About This Product

The Basement Watchdog Big Standby Battery is compatible with all Basement Watchdog battery backup sump pump systems. It is uniquely constructed with heavy duty plates to store more energy, provide longer run times and last longer in standby operation. The high reserve capacity of the Big Standby Battery can run any Basement Watchdog battery backup system 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.

Q:How many cranking amps
by|May 3, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  We do not rate our batteries by cold cranking amps since they are deep cycle and not a starter type battery. If you needed the CCA rating for testing purposes you would want to use 400CCA. For more information, please contact our customer support team at 800-991-0466 option 3. We are available to take incoming calls from 8am – 6pm CT Monday through Friday.

          Basement Watchdog Battery failure
          Basement Watchdog Battery failed and went “defective “ in well under 2 years (20 months). At $140, actually more when you add the cost of the battery acid as well. it seems pricey to have to replace. Currently looking for an alternative.

          We are sorry to hear you had a problem with this battery. They normally have a lifespan of 4-6 years. Something may have caused the battery to become discharged, and it may not actually be bad. I would recommend calling our service team at 800-991-0466 option 3 so we can troubleshoot this with you. We are available to take incoming calls from 8am – 6pm CT Monday through Friday.

            It was easy to install. At first, it did not work because I connect the wrong wire. However, after calling customer service, it is now working.

            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.

            sump pump backup battery
            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.

            Terrible Battery - It WILL Fail
            Installed the Watchdog system around 12 years ago, and while the overall system is great the batteries are the worst that I have ever encountered. They WILL fail, usually in the 2nd or 3rd year. I installed the fourth replacement in December 2019, and the defective battery alarm triggered today just as they all have previously. I have always kept the cells topped up with distilled water and the battery box is installed in a room temp basement on a table up off the floor. Utter junk.

            Sorry to hear you've had problems with these batteries. Just because the battery light comes on it doesn't always mean the battery is actually bad, just low on voltage. There are several things that can cause this. I would recommend contacting our service team at 800-991-0466 option 3. We can troubleshoot this with you to see if the battery is really bad or not. Typically these batteries should be lasting at least 5 years on average.
              Delivered on time. No issues. Easy peasy.
