Check your control gear, some of them can control from 150w up to 400w.

No, that's the ignitor mekaeel, need to check the ballast.

Les, this is about as much as I know, will have to wait for someone like Hill or Alan to help out. I know you do get them, I saw them at a lighting shop.

Les go to Voltex. Speak to Tracey. Tell her I sent you. (Yeah I buys there quite a lot) Get a price on a ballast. It cant be too expensive.

I will swap 3 x Mh lamp holders 150W with the ballest for your 250W complete fittings and ballast if you can send me a pic and sizes to make sure they will fit my light fitting. I just baught a light fitting about two weeks ago after Submarine sold his. Let me know if you are interested. I am based in Jhb.
