blocking out light on a dwc
    #774580 - 03/31/15 05:27 PM (2 years, 25 days ago)

Im setting up my tub for a dwc. I bought a dark gray tub, but light penetrates thru a bit. Was thinking on lining it with a black trash bag or something. Any ideas?

you can use tin foil over the netted pots and have some sort of fabric/cloth hanging over the lid if there is light getting in where the lid meets the tub. I wouldn't recommend lining the inside with a plastic bag because it will trap water in between the tub and the liners potentially leading to stagnet nasty water.

If you mean that the tub isn't quite dark enough then you can use a liner on the outside but I personally would use black duct tape (gorilla tape preferably)

It's not a permanent thing I used it for almost two weeks before I painted the inside of my box flat white

Thanks for all the advise. I really like the Panda film, its just expensive. I should be going live pretty soon. So hopefully one or two of these should work.  BTW, where to get panda film locally?
