Odd residential installations « on: July 06, 2016, 12:55:43 PM » Author: Lumex120
Have you ever seen a MH shoebox in someone's backyard? Have you ever seen a 400w MH flood on someone's house? Ever seen highbays in the living room? I have seen all of these but the highbays in a living room. I always wonder how they got there. Have you ever seen an unusual residential HID installation?

The 400 watt shoebox would be about right for a backyard ice rink. I've seen some shoeboxes and floods for this purpose.

It didn't look like there would have been an ice rink there. It was just grass. The light also worked and came on at night. I think it might have been 175w though.

I have a buddy who has a couple of LED cobraheads setup like floodlights to light his back yard.

The most unusual ive seen was a 90w LPS fixture inside someones garage that was next door to the house of a friend of mine. I was never able to walk over and ask him about it though. When I was really young my neighbor across the street had a woodworking shop in his garage and he used 160w or 250w self ballasted mercury lamps in combination with 300w or 500w incandescents.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

I saw that in your gallery.  ;D My only concern is that when it goes EOL the next owners will replace it or mislamp it. If I owned it, I would have put a 400w merc in it because that should never have issues.

It wasn't  important enough to me to go out and get a mercury lamp.

I've seen a MH flood light used as a Christmas flood light (to light the fa├žade of a house). It was probably 175W although maybe 250 but not more. I don't recall where, though.

Also the odd house will have a MH flood rented from the power company. There are only about 2 or 3 in a very large area, though. They are most likely 250W as that is the smallest wattage offered by the power company.

Why rent outdoor light fixtures when you can have your very own?

No maintenance on the part of the renter. Simply a phone call (or a web report) and the power company fixes or replaces it without charging as that cost is included in the rent. Most of us here would want to own it, however some people prefer renting as the power company wouldn't have them available otherwise.
