How to Use the Grolux 600w Lamp:
Using a clean cloth to hold the lamp, screw the lamp into the E40 bulb-holder fitting of your reflector until it will turn no further. It is important that the Sylvania Grolux lamp is screwed very firmly into the holder. Failure to fit the lamp tightly will cause electrical arcing inside the holder between the centre connector and the solder contact on the lamp. This will usually melt the solder contact of the lamp and irreparably damage it. Connect your reflector cable to your 600 HPS ballast. The wattage of your ballast MUST match the wattage of the Sylvania Grolux lamp you are using or there will be a high risk of fires or equipment damage. Ensure the lamp is completely clean and free of dirt, grease and finger-prints etc. before switching on.
Warning: Once the Sylvania Grolux lamp is switched on it runs extremely hot. As with all high pressure sodium and metal halide lamps it is necessary to avoid touching the bulb with anything such as fingers or plants as this may cause severe burns or fires. In particular avoid sprays or liquids coming into contact with the lamp as this may cause premature failure or even an explosion. Also, always allow sufficient time to allow the lamp to cool down after switching off before removing it from the holder.
The Sylvania Grolux 600w HPS lamp is a great all-round, value-for money grow-lamp! As with all lamps the light output it produces will decrease with use over time. One stop grow shop recommends you replace your lamp regularly to maintain your garden efficiency.
