as i recall I had topped off with distilled water probably 3 or 4 times over the years & never let it get fully discharged
I assume you meant 27DC? We used one for the starting battery for quite a while, not a bad battery at all. When if finally died I replaced it with a 24DC Costco Interstate and it lasted barely a year. It appears that Costco has been changing vendors on a lot batteries, and it appears the DC series in one of them that have gone, probably, to Exide, which for me mean complete junk based on past history. So beware of the new ones and check out the reviews of them which have gotten really, really, bad recently based on what I found when ours died so soon.
I was going to replace with a NAPA (East Penn) DC24 but decided to go instead with a pure starting battery in gp24 from them. East Penn seems to be the only ones getting consistently good reviews anymore with Johnson Controls also slipping.
I have a thread on here about the Costco batteries from just recently.
