Distilled water?

battery needs water. its a lead-acid one 200ah from ags.

Is this locally available?

or should i just use normal drinking water?

For batteries, you may collect rain water in a clean tray. Rain is a natural distillation process, only some dust gets added to it during rain fall. You can filter it to remove these dust particles.

collect your AC water!!! Thats the best and its clean and distilled! We use that for our batteries

Ac water contains more dust than rain water…

if your AC’s service is not done properly…otherwise AC residue water is a good option…

Use mineral water :D

Yes, you can use air conditioner’s water as it is distilled (condensed from the moisture of room). But, make sure, you filter it using a filter paper before poring it into batteries. It is necessary to filter out the dust.

I second that

The amount of pollution in air these days is very high. So rain water is not a good option because it absorbs acids from air.

If you want to use rain water collect water after 30 mins of rain.

Distilled water is available

unbranded Rs/- 10 per Bottle

Exide/AGS Rs/- 25 per Bottle

you can get it from selective Battery stores and some Petrol/service stations

+1 Valid Point

Do not use rain water or air-conditioner condensate water as a substitute for distilled water in lead acid batteries as these “free” sources contain both suspended solids (SS, like dust and other contaminants) and dissolved material (TDS) picked up from passage through the air or contact with surfaces. Also do not use mineral water as it has salts and minerals added to improve the taste of the water.

You can buy AGS branded distilled water (or similar brands by Exide, etc.) from battery and for about Rs 60-70 per liter. I tested AGS distilled water and found 0 ppm TDS compared with 400 ppm TDS in tap water.
