    Exactly what I need! I'll be building one this week (the bucket style). We'll put it through a torture test in my rodent room. If it can control the smell in there it will be worth it's weight in gold! The building is 7ft x 9ft with a 7ft ceiling, and houses around 2000 rodents!

    Is this the same kind of filter since the site that was originally listed no longer sells them?

    Re: Carbon Air Purifier - DIY

    Not sure if anyone reads this thread still or not, but I was wondering about using charcoal briquettes for this? I looked around online and although it's clear you wouldn't use it in aquarium filtration, it appears that it's commonly used by people to control odors in garages and storage sheds. I know carbon is relatively cheap when used for this DIY kind of thing as opposed to a prefab filter, but the amount of carbon to fill a 2gallon bucket is still a bit more than I would want to pay sadly.
