Re: Realistic expectations for my house batteries

We just sold a nice FLA bank with an automatic watering system. For the 3 months I used it, that watering system was really nice. Definitely worth the cost if you have FLA. I balked at it in the past because it isn't too difficult to maintain FLA's, but I must admit it is ridiculously nice to just occasionally squeeze a bulb whenever you think about it and have all of the battery cells get exactly the right amount of water without ever removing the caps. Could probably even hook it up to a pump with an adjustable pressure switch to be truly automatic.
