thedailysplash.tv lava lamp instructions
Choose a position for your lamp on a level surface in a room with a temperature between 20 and 24°C or (69 to 75°F).
Place the lamp well away from;
children under 14 years to prevent breakagesunlight to prevent fadingdrafts to prevent slow operationcold places to prevent freezinghot places to prevent overheatinganimals to prevent breakagedo not place on carpets or block the ventilation spaces beneath the lamp.
Set-Up & Warm-Up
Put the bottle on the base with the screw cap at the top. If it is not sitting straight please rotate a little. Then plug it in and turn it on. NB. It is normal for the glass to have small air bubbles and moulding scars.
Warm-up takes between 1 and 3 hours depending on the size of the model and the surrounding temperature. Stalagmite shapes may form during the warm-up process, these will then melt and the lava will begin to flow.
Your thedailysplash.tv lava lamp will operate best after it has been used four or five times. For the first few times, you may see small air bubbles in the lava. Please do not leave your lava lamp on for more than six hours a day; this will prolong the life of your lamp.
Overheating will shorten the light of the life of the lamp. Overheating is occurring if there is either one large bubble or many smaller ones. Never move or shake the lamp when it is in use or still warm as this causes irreparable clouding. It is normal for the base to become very hot.
When your lava lamp has ended its life it will begin to go cloudy, the colours may fade and it will not move as well as it once did. This will happen after approximately 2000 hours of operation. You can then buy a new bottle at www.thedailysplash.tv in the current colours available. Please note we do not refill bottles and please on no account open the bottle or add liquids.
If the bulb blows please replace it with one of the same type and wattage. Only fit the correct bulb, as stated on the label in the base. Again bulbs can be bought at www.thedailysplash.tv as can many replacement parts.
This lamp has passed the relevant safety standards and carries the statutory guarantee of the country of purchase. The liquid in the lamps are not dangerous and can be disposed of normally. Never use a lamp if the bottle has been dropped as this will create weakness in the glass, obtain a replacement bottle and dispose of the old one. Do not leave the lamp unattended with small children. If the liquid is swallowed by mistake drink plenty of water. If it is spilt onto the skin or had contact with the eyes pour on cold water. If any symptoms appear please visit a doctor.
Please retain these instructions should be retained for future use. If you have further questions about your lava lamp please visit http://www.thedailysplash.tv/lava_lamp_FAQ.html
A. A different lava formulation giving better lava flow, longer life, clearer liquids and more vivid colours. The metal parts are of a thicker, higher grade metal allowing us to hand polish them to a high shine. Our bulbs are directional taking the heat away from the base and directing the light into the lava. We have a higher standard of safety and build quality audited by a number of different bodies. We provide a comprehensive range of spare parts unlike other throw away products. We have 56 years of British manufacturing excellence to draw on.

Don’t worry whilst some halogen bulbs are being phased out for lighting purposes thedailysplash.tv uses halogen bulbs primarily to heat its lava lamps rather than to light them; so the use of halogen bulbs in our lava lamps is part of a special purpose exemption under current regulations. We have large stocks of these special purpose bulbs and we also have an ongoing supply. We also have alternative ways of powering our iconic lamps should there be further changes to the regulations in the future.
