    Hi All

    long shot but does anyone know where to get replacement UV bulbs from?

    I am looking for a PL-S 5w TUV

    I have phoned so many places including phillips head office and no one seems to stock this.

    Thanks

    the brand stamp on it is Aquael, I think its a polish company.

    You CAN get replacement bulbs in UK / USA etc

    UV-C bulbs

    they just put you on to Phillips or GE

    I have contacted Phillips locally and its a discontinued item, was hoping someone would have stock somewhere.

    UV-C Sterilizer

    on the AS-5w

    the 7w bulb might be too long, also will the transformer handle it?
