    Thanks guys.

    The DIY route looks good, as I'm a tight git, but too much hassle .

    Deionised is different. It needs to be distilled as this has all the crap. Taken out.

    Yep, I remember taking the cell covers off the battery and topping up

    Isn’t distilled water the same as ironing water?

    Unfortunately not .
    I've checked into it.

    De ionising water is used for ironing....unless your in my house, then it's tap water .

    Distilled water

    Halfords sell ironing water, sorry distilled for batteries not irons of course. Honest my mum still uses it.

    Edit. wrong Halfords top up water is de-ionised water and itís £2.80 with a trade card
