|Pure water creates a clean, spot-free finish on your vehicle!|
Water can be your vehicle’s best friend and its worst enemy. Water is necessary to clean your vehicle but pesky water spots can really ruin a glossy paint finish. The culprit is not the water itself; rather it’s all the minerals that exist within every drop of water. These minerals remain on the paint long after the water has evaporated and they etch permanent spots into the finish.
Prevent water spots before they start with the Clear Inline Hose Filter Canister with the Water Softener Filter Cartridge. Water naturally contains a long list of minerals and sediment that are not filtered out at the water treatment plant. If you have well water, then you’ve really got minerals in your water. The Clear Inline Hose Filter Canister is a compact unit that attaches directly to your hose and removes unwanted minerals and sediment as the water passes through.
Minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium, are what constitute “hard water”. Hard water is responsible for water spots, poor-lathering shampoo, and that green ring around your bathtub. The calcium and magnesium actually harden inside pipes (called “scale”) and on other surfaces, including your vehicle. When you rinse with hard water, you could be dousing your vehicle with hard mineral deposits. The only way to prevent hard water deposits is with a water softener.
The Clear Inline Hose Filter Canister can be fitted with either a water softener or a filter cartridge to give you clean, clear water for washing your vehicle.
Sediment is rust or sand that is inside water pipes. A broken water main miles and miles away can allow sand to enter your water supply. Likewise, a little rust anywhere along the water line can flake off into the water. This is why your household faucets have filters. Needless to say, sand and rust hitting your paint finish should be avoided. A filter will remove fine sediment and protect your vehicle as you wash it.
Water Softener Cartridge (not included) – This cartridge neutralizes calcium and magnesium in the water, thereby eliminating hard water. Your car shampoo will lather better and your vehicle will be free of those nasty water spots. This cartridge can be renewed and reused indefinitely.
The Clear Inline Hose Filter Canister is made of durable plastic with hose-adapter fittings already installed on the unit. You will need one hose to deliver incoming water and one hose to take the water from the filter to its final destination (your vehicle).
A water softener works by replacing the calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions. Sodium ions are “soft”. They don’t produce scale and they don’t stain. They change the actual texture of the water, making it feel “slippery”. This causes water to sheet off the vehicle more effectively. Water that remains on the vehicle will not leave spots.
Sediment Filter Cartridge(not included) – This cartridge is made of 25 micron spun poly. It traps fine sediment as the water passes through so that nothing hits your vehicle but pure water. If you don’t have a hard water problem, this cartridge is all you need.
If hard water is preventing you from achieving the perfect finish, invest in your paint’s future with the Clear Inline Hose Filter Canister. With two cartridge options, you can eliminate minerals and sediment in your water to render a spotless shine with every wash.
