Did you contact BallastWise for a replacement? The VHO
ballasts I bought from them have a 3 yr warranty.
How are you liking the Phoenix bulbs? (FWIW, they put out less PAR than the 175w Iwasaki 15k bulbs I use.)
He may be interested in the new multi wattage digital ballasts coming out in January that can control almost any wattage bulb/type bulb out there with one ballast.
I like the Phoenix bulbs much better with the icecap ballasts. With the ballastwise ballast they were way to blue and dull, now they have less of a blue hugh but enough to highlight everything nicely. I'm going to contact them to get a replacement then sell them. I'm not to happy with the size of the hole that blew through the casing of the one.
I saw your Iwasaki bulbs in action on your thread and they sure do a great job. Where did you get them and can I get them in the 250 watt DE variety?
