Automatic Battery Watering Systems

To make your new or existing forklift battery virtually maintenance free, we recommend installing an automatic battery watering system and water level indicator light. This can be accomplished for less than $20 per cell, plus (1) $50 indicator module (installed). The benefits are:

 

  • Weekly watering takes just one to two minutes.
  • No user contact with the battery or vent caps.
  • No safety equipment required (such as eye wash systems and protective gear).
  • Narrow isle trucks do not require removal of the battery for watering.
  • Accidental overfilling, acid overflow and corrosion are eliminated.
  • Achieve the maximum number of cycles and productivity, usually 7yrs or more.
  • Optional water level indicator light further reduces maintenance and allows operators and management to easily monitor battery water levels at a glance.
