maintenance free battery back up
 
What is the reason for not using a maintnenance free battery in the watchdog back up sump pump

So when you loose your normal AC power, the backup battery can keep the sump pump running....I'm sure you would really understand why if you had a power failure....and your basement started to fill up with water......

If the question is why not use a mantance free battery instead of a wet cell there is no good reason other then the higher cost of the battery.

I'm confused now.....

Is the question "Why use a battery"
or "Why not use a maint free battery"
or "It should have been a maint free battery"
or ???????????????
