constantly running for 2 years + sometimes and stink free. Now i know it`s said if it`s not broke don`t fix it but i`m a tight git and these viper filters are cheaper than the rhino pro, so with that in mind i got a question or few to ask you viper cf users

How long have you been using them now ?

does it stink proof the groom ?

Cheers guys. :)

I've heard nothing but good things about Viper CFs. I have heard of bad things about Rhino. Apparently the quality has dropped. I am thinking of getting a Viper when I need to change mine.

Always used to have a rhino pro then i started notice smell leaks as you might call them. I swapped to the 8" viper in my tent and never noticed any smells for the 2 grows i used it for. The only reason i did not use it further was that it would not fit in my cupboard. I brought a rhino hobby as quick fix at the time its been in there over 2 years and still no smell leaks, although i have noticed the temps get harder to control prob due to the amount of dust it has collected.

Im in the same boat as k bag, always used rhino pro but the last 2-3 years 1 after another has been failing far earlier than it should. Im also noticing smell leaks that then go away then come back. Im in the process of changing all my filters to viper.

I just can`t find any info about them online except a few shops up in northern cities on ebay who stock them, i mean it doesn`t make much difference if you guys are saying they bang on then that`s sound for me. But would ya know who makes them or is their a website to ganders at ? Cheers for speedy replies guys. :)

I`m liking sounds of the rhino hobby filter if you have had it 2 years @Kbag i think they are even cheaper than viper cf. Will decide on summink one way or another this week some time :)

I've had my Rhino for over 4 years and it's still going okay. Most of my grows don't stink, which probably helps.

Ive not used them Jimmy. But below is a YouTube vid in the new range of systemair silenced fans. Bloody pricey though. It's a good watch though as they are saying they will be fazing out our beloved system air RVK fans by 2020 if I remember correctly 😱

For £40 for a six inch i can not complain at all Jimmi. Maybe i just got lucky as they are only meant to last for a couple grows.

Or maybe that`s a sales ploy cus peeps botty`s get twitchy :idn: you do tend to see quite a few replacing filters after 2 or 3 grows that should have quite a few more grows left in them. Feck knows tbh but i don`t believe product marketing one bit these day i`d rather here it or see it from the horses mouth so to say.

Cheers guys. :thanks:

I've been using and recommending viper to a few people and they are all more than happy. I change mine every year because I am para now not because I have smell leaks. I hope you enjoy it Jimmi
