Philips T8 UV Tubes
This is one of the most integral parts of your overall filtration system, yet we often forget to maintain it as time goes by. You should replace your UV tube in your UV unit once a year, in the spring, if possible. Although the lamp may still burn, it no longer emits the correct amount of UV radiation to function optimally.
Depending on your UV unit, you may need an energy efficient PLS lamp, which has two pins at one end. As well as the PLS replacement tubes we sell PLL tubes which have 4 pins at one end.
Or you may need the T8 lamps which have two pins at each end, these units are used in the Evolution Aqua, TMC and Yamitsu Algae Master range of units.
Please ensure that you buy the right replacement lamp. If you are unsure on which replacement lamp you need, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Be sure to clean the quartz glass of the unit carefully before installing the new lamp to optimise the light transmission.
