You should check them after being charged, but if they needed water, then there is no problem. You never want to charge batteries with exposed plates! I think the only reason it's recommended to check after charging is to reduce the risk of overfilling...

How much water did you add, (how much of the plates were exposed?)

After charging could you let us know what your pack voltage is after a short rest as well as did your batteries spill over while charging, (after adding this water.)

The batteries did not spill over after charging. I don't have my voltmeter with me so I unfortunately can't check. What I have noticed, likely because the cart sits unused a lot, is that i have plenty of power but it doesn't last long.

When you do measure your battery pack it most likely will be the answer to your question(s) including what the effect was and how your pack is holding up. When can you measure it?
