    Default Battery Water

    I am not surprised and suspected that:



    This is why I always buy 'Agua Bidestillada' from a Lab.
    The last time (when I again bought a box of 12 gallons) it was 70 Pesos/gallon....

    I don't understand enough Spanish to catch much from the video so I only watched about 30 seconds of it...but I have always use distilled water to top up batteries rather than tap or spring water.

    What's the jist of the video?

    If the 5 gallon water bottles are often filled with "Tap Water", are you surprised the "Battery Water" isn't as well?????

    The bottom line is, that what they sell here for 'distilled water' is not distilled water....

    Well, depending on the quality of the tap water, it may even be the better water.

    The tests that Nuria presented found that the water in 'botellones' were similar to distilled water and void of minerals.
    Can You Drink Distilled Water?

    Some people find that unhealthy.

    Never ever add more battery acid to a battery unless acid has spilled out of the battery. Only add the purist water you can find. Distilled water being the best if it is really available.

    If you are worried, you can buy a "Battery Tester" to tell you if you need more "ACID".
    It's a big syringe with a tube to suck up some water, and has floating balls to indicate the acid level.
    "Specific Gravity" or Something??????
