Metal Halide Underwater! « on: June 01, 2010, 02:43:31 AM » Author: tmcdllr
Check this out

An underwater MH light complete with colored lamps! And since it is MH you could use a clear or coated MV lamp.

Nothing like the beautiful cool white light of a coated Mercury Vapor lamp and the soothing hum of it's magnetic ballast.

The "colored" lamps in the picture are 100% a result of photo processing, and are actually a duplicated pictures of the "White" lamp, and the whole fixture is a cheating, since it uses a regular, common, general purpose elliptical MH lamp, CWA ballast and ignitor instead of a special miniature MH lamp and equipment designed for underwater lighting.
Theoretically, the only lamps that can truly be operated underwater in a parament mounted fixtures are PAR56 or larger lamps with a screw terminal base (Both incandescents and halogens), and LEDs.
Professional submarine torches is the only application where MH lamps can be operated, and it uses special miniature MH lamps.
Ebay is well known for having to offer bogus or unsafety products that don't standing up on any standard, since there is almost no supervision on the products offered for sale.
Ebay is not suitable for organizations but only for private homes.
In Israel for example, i think organizations tends to block the access to Ebay in their Intra-nets connection to the internet for their computers, as well as Youtube and Facebook are also blocked on their computers.
Also, and the most important, it is possible that this is actually a buying fraud, and that the product that displayed is a graphic art and doesn't exist.

I believe this is possible and for real as if you search on Google you will find the manufacturer and website for this product. Don't know about the lamps but the fixture is real according to the manufacturer.

Yeah that is a total and complete rip off! The fixture is cool but not for that price.
