Aquion s30 battery technology

I discovered these amazing batteries having gone throught the pain of going through three sets of lead-acid batteries in my life.

These saltwater batteries are made by Aquion and you can read about them here. The key points are: deep-cycle, no problem. This doesn't damage the battery, so if you have a low-light or no-light week and the batteries are running low, you're not harming them. This is the main reason people burn out their lead-acids prematurely - that or, failure to check water levels, etc. Which brings us to great point #2 with these batteries: no maintenance!

Power is burried underground in massive cable and goes into the salt water batteries in the power-room in the workshop beside the house. These batteries are Aquion S30s and we started with an install of 12. When we heared that Aquion was in chapter 11, we bought 4 more of these for a total of 16.

Spring water system: The best tasting water on earth comes from mountain springs and this property has more than one. Our springs are quite a way up the mountain so we benefit from gravity flow, which means if we lose electricity, the water is still running. We ran two series of polypipe down the mountain for back up. If a line freezes or a bear or other problem occurs with one pipe, you can switch the line while repairs are made.

Water storage, irrigation and fire fighting water: We have 10,000 gallons of potable water storage in four 2500 gallon water storage tanks. We have thousands of gallons of water tanks for irrigation or fire defense purposes. Lines have been sent in various directions for agriculutral purposes. Fire fighting equipmentThe ranch comes with two pumps, a multi-quip with vairous outputs and also a volume pump, lots of firehose, nossles and fittings. We have fought fire here and recommend putting a water tank on the diesel pickup we are leaving with the ranch to act as a small fire truck.
