replacement of water be made every two weeksIf the battery has been standing for 30 days, recharge the battery before placing
it into service to ensure reliable starting Charge battery to the specific gravity recommended by the battery manufacturerCheck
the specific gravity of the battery electrolyte with battery hydrometer, preferably one that has built-in thermometer and
correction chartNo other method should be used to determine the charge condition of batteryNote also that hydrometer reading
