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.

How to make battery alarm stop with new battery installation?

Purchased a new battery 4 years ago but it was never used , actually still in the box until recently when existing watchdog battery finally died. Put battery fluid in new one and attached it to watchdog system but battery alarm still sounds and can't get it to stop even after reset button has been pushed. All connections are good.
Asked by: JoMar
The battery alone has no alarm, but I presume you have a Basement Watchdog system of some time. Press the reset button. The pump may run for up to 30 seconds (and your well could run dry for a bit), but it is designed to stop and clear all alarms.

I purchased this battery to replace one exactly like it for my basement backup system. It is replacing one which lasted for over 11 years. Hope this one does the same. The battery comes dry so I also needed to buy the acid needed to activate the battery.
