Default Watering System overwatering

I have a 2018 Precedent with a watering system for the batteries. For two years it worked great....put the syphon in distilled water bottle, attach to battery connection and pump the rubber bulb til it gets hard. I never had any issues, or water boiling over out the battery vents. Now, when I use it my batteries are always overflowing. I opened them and all were overfilled instead of having ½" of water over the top of the plates.

What causes this? How can I fix it?
Must I buy a new system?

Water filling system usually over fill the batteries. What is happening is the rubber gasket between the filling system and the battery is bad. If you can find out what system you have you should be able to find the rubber gaskets.
