How often should I replace the pre-filters for my Can-Lite Carbon Filters?

What is the purpose of using a pre-filter with my Can-Lite Carbon Filter?

Yes, pre-filters can be used as intake filters. Simply pinch one end closed and put it over your inlet fan or duct. This will ensure all incoming air is free from dust and bugs.

How do I know when it's time to replace my pre-filter?

Signs that it's time to replace your pre-filter include reduced airflow, excess dust or dirt on the filter, or increased odors in your growing area. Regularly inspect your pre-filter and replace as needed to maintain optimal performance.

Will using a pre-filter affect the performance of my Can-Lite Carbon Filter?

Using a pre-filter will actually improve the performance and lifespan of your Can-Lite Carbon Filter by preventing airborne particles from clogging the filter's pores. This allows for better airflow and greater filtration efficiency.
