Burned out ballast

Reviewers Rating Below Average

Posted: 2/6/2011 from BRADENTON, FL UNITED STATES

Experience Level: Intermediate

Comments: It appears that a Super Actinic bulbs I received with this shipment was defective and burned out my balast. There is a loose piece rolling around in both of the Super actinic bulbs that is not present in any other bulbs. The ballast has been in use the last 3 years with no problems but with the new bulbs burned out in one day. At this point I think there is a problem with the UV super actinic bulbs. I am giving 2 stars as I have had good results with UV bulbs in the past. Lets hope this is a short term issue with quality.

Comments: UVL as always, an excellent product. Gives the tank great color and a beautiful look. I like this blue color more than the actinics themselves, but still using in combination with the actinics.
