EEP battery question

i recently filled my battery with water, yet i forgot to use distilled and used tap water instead. is this going to be a problem? or is it nothing to worry about really?

Ouch....This could be a problem in the long run. I did that some time ago too to my 5. I ended up having to replace my battery because the electrolyte levels became too from contaminants.
