I had a glass company make up a lens for my hood. Now I wonder if the glass is interfering with the properties of my lights. The glass is 3/16 thick. The lights are the "AquaGro" GroBeam 1500 Ultima Leds.
The reason for the lens is to give the leds more protection from moisture buildup in the hood. My leds were failing and when I contacted the distributor, he said they were getting a number of complaints and the solution was to install cross ventilation. So I made the changes by making openings on both ends of the hood, installed a grille on each and then installed a fan in the top of the hood. Now with the lens installed, air in drawn in on both ends and exits in the middle of the hood.
Now the reason I suspect interference, is that gpa and bsa is taking over my plants and I suspect a lighting issue. Your thoughts?
