Plus, this makes it seem you have to fool around with the system fairly often (eg, make sure filters not plogged up) so it is not really easier than just watering the batteries as usual IMO. However I don't have any experience with it to say for sure if it saves work.

Um no. My water system has worked perfectly with zero issues or special care going about six years now.

Just connect the feed tube every 6 months, insert into the distilled water and pump until you feel some resistance and all the indicators show full. I have never removed the batteries until they needed replacement. Water system saves time and adds safety to the process. Slam dunk improvement.

Every six months! Trojan says here at first to do it every few weeks until you get an idea of the needed interval. Para 4.2

The OP was going to use 6s, which I found to need lots of water quite often when doing my 50-90s. It does all depend on how hard you work the batteries.

Mine (EPever) will do up to 17VDC for up to 180 minutes, every 28th day of the month. But I'm too chicken to boil them that much.

So I use the canned program for flooded LA, which is 14.8v for 120 minutes.

Considering these batteries are over 10 years old, and for all but the last 6 months never saw more than 13.6v from my WFCO, I would say they have done pretty good with no TLC whatsoever. They are using a lot more water now with the solar controller doing the charging and the converter turned off. I don't feel compelled to do anything extreme in an attempt to eek out more life, from these, or the next set. And I recognize that I am on borrowed time with these.

These are Interstate not Trojan.


No fair bringing real life into this! Trojan gods will get you for that. [emoticon]
