What do you do with old battery

I gave it auto battery recycle. Also, there are battery recycling centers run by cities or counties.

How do I get rid of dead battery, can I take it to Home Depot?

Answers

Home Depot does not take Dead Battery. You can drop it in one of the Automobile stores. I dropped at AutoZone and they took it free of cost and recycled it.

I bought a new one of these after about 10 years. Where can I recycle the old one ?

Major chain auto parts stores will take them.

Battery life on running how many hours it can run

Asked by Jarnail June 21, 2020

Answers

As per Watchdog description it can run up to 7.5 hours continuously, again it all depends up on battery maintenance. Topping up distilled water every quarter will maintain the battery life and health and works as advertised.

That has never happened to my system, someone at Home Depot should be able to help you.

I purchased a home with a basement watchdog installed, but there is no date code on the battery. ...

Asked by Andrew September 12, 2019

Answers

These batteries are shipped dry (no acid) until the battery is activated with acid they they will keep for years. Once the acid is added the clock starts. If you take care of the battery and add distilled water as needed it should last about three years after activated. A manufacturing date does not help estimate life, but knowing when the battery was put into service will.

WHAT DO I NEED TO SET IT TO MY SUMP PUMP

Asked by Valerie November 15, 2018
5
Answers

It comes dry, you need the acid. It comes as a premixed container. You should also have latex gloves and splash goggles as it is acid.

How long before battery starts the pump after losing power? Like during an outage.

Asked by MN June 5, 2018

Answers

immediately. It is not like a back up generator that has to start up. There is continuous power to the sump pump whether it's from the outlet or Battery.

Instructions were easy to use. 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.

This battery was easy to activate, thanks to the battery acid filler box. I had no trouble installing it and it very accessible. I can't wait to see how long it lasts.

Product is well made, easy to install but it does require the acid to be added which was a simple process. I’ve only had the battery installed a few months but I’ve had no issues, time will tell how many years I will ultimately get from the battery, but if maintained properly I should get 5 years of service.
