buy lights and growing equipment used...
iv been looking around the net, and there are alot of places (ebay etc) that sell used ballasts, full lighting systems, hydro systems, and anything else you could think of. most of the other stuff i know would be ok to buy used, its just the ballasts/lights im worried about. i know bulbs have around an 18 month life, how about ballasts though? is it smart to buy used equipment off line? im seeing really great deals (1000w hps lighting for like 150-250). thanks.
I grow marijuana, and I encourage others to as well.

Risky business dude, a typicall ballast is good for a couple years from what i read, plus it is possible to degrade ballast life with human erorr with turning off then on right away. Who knows how long they had it, u gana trust a couple of dopers? Many check out htgsupply.com and get a brand new 1000w for like 120.

Look more closely, you don't have to buy used. I called one place that sells every size shape and wattage of lights, ballasts etc. I bought from them and it was cheaper than going through e. (That's where I found them)

take a look
man, I know plenty of places you can order 1000watt ballast kits for like 60-75 bucks. It takes me 20 mins to wire one together.
and its NEW!

I'd go new...You don't need equipment failure 1/2 way through your grow...Some things shouldn't be low balled when it comes to prices. If you decide to use mh, hps, or whatever don't buy cheap.......................you might pay in the end........
