Default Sealed Rooms

Anybody here running sealed rooms? or tried it?
Introducing CO2, seems to solve a lot of issues.

yes my room is sealed. I use a 4 burner CO2 generator. I run at 2,000 ppm.

Yep, but I run mine at 1500 ppm.

Neither of you appear to have grow logs going on. Couple of quick ones?
Something I haven't found an answer for... why do I see carbon filtres in these rooms?
Sealed means no smell out.
and plant oxygen gets burned up by co2 thing's flame?
seems elegant, any caveats?
I hate venting warm air out a sewer pipe in winter

smell gets out even in a sealed room, every time you open the door. carbon filters just help with the overall problem of smell containment.

Yes Kraven, but you are using vpd, whether you know it or not. I am forcing the stoma open with sound and force feeding CO2 every hour when the lights are on.

I don't know if this happens to any of you guys, but if I go into a grow room that isn't filtered well, the pungent odors get so thick that it will give me a sinus headache. When I harvest, I turn my exhaust fan up as it gets really thick when you're chopping and trimming. The first time a buddy helped me do a harvest, he told me that he was more stoned from handling and smelling the buds than from smoking.

I bet you have to be pretty careful with sealed space and co2 because a mistake could cause you to take a permanent nap if that co2 gets too high

When the trimmers come, the room is empty and CO2 is turned off. When I am working in the room and the CO2 is on, it has never been a problem.

The CO2 stops 30 mins before lights off and starts 30 mins after lights on, so I figured out that 3 hours before lights on I could work till lights on and it would get the ppm's into the low 2000's and I wouldn't get sick. So yea 3 hour max in the Bunker or you will start feeling it, 4 and your pushing it
are you saying that you're exhaling raised the maintained 1200ppm in there to 4000? that doesn't sound right but I hope it is
I often sit in my rooms reading, cleaning, or fiddling with stuff, I have a gas water tank and furnace next to the rooms
must be at least 1200 when I'm down there
anybody got a meter? how much can human generate sitting in a room?

I like the sealed room for more than just the CO2, no vent hassles and I want to try 3 rooms with multi-split AC/heat, seems nice and neat
the cans surprise me though, didn't think I'd need those

IDK my CO2 monitor doesn't register much above ambient levels with 4 trimmers in the room. I run a 3.5 Ton mini split for 1 room and it just barely makes it during the summer.

Dang! Kraven you need to get some fresh air ventilation in there when trimming. Don't want nobody passing out and getting a pair of scissors in their eyes.

I have my room encased in rubber, not much gets out and it doesn't take long to elevate CO2 levels.

In rooms that tight, I bet you don't have to smoke anything on trimming days. A couple hours of trimming and breathing the vapors and you come out toasty

Framing was sealed to slab and once dried in it was spray foam insulated with 3 inches worth of sound deadening flame retardant sealant in the walls / ceiling. It's not completely air tight but pretty close. Also I trim just prior to lights on so the whole time I am trimming the plants are in the dark cycle and are not using CO2. My entire grow space is less than 1200 sq feet so it simply does not take but a couple of hours of me working in there to get the CO2 levels really high. In hind sight it would be nice to build an addition to the grow shed and that would be my work space, since I only have a 4' x 11' space to trim. That will come in time, and will also give me one more door between the grow and the outside. I also run a 2 ton mini split and it just covers it, I really need to go to a 2.5 ton or 3 ton....also had to add a second dehum.Peace
Hey Kraven, maybe I'm just really high but, my space is approximately 400 sq ft; 20 x 20. If yours is 1200 sq ft; 20 x 60, then 2 5 ton a/c units would be necessary.
