why do new batteries in club car leak water on top of battery

This answer was rated:

why do new batteries in club car leak water on top of battery ? Batteries are not over full.
Batteries give off gas and moisture as they are charged, it is not unusual. Always add water AFTER charging, as the acid level will rise in a battery as it is charged and if water is added to full mark before charging, they will run over when charged. And do not charge with the caps off, always leave the caps on when charging. New batteries are often filled too full and upon the first charging they have tendency to "leak". Have a good day. Thanks.

Curtis thanks for your reply these batteries are not over filled before charge the seepage takes place after the cart has been run 10-15 minutes after the cart has been running.
That seems to be a strange occurrence! I've been around many sets of batteries over the years and I don't ever remember any that would seep when they were being used. As the battery is used , the acid is absorbed into the plates and the level goes down. Is it all the batteries, or one, more than the rest? Trojans? Exides? Interstate?
