The Gator Filter and Challenges

We continue our look into the Green Gator Filter, and what makes it different.

When GGF launched, we knew we had an up hill battle ahead of us. The industry was growing and so were the claims – at least when it comes to filtration..  Much like “Jack’s magic bean’s” the tales of mystical carbon from far corners of the world made for great stories and better marketing. But Alas.. Sadly in the real world there is no such thing as magic carbon, regardless of where it comes from..  The magic associated with effective odor control is understanding the challenge, applying the correct media types, designing to operational environments, applying the latest and best available technology and… and..

Basically it’s all about the science.

The challenges –

Performance,

need I say more? In the indoor growing environment failure is not an option. Researching and fully understanding the unique molecular challenges ( the smells) was the first thing that needed to occur. We needed to identify the unique characteristics associated with the indoor growing environment and develop a solution. This solution, as it turns out, is not simply one media type, it is several blended together to provide the absolute best possible efficiency and life.

Size,

is everything when it comes to a product, too big and a gardener would need to get help to install, too small and it doesn’t work effectively.  Luckily with our unique method of bonding media, we are able to create a filter that has no need for metal siding and reduces overall length

Design,

was the next hurdle; we had to make something that people could easily add to. We came up with a way for one end of the filter to fit into the other. You can effectively double your Media weight by attaching two filters together. Not only does this allow our system to grow, but it also simplifies buying. Our competitors have hundreds of different sizes, media weights, CFM requirements, shapes, inline filters, etc. We have ONE filter, no over complications.

Finally we needed to tackle

Usability,

we talked to gardeners, we listened and asked a lot of questions. In the end it was the simple things that we were able to incorporate that made the biggest difference: Built in hanging tabs on both the filter and collar. Easy to replace pre filter and integrated anti microbial filter. Quick connect collar. A flat edge so the filter wont roll off a table… 

How ever you need to get the job done, we wanted to make it easy to do and make it WORK.

We will continue to bring you more insight into our filters over the coming weeks. Keep an eye out here and on our social media for more information.

Happy Growing,

We just got some more info from TheDawg and also some new images.

“Check It. It Took Mr Longer To Move 2 Plants Out The Way Than It Did To Move My Green Gator Filter. I Now Have About 5ft Less Ducting” The Dawg – RIU.org

We love hearing that we are helping growers maximize space and also time. If you have an install and comments you would like to see posted, please contact us with details.

Review and Install from Michigan (Update 4/3/14)

Just got our latest review in, here is what Big D had to say

“I just moved into a new home in a residential area. I set up my grow rooms and was outside shoveling snow when I realized it isn’t like the old house in the country where odor wasn’t an issue. My neighbors would have picked it up in a heartbeat. I put a Green Gator filter in and went outside. There is absolutely no more odor. I put my nose right next to my vent and I could not smell it. Looks to be a perfect solution.”
