How long should this battery last before you need to replace it? Is 5 years a reasonable life of the battery?
Asked by: MD
I installed my first one in May of 2011 and with proper maintenance, it has lasted until now - January 2018, so almost 7 years out of that one. I would recommend not waiting until it is dead though. I plan to replace every 5 years going forward.

I tried to carefully follow the directions to fill the battery with acid, but I came up short on the last 2 or 3 cells for trying to get to the right level. Also, the battery did not include the cell knob which has a hole for the battery probe, but CS did send me one.

The acid is hard to find, only advance Auto had it in Atlanta. It is expensive, each box cost $14. It took seven boxes to fill the battery. Some people may not be comfortable with the filling process. The batteries seem to work fine.

This cost me an additional $35. And it is difficult to add the acid. It would have been much easier and cheaper to buy the battery at a local battery facility.

Just remember to get the acid for the battery (it comes dry) and ensure you have proper PPE. I didn't have a problem with splashing but controlling the little straw was key.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My hands were tied if I wanted to use the fluid level sensor feature. To use it, you need to use ... My hands were tied if I wanted to use the fluid level sensor feature. To use it, you need to use a basement watchdog battery. I get the battery home to find that the small yellow cap needed to mount the sensor isn't included in the package. The documentation explains that you should keep the cap from your previous battery. Well, my previous battery was manufactured in 2008 and was of a different design, it did not use/come with this yellow cap. The fact that this battery is as expensive as it is and the manufacturer doesn't have the decency to include the cap in the package is very frustrating and poor business practice. The cap can't be worth more than $0.50 and it should be included in the sale, even if only 10% of purchasers end up using/needing it. Giving 2 stars instead of 1 because I called Basement Watchdog and they are mailing me a cap free of charge - the rep was pleasant. Recommending the battery only because you have no other option if you want to use the sensor with the battery. You can bypass it, but then you are effectively neutering a major feature.
