We live in country WA.

On our estate, that consists of 130 one acre blocks, we have a stand by Ford Diesel generator, which has auto start on it.

I believe that we can buy a charger 24 volt, which will moinitor the condition of the batteries, and will keep charging or topping them up, to ensure that the engine will always start.

The stand by unit is used to run the estate water pumps, which in turn supply pressure to the fire hydrants.

Can any one steer me in the right direction

Go to
.. ..
and have a look at their 3-stage automatic chargers, specifically the MD241075 ... This one is 12v 15A/ 24v 7.5A, and would suit your requirements...
I'm sure there are others as well....

Make sure you use a three stage charger. These chargers will charge and maintain your batteries without damaging the batteries. Good quality 24V chargers can cost a bit but will pay for themselves in the long run.
Hope this helps

I'm with Ed about contacting Projecta. I would suggest calling them and speaking to someone about technical advice, I have done so in the past and found them exremely helpful. Call Brown and Watson (Projecta distributors) on 03 9730 6000.
