Protect batteries using

Hammerhead’s ‘HH5056’

The new HH5056 Battery Box, from Hammerhead


Patented Performance, Inc., of Delray Beach, Fla., manufacturer of battery-powered pool cleaning machines, provides easier battery access with an exclusive 3-piece design.

Exposed battery terminals can corrode faster, can be accidentally bridged, and can lead to overheating and possible fire.

For safety reasons, it is a good idea to cover a marine battery and protect it from sun, heat, rain, and pool water.

The HH5056 simplifies battery care; just lift the front panel out of the way to access, maintain, or charge the marine battery while it is still on the cart.

Hammerhead, serving the pool service industry for over 20 years, makes pool-to-pool work more efficient with lightweight and easy-to-maneuver Service-21 and Service-30 vacuum units that mount to any trailer or 2-inch trailer hitch for easy one-trip transport.
