Don’t think you can replace the charcoal without opening it up. I cut an approx 1” hole in the centre of the metal mesh at the bottom, emptied the charcoal and filled with charcoal pellets I purchased on Amazon . It’s a bit fiddly getting the old out and new in. Sealed the hole with a Canadian toonie and RTV. Put a piece of used charcoal fabric/mesh from my home air purifier, the W shaped retainer and reinstalled it. You can also buy open cellfoam used for window air conditioners for under the retainer. Really didn’t notice any difference, but can sleep at night knowing I’m capturing those rogue fumes 😀Is it possible to replace the media in the charcoal canister without cutting it open? Found one that is in very good condition that's complete with 0 rust. It flows air well but the filter for the media is a bit plugged up on the bottom.
Hi, I’ll try to attach a few pics. I used charcoal pellets from Amazon, based on the attached article.Good idea Craig. So current plan of attack is to cut a hole in the center empty the contents replace with fresh charcoal place a new screen on the inside to retain the charcoal and then I assume the filter is held in by the clip on the bottom? Sadly I think the current contents of the canister have formed into one giant block as I can't hear anything moving when shaken.
