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 ???????????????
