    QwikPure Ozone replacement lamps

    Hi, I have a QwikPure Ozone generator from Shasta. It's made by A&A, and the lamp is from American Ultraviolet I believe. It uses a T5 4 pole straight, single ended bulb, about 12" long. The number on the bulb is G18T5VH/4. This bulb seems difficult to find, even my local Shasta store has to order it, for $95 bucks.

    I have no problems with my pool, and I have no idea how long the ozone generator has not been working, which I suppose says something about how much I need one... Where is a good place to buy a replacement bulb? Or do I even bother? Did I waste my money one the ozone generator? My pool seldom has more than 2-3 people using it, and then only one or two days a week in season.

    TIA, Garry

    For an outdoor pool, I wouldn't bother replacing the lamp. Ozone doesn't add much value for an outdoor residential pool.

    Wow, This has STICKY all over it, IMHO. These the #1 and #2 reasons I discourage people Ozone generators. The lack of benefits vs cost and on-going costs.
