    We knew this was going to happen when they released this tube. We had some of the same concerns about five years ago with overheating. A couple of the “Big Brands” wanted to jump on the bandwagon without doing enough testing and this is what happens. If you read one of their warranties, it states “Up to THREE hours of use per day”. What business is open three hours a day?!
    Our tubes have been tested on BP oil tankers for over four years now without one failure and they are still going strong. We were the first to come out with it, we have all the patents, and most importantly we are UL Listed and DLC.
