hey guys a question here
i can only run one of my 600w at a time
but i have 2 and want to run them each for 12 hours
opposite from each other using only one ballast

i read on-line about making something that will enable me to do this
but i have no skills at all when it comes to this
and i don't wanna burn my house down

the question is does bhg offer something to do this ?
i can not find it in the store
if no can someone point me to where i can buy one please

thanks for your time

Just saw a four ballast flip-flop on e-bay for about $70. Two ballasts in one room for 12 hrs, then two in another room. It didn't say whether you could use it with just two ballasts.

oops. Just went back and looked on e-bay; it's $220 and switches four ballasts between eight lamps. They, the manufactuer, says it can be used to switch fans and other equip. so it can probably be used on just two lamps. Item # 290211619471

I believe what you are looking for is this:

These products will be up on our website by the end of the week, but if you need one right away you can phone in your order.

These units are a bit more costly than the unit you mentioned on eBay, but in this case you definitely get what you pay for. This is the nicest ballast flip box I have seen to date, and the first one I can remember that is produced by a U.S. company.
