    DIY Odor Control Bucket

    Disclosure:
    I did not invent or create this Odor Bucket. I found it for sale on the Internet for $139.00 plus shipping. I call it -------'s because it is mine and I built it.

    Pot is going to stink and stink very stong too. Even in a cabinet or a closet behind closed doors, the smell or odor will spread all over the entire house. I have smelled my grow when I was outdoors, from inside the spare bed room closet.

    I do not grow with HID lights, I use CFLS and for that reason, I do not need to VENT the HEAT. And also, for that reason, I do not use a Carbon Odor Filter Scrubber. I do believe a Carbon Odor Filter Scrubber is best, but it will cost more than my DIY BUCKET.


    The pics tell the story, bit I start with lots of holes. My bucket and lid cost $5.00 from Walley World.








    I did the square holes with an electric Dremel Cutter, but a razor knife or heated knife blade will do the trick.

    I use ONA and prefer the fresh Linen Scent. I have used Febreeze too and it works good, but does not last as long. You can also use Pine Sol, but Pine Sol masks the odor, or covers it up. ONA really neutralizes it and eliminates it.And avoid the cheap ONA imitations, they do not work





    Either a 9 or 10 inch round fan (aka muffin fan) is used. They are only $8.95 from Walmart, and Lowes has them during the Winter Time.





    The 9 or 10 inch fan fits perfectly into the top of the bucket. If you use a smaller fan, I suggest you install it into the lid.



    I could have easily removed the stand from the fan, but it worked well with it, so I left it attached.





    The fan pulls the air and odor from the room into the bucket, and pushes it into the ONA Gel and water placed in the bottom of the bucket. The air escapes from the holes, but without the odor.

    I have tried cheap and expensive Ionizers, carbon filters, electric Febreeze filters, and they do not work well at all.
    I have tried charcoal and I have tried cheap smelly substitutes, but the ONA really, really works. I sometimes use the solid blocks but I like the chunks in liquid or the GEL best. I just add a little, like 1/6 of the big jar, and it lasts for weeks. I can dildute it with water or cat liter, to make it last even longer.

    I 've seen a computer fan on a 3 gallon bucket, but a 5 gallon bucket without the lid is only $4.

    AND, with 6 inches of water added in the bottom of the bucket, it increases the humdiity too.


    I would not recommend or suggest this, if it did not work and work very good too.

    I googled it and ordered it direct from ONA, but all Hydro Supply stores have it.

    So, in your experience, how large of a grow will this work for? Either square feet or plant number... i.e., how many plants do you have growing in your closet, and how big is it? Also, what purpose do the rectangular holes serve?

    For me, I had a spare bedroom, with a walk in closet, 24 inches deep, 10 feet log, 8 feet high ceiling, very full of 9 large plants, 4 of them over 50 inches tall. Yielded 18 ounces of dired manicured buds.

    The square holes? I just wanted to cut larger holes than the drill made, faster and easier than drilling, without weakening the sides or walls of the bucket. Adn I had a new never used power tool to try out.

    Olias,

    what size bucket and what size fan did you use?

    What ONA did you use?
    How much did you spend?
    How does it work for you?

    I have $4 in the bucket, (the lid was a dollar but i did not use the lid)
    $9 plus tax in the fan,
    and $19 in the ONA.
