How Does the Rhino Hobby Filter Work?

Hydroponics filters are an essential component to maintain cleanliness in the system. The filters exist in two categories. The micro-filters clean out all dissolved chemicals and impurities from the water source. The other type of filters helps to prevent clogging of pipes and nozzles in the irrigation system.

Rhino Hobby Filters are a preferred because they are cheaper than the Rhino Pro Filter. Here is a detailed outline of these filters and how they can help you achieve better results with your hydroponics. 

How Does Rhino Hobby Filter Work? 

The filter system works by use of granulated carbon named Australian RC412. The carbon attracts and holds any dust, debris, and bad odour. The activated carbon used in these filters has a large surface area thanks to its porous nature. Therefore, any liquid passing through it is purified and deodorized. 

The air purification process of the carbon filters occurs through the use of a detachable fan extractor. The extractor is bought separately and comes in different sizes depending on the duct size of the filter. Ideally, the air passes through the filters where all large particles and bad smells get absorbed. The air is then passed to the primary filter and to the outside through the fan extractor. 

Maintenance of the Hobby Filter 

The carbon filter has a lifespan of about 12 months of full utilization. To realize the best use of your carbon bed and to ensure even supply of the carbon in your hydroponic grow room, turn the neck of the filter every 6-12 weeks. Turning the neck of the filter increases the longevity of the product such that it wears out evenly.
