- Aug 1, 2004Many moons ago out on the ranch, I can remember using softened water
in all the batteries, because it seemed like it was better than well
water, and don't remember that causing a problem.
Well after that, in the early 60"s, while I was servicing cars at a
GM dealership, the battery filler was filled from a faucet in the
restroom where no customers could see it.
Then for many years I would use distilled water whenever I could
steal it from the wifes supply w/o getting caught, otherwise it came
from city water.
And now for many years I've used R/O water from our kitchen.
And my conclusion is that any water is much better than no water,
and Batteries usually last, and seldom out last their warranty
period, (before they start going downhill in capacity) no matter
what kind of water is used.
