Blown Ultraviolet bulb


Hi folks after 5 years running the ultraviolet bulb went dark . I replaced it with an exact same bulb it blew right away. At $30.00 a pop I'm a little gun shy to place the second one in. Can a bad ballast blow the bulb and how best to check it. Thanks Mike

If your talking about a flourescent strip yes I bet it is the ballast. It can usually only be either the bulb or the ballast and you already ruled out the bulb
