If battery alarm goes off and won't shut off does mean it needs distilled water added to battery or do I need a new battery?

my battery died right in the middle of a week long heavy rain storm , it is 4yrs old. Seems I have to replace these battery every 3or 4 yrs. . Can these batteries be recharged by the homeowner?? I tried to recharge it by putting it on a car charger , left it on for 2 days still did not charge. I was just trying to avoid another $100. plus the cost of the acid. :( The acid should come with the battery not sold seperatly for another $21 .
Asked by: vietvet69
The battery is just like the battery in your car, it has a life span. The pump system has a charge system built into it that keeps the battery charged. The battery should be checked on a monthly basis and the battery acid or water checked and adjusted. The pump should also be run to allow the battery to work.

Asked by: Rocket
Try cleaning the 'monitoring prong', the one in cell #2. Then re-insert.

Emergency Standby Battery is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 52.

Only challenge is initially filling up the battery with battery acid as it is difficult to see where you are at in comparison to the threshold markings on the battery when filling it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Life! 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.
