    Seedling your statement is NONSENSE!
    Ive posted in response to this attitude previously.

    A 1000w costs about a 1.20 US/day to run in my area.

    Aircooling is really easy if you just put it all on paper.
    Draw out the plan and make a parts list.
    Then youll minimize trips to the store.
    for a 1000w youd probably want 2 265cfm blowers, one on the intake and one on the exhaust.


    Peace

    Thanks Khai I needed a good laugh, it cracks me up to get flamed over a harmless joke.

    Frankly I don't know what "attitude" your commenting on but I would think realistically even if I had not been joking it is a distinct possibility that a high intensity light might raise some eyebrows.

    I cant speak for where you live,however here in Ontario every 2nd week we have houses that are being raided for illegal grow operations allot of these are in some of the most affluent neighbourhoods.

    Personally I live in a Condo and I have packages and envelopes ( seeds, gemmae and supplies) being sent in from all over the world at the moment and I also have a 70 Wyatt HPS light that gives my bedroom a nice glow from outside. I would not be surprised if I get a knock one day.

    How do you think us with greenhouses feel? I certainly don't want them busting down the door to do a search b/c of "growlights" raising curiosity.

    If you feel you were being flamed Im sorry that you percieved it in that manner, it was not meant that way.
    A flame is a personal attack.

    Im fully aware of the situations in Canada.
    The people being busted are generally not running one lamp.
    They are usually idiots trying to run massive operations in their basement with people moving in and out all the time.
    The "Pot house" is quit prevelant in ontario.
    Your talking about a very different situation.

    If the year was 1980 i might tell some of you to worry. but its not now is it.

    I would be incredibly suprised if YOU get a knock some day.
    Im sure the police would love to bust you for your 70 watt HPS. LOMFL!

    Talk about making one laugh!

    Good Day
    Peace

    Just dropping in as a Mod to tell everyone to play nice. I know that this topic has not degenerated but there looks to be the potential if somebody took something the wrong way. I know that nothing here was meant as an attack I just want to make sure everybody else recognizes that too.

    And on a more humorous note, even people without HPS/MH systems can and do get searched. I had the cops stop by my place and ask to search because of all the fluorescent tubes I was running. Now granted they had just busted a guy next door and you could see al the tubes through the window. They were nice about it though and there has not been a problem since.

    I have one friend that was visited in 1982 by the DEA when he first got his greenhouse up and running.
    He is an avid Orchid grower so they got more than they bargained for, He gave them all plants and a quick lesson on how to care for them.
    Who knows whether they ever survived.

    Peace
