Solar charger setting

I currently have my solar controller set to hold absorption for 1 hour at 14.6V. I wonder if there would any danger or plus/minus to just set it to 14.4V till it either can not hold due to the sun or till amps get to 0.5% capacity.

These are 6V wet cell so there is a con of needing to check the water level more often. But I bet after a while I learn how often they are going to need water (currently they need water about every 3 months).

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
