Replacing your UV Sterilization bulb every year will provide the best results whether you are using the lamp for air purification or water sterilization.
Various germicidal units available will provide you with a soft alarm, others with a red light indicator when it’s time to change your bulb. Before replacing the UV lamp because of these indicators, it is helpful to troubleshoot by checking the manual. Depending on how old the unit is, any number of situations can be responsible for the alarm: your ballast, connectors, quartz sleeve or wires may be at fault.
