Important Safety Information
Getting the most from your lights:
SunLite T-8 Fluorescent bulbs are 20% more energy efficient than coventional grow lights. They last up to 4,000 hours longer, and perform better over time -- even after burning for 10,000 hours, they retain 95% of their original output. They also contain less mercury; that's good for the environment. And SunLite T-8 bulbs use quiet electronic ballasts with no annoying buzz.
- When the ends of a fluorescent light tube darken, it means that the light is aging. Light output from an old tube can be less than half that of a new tube. Replace the light tube when this darkening occurs.
- An accumulation of dust and dirt can dramatically reduce the amount of light your plants receive. Be sure to clean your fluorescent tubes monthly with a soft dry cloth.
- T-8, 32-watt fluorescent light tubes can provide many years of use (up to 24,000 hours); however, when it comes time to dispose of light tubes, please do so responsibly at your nearest waste recycling center.
