Simplified battery watering
Special caps replace the original battery caps. Each cap has a float which cuts off the flow of water when the cell is full. The manifold distributes the water to the three cells in each battery.
The battery manifolds are connected together with rubber tubing. Each manifold has three connectors. The unused connectors are capped off.
A hand pump is connected to the manifolds with a simple connector, and the other end goes in the bottle of distilled water. When the pumping gets hard, the batteries are full.
