Did You Know?? Storing Fluorescent Lamps…

Did you know that storing fluorescent lamps on one end can lead to hard starting and poor initial performance? Mercury inside the tube can “fall” to the lower end of the lamp during storage. By not having mercury evenly distributed throughout the lamp, it will take longer to start. It will also take longer to get up to full brightness and you may see swirling. Fluorescent lamps should always be stored horizontally.
