Post Coolant Flush Burping

How long should I expect to keep burping and topping off after flushing the coolant? I did the full deal (vc-9, distilled water, CAT ELC, & coolant filter installation) about 300 miles ago. I am still adding a small amount of water every couple of days. Am I burning coolant or am I still in the burping mode?

Same thing with me. It's been about 300-350 miles, and still have to add coolant occasionally. I've checked for leaks (since I installed the coolant filtration system), and found none

Yeah I have about 600 on mine after deleting the egr and flushing it and still feel like I hear burping from the degas bottle when I shut it down. Has me a little worried I have a blown head gasket.
