Just wondering if Telus owns the equipment and I lease it or I own it?

The battery in my UPS is 5 years old and finally have put. The UPS beeps.

The battery is your typical 12V 8Ah gel battery easily available and replaceable.

Am I messing with Telus equipment if I just go in there and replace it myself?

Customer service waits are over an hour. Don’t have that kind of time for a simple issue.

Officially it is Telus equipment, but if you are comfortable with the battery change, weigh the value of your time waiting versus doing it yourself.

I didn’t realize fibre installs go back that far. Time flies.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

We’ve only had the fibre optic system for theee years but I suspect the UPS or at least the battery were on some shelf somewhere until needed.

And at about $22 for a replacement battery and 3 mins to hook it up, the math works.

Thanks again!
