I'm new to the site. I'd like to say thank you to everyone whose contributed to all the great information here. I have 4 52 ounce lamps that I was never happy with. I thought these things are garbage after a few months of use so I put them away after Christmas. I didn't realise they did away with the 32 ounce ones when I went looking for more so I ended up getting these 20 ounce lamps last week. Then I found this site and realised I could probably save the old 4 I had and so I have begun trying to save them. They are cloudy and were overheating so I ordered new frosted bulbs and purchased a couple dimmers from home depot. I've set them up on a timer now for 8 hours a day trying to clear them up. Thanks again everyone for all the great info on here.
If you guys could feel free to give me any advice or if you think the 52 ounce lamps look like lost causes let me know. I WISH I FOUND THIS SITE SOONER! ;)
