I posted this on the FB group as well… apologies to those in both groups…
About to install inline fan today. No question it’s the thing to do. (Edit: 6" version) Planning to add a “Y” for the compact filter. Only reason I got the filter was for leather and acrylic, which both stink. The question is, with the inline fan, do I even need the filter at all? I’ve read good things about both items, but not about either or… (I’ve read, of course, that the filter is hella expensive to use often.)
I will have a fairly short run, about 2 feet to the inline fan and then elbow out of the house immediately after the fan. (The Y would go in that 2 feet before the fan, and the filter would be less than 2 foot away from that on the floor. About 3-4 feet total to the filter, or out the exhaust port.)
And to be clear, I wouldn’t be running them at the same time. Filter only for acrylic and leather.
Any leather and acrylics forgers out there with the inline fan? Is it gettin’ the stink out well enough?
What say you all?
