Knowing Your Inverter
In its most basic form, an inverter transforms Direct
Current (DC) to Alternating Current (AC). The battery
acts as a reserve to ensure continuous supply of
power whenever mains supply from utility power is not
available. The inverter is used to charge the battery
when normal utility power is available and converts
the battery’s DC to AC voltage to run the pump when
utility power is lost.
Battery Safety
CAUTION: Do not dispose of battery in a fire.
The battery may explode.
CAUTION: A battery can present a risk of
severe burn and injury from high short circuit
current. The following precautions should be observed
when working on batteries.
CAUTION: Do not open or mutilate the
battery. Released electrolyte is harmful to the
skin and eyes. It may be toxic.
CAUTION: The electrolyte is a dilute sulfuric
acid that is harmful to the skin and eyes. It is
electrically conductive and corrosive. The following
procedures should be observed:
a. If electrolyte contacts the skin, wash it off
immediately.
CAUTION: Have plenty of fresh water and
soap nearby in the event that battery acid
contact skin, clothing or eyes.
b. If electrolyte contacts the eyes, flush
thoroughly and immediately with water.
Seek medical attention.
CAUTION: Wear complete eye and clothing
protection.
c. Spilled electrolyte should be washed down
with a suitable acid neutralizing agent. A
common practice is to use a solution of
approximately one pound (500 grams)
bicarbonate of soda to approximately one
gallon (4 liters) of water. The bicarbonate of
soda solution be added until the evidence
of reaction (foaming) has ceased. The
resulting liquid should be flushed with
water and the area dried.
CAUTION: Avoid touching eyes while working
near batteries. Wash your hands when done.
CAUTION: If battery acid comes in contact
with skin or clothing, wash immediately with
soap and water.
CAUTION: Do not reverse the battery
connections, as it will blow the battery fuse. A

power cord has been provided to connect the inverter
to incoming AC wall outlet.
Replacing Battery
Wear full eye protection and protective clothing.
Battery Requirements
Your unit operates on 24 VDC battery power when
in the power fail mode. A UL recognized deep cycle
marine battery should be used. There are two principal
types of batteries: starting and deep cycle. There
are several different types of battery constitutions
including liquid lead acid, nickel iron, nickel cadmium,
alkaline and maintenance free. Batteries are sealed
or vented.
Starting Batteries
Starting batteries are designed for high cranking
power but not deep cycling. Do not use them with your
inverter. They do not affect the inverter, but they will
simply not last long in a deep cycle application. They
use lot of thin plates to maximize the surface area of
the battery. This allows very high starting current but
less run time when the battery is cycled.
Deep Cycle Batteries
Deep cycle batteries are best suited for use with
the inverter. They are designed to have the majority
of their capacity used before recharge. Available
in many sizes and types, be sure to use at least a
100AH battery.
BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED
Battery Maintenance
1. If you are using AGM maintenance free
batteries you do not need to perform any
maintenance to your batteries. For all
other batteries refer to the manufacturer
recommended battery maintenance section.
2. Maintenance or replacement of batteries
should be performed or supervised by
personnel knowledgeable of batteries and the
required precautions.
When replacing the battery/batteries, use the same
type and size battery/batteries. See left, Battery
Requirements.
DANGER: The electrolyte is a dilute sulfuric
acid that is harmful to the skin and eyes. It is
electrically conductive and corrosive. The following
procedures should be observed:
•
Do not lay tools or metal objects on top of the
batteries
•
Use tools with insulated handles
1. Unplug the unit from the wall.
2. Follow the Installation Instructions found on
page 4 of this manual, starting with step 8 and
working back to step 1.
3. Remove and safely dispose of old batteries.
4. Install new batteries per the installation
instructions on page 5.
Tools Needed
A pipe wrench, pliers, adjustable wrench, and
screwdriver will be needed.
Installation Instructions
Remove all packing and contents from the battery
box enclosure. The contents should include: Inverter,
pump, quick connect lead and fuse link.
Find a suitable place to set the unit. Keep in mind that
the unit should be placed in a area where water and
moisture will not splash or drip on the unit, the fan inlet
on the sides of the enclosure will not be obstructed
and where a properly grounded three prong dedicated
receptacle is within reach of the power cord.
Remove watches, rings, or other metal objects.
Use tools with insulated handles.
