  • Replacing ballast for a Pioneer VIII, 4' 8-tube fixture

    Created by Ed Wood on


    I am the garden manager for a program that grows, prepares, and serves food to people in need. We bought two of your growlights, used. Four bulbs on one of them – the inside ones – do not work and I suspect a bad ballast. Is it possible to replace just the ballast on this fixture? We are on a very limited budget, so any solution can’t cost an arm and a leg (we only paid $20 for the fixture sans bulbs).

    Thank you in advance.
