On the last 12v battery I opened up because I wanted the case for electro plating.! cell was totally destroyed 5 were in good condition.Dumping out batteries fills the plates with mud, waste of time.Used to take bad cells out of 6v batteries and replace with good cells in the 50s.Most of the plates had shed material.When the hydrometer bring up gray water the cell is on the way out.Baking soda will nuetrilize battery electrolyte making it worthless in a battery.

I dumped the acid to begin with then filled with distilled water and baking soda. That neutralizes it inside. Then I dumped that out.

I had the same muddy water on the bottom of mine also. I just kept a hose in the hole and kept dumping. It cleared up pretty good.

As of this a.m.(no charger on it last night)it was down to 11.7V. It's possible it didn't charge long enough but I have a feeling it won't hold a full charge for anything more than an hour. Oh well, I can still get my $10 core if it is not going to cooperate by this evening.
