- Aug 1, 2004Theoretically, no well water, or softened water is good for batts,
because it picks up a lot of minerals just from running thru metal
pipes, or thats what the batt techs say.
But like my post stated, in 50 years of watering batteries (both
personal and commercial) w/ every kind of water imaginable, it makes
no noticable difference in the longivity of a battery which water is
And when it comes to an occasional battery failing under warranty,
even in the first 6 months, it is never tested to see if it has been
abused or contaminated w/ bad water etc etc.
We can bet that many many more batts are ruined by "no water" than
by "wrong water"
