What brand tube are you buying now? Reci and EFR are fairly reputable. GSI is a step up in quality, but also significantly more expensive.

Also, are you overworking the tube? The manufacturers have very specific amps they can run at. You need to monitor this and make sure you run under the max power they spec out. Also you need to run a proper cooler. CW-5000 should be okay. CW-3000 is not good enough.

You might want to look at your water chilling system as well. If the tube isn't cooled well you'll lose power as it heats up. If you don't have one purchase a refrigerated chiller.

Sometimes out of many machines, may some of getting bad assembled or some bad quality parts that's why we have to suffer much. In that case as you already used 2 years more, I think it's better to get new one. And hope you already found your problem solved.
