Big Standby Battery is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 192.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I just bought my second Watch Dog large capacity battery. ... I just bought my second Watch Dog large capacity battery. The first one lasted four years and two months and then the charging unit started to beeb and flash the bad battery light. As far as I know I never needed the battery back up during those four years. It is a pain to have to add water to the battery to keep it full.. Typically I had to add 6-8 ounces of distlled water to each of the six cells every three to four months. Watch Dog now has a maintenance free battery but my four year old system is not approved for use with that type battery. I'm still glad I have the battery back up system but I wish the battery lasted longer. Perhaps this new battery will make it to six years.

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.

I would recommend using gloves as the acid does not feel the best on your skin. The battery itself hasn't had to operate, but the whole sump system setup was very easy. Measure twice, cut once.
