Seattle, WA, April 7th, 2019, Active Grow, the sustainable horticultural lighting manufacturer has published a video online that shows how to switch out your old T5 HO fixture ballast for a new one that works with Active Grow T5 HO Horticultural Lamps.
Why would you change out your T5 HO ballasts?
1) Ballasts don’t last forever (10-15K hours for a good one) so in order to keep using your existing fixture you can just purchase a new replacement ballast that is cheaper than a new fixture.
2) In order to use new T5 HO LED lamps that require electronic ballasts to run. To check what ballasts are compatible with Active Grow T5 HO Horticultural Lamps please click the link here.
What you need for the installation:
1: T5 HO Fixture
2: T5 HO Lamps
3: T5 HO Replacement Ballast(s)
5: Wire trimmer / cutter
6: Twist on wire connectors
*NOTICE* NOT ALL T5 HO BALLASTS AND FIXTURES ARE THE SAME SO BEFORE INSTALLATION MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE THE REFLECTOR TO CHECK WHAT TYPE OF BALLASTS WORK WITH YOUR FIXTURE AS BALLASTS ALSO COME IN DIFFERENT SIZES. MOST BALLAST REPLACEMENTS ARE AVAILABLE ON AMAZON FOR LESS MONEY THAN A WHOLE NEW FIXTURE.
*NOTICE* IF YOU HAVE A T5 HO FIXTURE WITH 2 OR MORE BALLASTS INSIDE THE SAME INSTALLATION RULES APPLY.
