Where to buy house bank batteries in Canada

I have to replace my 700 amp Gel house batteries; they are not able to keep any charge after this winter. I guess it is my fault, was not able to keep them properly charged?! My house bank consisted of 10 70 amp Gel batteries and I would like to keep that set up, mostly due to space restrictions.

I do have one Air Breeze Wind Generator, two 135 Watt Kyocera Solar panels and one Ampair Aquair 100 water generator keep them charged, besides two 55 amp alternators on my Yanmar diesel engines.

Do you know where to buy batteries in Canada? And any suggestions what brand I should be looking for.

Many thanks in advance,

Re: Where to buy house bank batteries in Canada

I understand that Rolls/Surette are manufactured in NS.

Tip, the solar Rolls batteries are cheaper but seem to be the same as the Marine Rolls batteries in all respects. However they will not honor the warranty if the solar batteries are installed on a boat.

There are also Trojan dealers in Dartmouth and Dieppe, NB.

Google is a great resource.
