L 16 problems
I'd appreciate any help or suggestions. I have 12 L16's wired for 24 volts in three strings for my off-grid home. I have always thought that I have taken good care of them, following good eq and watering cycles and recharging to full at least once a week. A few months ago the water level did dip low enough to expose some plates. But this didn't seem to have an adverse effect. I have two strings that are acting weird. I eq'd just those two strings last week and now that they are back on line they have slowly lost power. (my hydrometer readings show that they are nearly dead. These batteries are about five years old. All of the charging parameters appear to be correct and the trimetric is definitely not reading the right percentage of power compared to the hydrometer readings. Are there any tricks to revive them or is it time to buy new ones?
