WHY BATTERY WATER LEVELS MATTER
When battery water levels drop too low, the active material will oxidize. This will cause the battery to lose power and if levels are too low for too long, may result in permanent damage. It's important to regularly check and maintain the water levels of your battery fleet to maximize its useful life and avoid any costly downtime.
IMPORTANT SAFETY TIPS
+ Work only in designated areas
+ Make sure the work surface is stable and level, adequately ventilated and free of spark or flame producing items.
HOW TO CHECK BATTERY WATER LEVELS
STEP 1. REMOVE
Remove the cell cap or vent cap on each battery cell.
STEP 2. CHECK
Check the water level. If level is above the protective splash plate, no water is needed.
STEP 3. WATER LEVEL
If the water level is below the splash plate and plates are exposed, water is needed.
