Default UV water sterilization - ballasts by the dozen

Several years ago I purchased an undercounter UV sterilizer and filtration system. It worked great as long as the filters were replaced regularly.

But the UV light ballast had to be replaced every six months or so. I finally got tired of buying ballasts and removed the system. It is cheaper to boil water or simply buy cases of bottled water.

I see UV water kits on ebay now that come with two or three extra ballasts. Doesn't anybody sell a system with a ballast that is not a consumable?

The same applies to UV devices made to install in HVAC ducts. I've never had one last longer than three months. I can understand consumable bulbs, not conumable ballasts.

What am I missing?
