Some autoparts stores or hardware stores etc may have distilled water. Got to think out of the box.

I get my distilled water from one of the larger water stores. They have their own distiller on site. Usually they have enough in the tank to dispense, but sometime they may have a run so you may have to wait awhile for another gallon to be finished. They also prepackaged a few gallons and have them sitting by the dispenser.

Thanks for the suggestions by all... I did try a couple auto stores (oriely's , auto zone etc) in my area and none have the water... Tomorrow I will try a few auto stores 20 or 30 miles away and see what they have. if nothing than I guess I will top them off slightly just to cover the plates with the machine water and hope I can find some distilled in the next couple weeks... Thank you all again for the ideas... everyone STAY SAFE,,,,THANKS

If you were close by I would offer you a gallon I have. Maybe someone close will offer....
Ask your store when the next delivery is. Or look up a battery distributor to call and check.

RO water is comparable to distilled water, so go for it.

Unless the plates are exposed, I would avoid using normal water at all costs.


Ditto on that ..... Give it a few days and you will find distalled in the stores again. also you might shop around there are alternative stores that may still have stock

Drug stores
Dollar General
Grocery

Do not recall seeing it in auto stores but... never looked for it there.

My home RO system produces water that measures 2 ppm of total dissolved solids. Yours is likely comparable. I've been topping off batteries with it for years.
Your batteries will be happy as can be with RO water.

One of the local Walmarts had some bottled water a couple of days ago, it may have been spring water tho. Most of what they sell is. The trick is to get there around the time that they open the place, they restock at night and if you beat the idiots into the place you might find some

If you want to pony up, amazon should be able to drop that stuff at your door.
