Default Re: instructions for using a battery fill bottle?

CT is correct. If the distillation method is for ****, the distillate will be impure. Its not an argument until the name calling starts. When I buy distilled water at the store I am ASSUMING it has been prepared in a closely controlled system. The water collected from other means cannot make this claim. Making a claim that condensed water from a cooling coil is as pure as store bought distilled water is clearly untrue. Thank you for your interest.

GMan hope you don't think I am or was calling you names!! I don't see where I did. If I did it was purely unintentional and I apologize. Never said water from a cooling coil was is as pure as store bought! It is not! At least I hope store bought is purer! Just stating that it is distilled water, never said PURE distilled water. It is good enough for batteries though.

Ok guys I think I am gonna break down and buy a $1.50 jug of distiller water.
I kinda thought that the dehumidifier water was a little too good to be true, and was surprised that I had not heard of that before.
I just don't wanna damage a $800 battery pack that is the heart of a sparky cart with kinda distilled water.
But anyone can make their own decisions about what they do...

Smart decision! It doesn't make sense to save a couple $$ on water if it risks reducing the life of your batteries. I use my cart 8 months out of a year and I go through only about 2 gallons of that expensive distilled water in that time. IT's cheaper than drinking water at the grocery store.

Actually I guessed that number; I haven't bought some in a while and I didn't check the price when I did...

As CT said, water from a dehumidifier is "good enough", albeit probably not quite as pure as store-bought. Anecdotes are not data, but: My first electric cart went down the road with batteries that were over 7 years old and still going strong. The 2 golf cart batteries on my travel trailer are about 10 years old now and seem to be working fine. The ONLY water any of them have seen has been that from my dehumidifier. I don't feel that I'm putting my battery pack in any danger of premature failure due to "improper" water.

It was nice of beau to give us actual NUMBERS, not conjecture as to the relative purity of store-bought distilled vs. dehumidifier vs. Brita-filtered water. Not sure what impurities he's measuring, but at least there's some numbers.

Using a PPM Meter of reasonable quality. The condensate impurities would likely be metal from the condenser coils, water with this PH tends to be corrosive. This is part of the reason our tap is 200+ppm. It is made more alkaline to prevent pipe corrosion with the inclusion of Calcium and Magnesium.
