Flowrite overfilling battery

So I installed the flowrite system on my coach batteries and filled them today. I am a bit worried that it is overfilling my front battery as the system seems to fill the first set of cells, then the next set in the chain etc etc. Won't this over fill the first battery by the time it gets to the second battery?

No the floats in each cell rises when the cell reaches its full level. When the float rises it allows the water to flow to the next cell. It repeats this until all cells are full

That why you squeeze the filler ball until its hard. That means all cells are full

Exactly! If it’s your first time and you’ve not filled them regularly it might take a surprising amount of water. But keep pumping until it gets hard.
