How do you fill golf cart batteries?
Similarly, it is asked, how often do you need to add water to golf cart batteries?
Adding water after charging prevents acid from spilling over. You'll want to add water to 1/2 inch from the top of the battery. 2) We recommend service once or twice a year. 3) Always use distilled water so you don't add additional minerals into your battery.
One may also ask, should I leave my golf cart plugged in all the time? You can leave the charger plugged in even when you're gone for long periods of time (months), and your batteries will not die because they'll get a charge from time to time to keep the volts up.
Subsequently, question is, what happens if golf cart batteries run out of water?
When the battery is discharged, the water level that contains electrolytes becomes lower. This condition is called sulfation, and when this happens, you can no longer recharge the battery. To avoid this, you should refill the water in your golf cart battery regularly.
How much does it cost to fill golf cart batteries?
Fill battery cells (aka water fill holes) with distilled water (not tap water) ¼ to ½ inch above the plates. With ¼ inch of water you'll have to check your batteries more often, but at ½ inch you'll likely have more acid accumulation on the tops of the batteries. Either level is acceptable; it's really your call.
