Air Movement, Air Filtration, Heat and Odor Control

  • Dual industrial grade carbon filters keep those dank odors inside the cabinet. These activated carbon filters are custom made for Ready Steady Hydro and will make even the stinkiest grows odor free. The carbon is a consumable and can be replaced when necessary;
  • Powerful yet quiet dual exhaust fans provide 220CFM of air exchange with the exterior of the cabinet, completely refreshing the air inside the cabinet 11 times per minute;
  • A fully adjustable, two speed internal circulation fan delivers up to 160 CFM (the lower setting is 100CFM) of air movement inside the cabinet. This is important for your plants to grow strong stems and branches to support the weight of all that bud.

Grow system – How does it work?

The Sunrunner hydroponic grow box is a dual compartment system that allows you to have plants at all stages of growth at the same time. You can start off with clones or seedlings in the cloning chamber and then, when they are ready to flower, place them in the main chamber for budding. With a little planning this system can easily supply you with a constant supply of your favourite herbs.

They have fitted both compartments out with cutting edge hydroponics systems to make this grow box an extremely productive space.

  • Operates on Deep Water Culture (DWC) system that provides highly oxygenated nutrient solution directly to your plants’ roots;
