How do I use the BIG BLUE as a grow room scrubber to sterilize my space between grows?
Most growers will find the BIG BLUE works well for two applications: sterilizing your grow space between grows, and as part of a grow room exhaust system for controlling odor. To rid the grow room powdery mold, mildew and insects simply pair your BIG BLUE with an inline fan and timer. A 6in BIG BLUE will clean a 2600 cu ft grow space in under an hour. When using the BIG BLUE as a scrubber you can use a high static pressure, low cfm fan. Ozone works best when it can maintain a high concentration in an enclosed space, so shut off your exhaust and carbon filters. Circulating fans are helpful to leave on, if you have them. Generally we recommend running the BIG BLUE for a couple of extra hours just to make absolutely sure everything is killed. Give yourself enough time for the ozone to react and then decompose before you re-enter your space (an hour or two is usually sufficient). Use the “sniff test”; if you can’t smell the ozone in the air then you can be certain it’s safe to re-enter.
