Product Overview

The Basement Watchdog Big Standby Battery is compatible with all Basement Watchdog battery backup sump pump systems. It is uniquely constructed with heavy duty plates to store more energy, provide longer run times and last longer in standby operation. The high reserve capacity of the Big Standby Battery can run any Basement Watchdog battery backup system intermittently for days. They are shipped dry and vacuumed sealed to retain freshness. Activation is easily started by adding the 6 qt. battery fluid pack (sold separately). Basement Watchdog Standby Batteries will accommodate the fluid sensor that will allow the battery backup controller to sound an alarm when distilled water is needed.

This purchase is a replacement for an existing battery with the same model number that lasted six years. The style has changed somewhat from the previous model. The old battery had a hole built into the top for the low water monitoring pin, and this one did not. There was an arrow that pointed to the second cell from the left and said that the monitoring pin should be placed there, but the only way to do that was to drill a hole in the cap for that cell. So far, everything seems to be working well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost got 2 years out of it. My current Basement Watchdog battery has given me great service for the past 23 months. It almost made 2 years. My sump pumps is now giving me a message of bad battery. I cleaned the terminals and checked the fluid levels and it is still giving me the message. Considering it sits on a charger around the clock I guess that's not bad. I'll be heading to Home Depot to pick up another one this weekend and lets see how long it survives.

It is the same brand. When I purchased the original watchdog unit, the battery lasted well over 2 years. Don't know why the replacements aren't lasting as long. The usage is almost the same so it's not being overworked. It does what it's supposed to do so I'll say OK to purchase. Wish it had better life.

This is the third battery that I have purchased in the past 12 years for my sump pump. I'm not saying the others went totally bad, but every four years or so I will change out my back up because I have had one flooded basement, and I don't every want to have another.
