My unit has been "beeping" for months and the alert says: " Clean battery connectors or replace battery", but when I press the appropriate button when directed to reset, there is a green light next to the "charging", and a green light next to the "system operating". The connectors do not appear to have any corrosion.
Asked by: MamaMia
My suggestion since mien has only been installed for two weeks. I am going to treat this maintenance free battery no different then a car battery. Take baking soda and an old tooth brush and clean the terminals. Make sure the battery is not connected! Then take a wet microfiber and wipe off all the baking soda residue and wipe off the top of the battery. Then go to the auto store and buy this small spray bottle that is used for battery corrosion. It will usually be a red color that hits your terminals. Once that is done then connect everything and reset your Watchdog system. If you keep having issues call the company...

0.33 HP Special + Battery Backup Sump Pump System is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had to get a Backup pump for Peace of mind I purchased my home in mid November and have a 4 year old interior drain tile system with only a Primary pump and the rain started and alot and my pump was on and off every 8 minutes like I am sitting on a lake, it was very difficult to go to work and think what if the pump fails one and if the power somehow goes out, I am done and coming home to a flood. My basement is unfinished but still have throw rugs and normal appliances. I bought this install that night which was kind of a pain because of the rising water. I ended up buying 2 pre piped check valves and re did the Primary pump as well so the pre drilled 1/8 hole was completed, just trying to make it as quick as possible, it works good and I feel better. Everything is pricey, 268, 50 for 2 pre check valves, miscellaneous PVC fittings to re pipe the dual pump, 110 for the battery, box of acid was 30. Now if I want to hook up for Wi fi the module is 110 bucks and some sort of power back for home wifi incase the power goes out. Lot of money invested already but need it. That is my opinion on all this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watchdog Rocks! I purchased a basement watchdog last year to counter act frequent power failures in my area. I didn't understand the battery thing either, but was able to get one from HD. A local battery shop filled it up for $10. Now, after it sitting there for a while it was finally tested. My very wet basement was kept dry by the watchdog during a 3 hour loss of power. At that point I was ecstatic with it. Then came a 36 hour loss of power in April of this year. I plugged the controller (trickle charger) into my neighbors generator. The battery backup kept up for 30 hours. This while cycling every minute. That was pretty amazing. After the event I assumed the battery was done, but after putting it on a good charger it was back to 100%. Then came power loss number 2 for April and it held up again. This time it was spelled by a generator after just an hour. This unit has payed for itself 3 times over. $400 is a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Includes battery driven backup sump pump and electronics and battery box. You need to buy the battery separately if you don’t have one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it for peace of mind! Purchased this battery backup pump additionally with a new sump pump after my old contractor grade pump failed in my new house. Old pump less than 7 years old. I went to Home Depot and with the help of the salesperson, I got everything I needed. Salesperson went through the store with me and picked up everything I needed to install it. PVC fittings and all. Installed per instructions that are very well written. The battery (not included in kit) installation was the worst part of all the installation and it wasn't bad at all. You have to add the battery acid (also not included in kit) but being an old gear / motor head that wasn't bad. The instructions show and tell you everything even how to fill the battery. Went in without a problem. Let me tell with my luck that is saying a lot. It was so, so, so, easy Quality is excellent and it has a lot of features like an audible alarm to let you know when it is operating and it has it's own float switch to operate battery pump if your primary pump fails for any reason. If you have a basement, I can't stress it more, BUY IT and sleep easier!
