Club Car To Install Pro-Fill Battery Watering System On All Precedent Electric Golf Cars
Byron Center, MI – March 20, 2012
The Pro-Fill Onboard Battery Watering System by Flow-Rite will now come standard on all Club Car Precedent golf cars. Pro-Fill replaces the water lost in golf car batteries due to evaporation during charging and daily use. Pro-Fill is the only battery watering system specifically designed for “golf car” style batteries.
“We’re pleased to add the Pro-Fill system to Precedent’s standard offerings to enhance efficiency and safety for our customers,” said Tim Walls, Golf Category Manager at Club Car, a brand of Ingersoll Rand. “Pro-Fill is one more way that Club Car helps customers reduce costs and manage their fleets more effectively.”
The Pro-Fill system works by replacing the battery's existing vent caps with valves that are interconnected with tubing, allowing the user to fill all battery cells from one remote location. Each valve independently shuts off water flow to the cell when the proper electrolyte level is reached.
“Thorough testing is performed on all Pro-Fill valves to ensure the high quality expected by Club Car customers,” said Rob Brock, Global Sales Director of Flow-Rite Controls. “We are honored to be selected as the watering system of choice by the golf car industry leader and look forward to our continued relationship with Club Car.”
