Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bullfrogcorner So far so good (10+ years)
So far its been running for more than 10 years and has just recently required maintenance. The battery alarm went off a couple of weeks ago. I added distilled water and waited for it to recharge which it did. One question I have is how long will it run when/if the power goes out?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ednivi 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...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by thetruth Failed after only 2 years
I was using this battery in conjunction with the Basement Watchdog Emergency system.
After only 2 years an annoying alarm would come every time the pump activated. (it was the battery alarm) And the pump would barely have enough power from the battery to pump anything out of the pit. I blame half of it on the Basement Watchdog Emergency's bad charger, which would overcharge and fry the battery which already seemed useless since it would refuse to run the pump properly without an annoying battery alarm. It was also a pain to clean the corrosion off the positive post with a wire brush. And when the pump did run, it ran continuously and discharged the battery in 30 minutes. And if I looked down into the battery box, I would see a ton of water which the battery seemed to have leaked out from somewhere. So this battery leaks, does not hold charge, causes corrosion, and does not last long.

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.

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.

I was surprised when I discovered that the battery is hipped without acid and that it has to purchased separately. There should be a clear notice, in large type, on the web site ti inform customer that this is the case. Please consider revising the content of your web page.
