Product Overview

Basement Watchdog Standby Batteries are uniquely constructed with heavy duty plates to store more energy, provide longer run times and last longer in standby operation. The high reserve capacity can run compatible Basement Watchdog battery backup systems 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 battery is not recommended for use with the Basement Watchdog BW12-120C, BW4000 or BWSP.

i own a watchdog battery 24ep6 i open to service the battery and notice water or some liquid in the case what could this possibly be?
Asked by: Howard
Every Basement Watchdog battery has 6 caps with a small hole in each to allow for ventilation. As the battery stands there, a small out of water will evaporate - this is probably the liquid that you are noticing inside the case. It is perfectly normal and no need for concern. If you have any further questions, please call our Technical Support Team at 1-800-991-0466 and select Option 3.

How can you tell if you need a new battery? I refilled a cell that was low with distilled water, but the battery alarm still beeps. The refill was several days ago.
Asked by: Batteryman
Basement Watchdog battery backup systems are very accurate at detecting the state of the Basement Watchdog battery. When the system indicates the battery should be replaced, that's usually the case. The battery can also be tested with a 100 Amp load test. Please contact us directly for more information at 800-991-0466 ext. 3 for customer support. We are available to take incoming calls from 9am - 5pm CT Monday through Friday.

If battery alarm goes off and won't shut off does mean it needs distilled water added to battery or do I need a new battery?

Asked by: Mony
I did not need to buy a new battery. I unplugged the unit, disconnected the connections held in place by the wing nuts then filled the six cells with distilled water; plugged the unit back in and waited for about 45 minutes while it recharged the battery. It did beep until the charge was full. Remember to put the sensor back in place in the correct cell.

Emergency Standby Battery is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery Fluid should be sold with the battery. Otherwise... Battery Fluid should be sold with the battery. Otherwise need an extra trip to Homr Depot to procure. At least the computer should prompt the purchaser to see if they need the fluid package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Life! My original battery just failed after about 10 years in service. I experience 3-5 power outages per year and pump a lot of water so battery cycled coutless times. It is messy and a little tedious to maintain, but is 5 mins of attention to add water. (Buy yourself a small funnel when you pick this up and keep in the battery box.) Have added distilled water about once per year. Seems that durability and life is what they claim over sealed batteris. It has proven to provide stellar performance when maintained. Have read comments about the cost being high . . . this battery has possibly enabled me to avoid many painful insurance claims. I'm off to the 'Depot to buy the replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great battery I've had this battery for over eight years. Two nights ago we had a big storm and our power went out for 12 hours. This battery, even being this old, ran continuously for a little over 3 hours before it died. When it died, my neighbor's generator came to my rescue. I will be replacing this battery with another one real soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought as a replacement. Worked as expected. After installing I realize there was a yellow screw missing that is important for the system to measure and automatically alert you when acid levels are down so you can replenish. I sent an email to the company with the info and address. They immediately sent with no hassle. I like when companies just do what is right. Very pleased with product an: customer service...
