Replacement T5 bulbs


Not doing a store review, but I purchased replacement t5 bulbs at about $2.75 shipped. I questioned myself "why the heck is it so cheap" and remembered that we are all getting gouged by specialized companies.

I think it would be valuable for individuals to know economical suppliers of some bulbs, so this is the website http://www.payless-4-lighting.com

I purchased 24/36/48 inch bulbs for my fixtures, and have them up and running again.

In another month I'll be starting my transition over to led lighting.
Technology I hear your call. 1/2 price electric bills here I come!

Yes, but daylight bulbs? Daylight bulbs always cost more, no matter what the application.
