Basement Watchdog battery quick tip

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Battery terminal corrosion can be a serious issue for a Basement Watchdog system.  If you want to prevent the terminals from rusting, first clean any existing corrosion using a small wire brush and some battery terminal cleaner (if your system is new, you shouldn’t have to worry about cleaning).  Then, connect the battery terminals securely.  The final step is to coat the terminals and posts liberally with dielectric grease.  It is important that you only apply the grease AFTER you have connected the battery and tightened the terminals.  Your battery terminals will now enjoy a long corrosion free life!
