Philips TUV 55W HO G55T8 UV Lamp
A UV Lamp is the heart of the UV treatment system. The lamp needs to operate correctly to ensure the water in your home is safe.
Unlike regular light bulbs, UV Lamps do not burn out – they solarize. This means that over time they reduce in their light wave intensity to about 60% of what a new UV lamp provides. This point is reached usually after one year, or 9000 hours, of continuous use.
