Deluxe Clean Water Filter Kit
This 2-step filtration system prevents two of the most common culprits of micro-marring.

You wouldn’t rub sand on your paint finish; why would you wash your vehicle in sediment and hard water? The Deluxe Clean Water Filter Kit includes everything you need to set up a simple two-step filtration system for car washing.

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.

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.

A one-step, in-line filter will remove one of these problems, but what if your water has both sediment and hard water? Well water almost certainly contains sediment and minerals because it is not filtered through a water treatment plant. But even city water can contain both sediment and hard water. That’s because many water treatment plants add lime to the water to raise the pH in order to spur the chemical process that removes debris from the water. Lime adds to hard water.



In short, most of us need a two-part filtration system to ensure that the water coming out of the garden hose is truly clean. The Deluxe Clean Water Filter System is a comprehensive two-step, in-line filter system that both removes sediment and softens the water. This one package is all you need to ensure you’re washing your vehicle in clean, soft water.

There’s no point in preventing water spots if you’re using the wrong towels! We’ve included two top quality microfiber towels to ensure that your paint finish is safe from scratches while you detail.



The Deluxe Clean Water Filter System includes:

2 Clear Inline Hose Filters
Keep your wash water perfectly clean with these easy-to-install, in-line hose filters. Put a sediment filter cartridge into one unit and a water softener cartridge in the second unit. This two-step system cleans and then softens the water as it travels from the water source to its final destination. Brass hose-adapter fittings ensure long-lasting performance. The sturdy plastic housing allows you to see when the sediment filter needs changing. Each unit is 12 inches tall and about 4 ˝ inches at its widest point. Each includes a wrench to assist in changing the cartridges and a mounting bracket.

1 Sediment Filter Cartridge
This cartridge is made of five micron spun poly. It traps fine sediment as the water passes through so that nothing hits your vehicle but pure water. Sediment may include sand, rust, and hard water scale. If you don’t have a hard water problem, this cartridge is all you need to filter your water.

1 Water Softener Filter
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.

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.

2 ft. Water Hose & 3 ft. Water Hose
You will need three hoses total for a two-part filtration system. We’ve supplied two of them in this kit; just add your standard hose to complete the installation. This 3 ft hose is perfect for connecting the spigot and filter unit. Connect the 2 ft. hose between the two filter units. The small size of these hoses makes the installation look neat and organized by eliminating any unnecessary hose length.

2 lb. Filter Rejuvenating Tablets
Regenerate your water softener cartridge with these tablets. To use, pour the tablets into a plastic dishpan or bucket; use enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover the tablets with water. Put the softener cartridge in the water and let it soak overnight at least. The tablets will dislodge the calcium buildup on the resin and replace it with sodium. Replace the cartridge in the filter unit and it will be almost as good as new.

Microfiber Towels, 16 x 16 inches
Use these microfiber detailing cloths for drying, buffing, or as a finishing wipe down. Microfiber is designed to be light, strong, super-absorbent and quick drying. The fibers are non-abrasive, and are woven so tightly that it’s absolutely lint free and extremely durable. Unbelievably, these ultra-tough fibers are engineered to absorb seven times their weight in moisture.

The Deluxe Clean Water Filter System is a practical solution to hard water and sediment. The entire system can be attached to your hose and removed as needed. If you prefer to leave it in place, mount the two clear filters to the wall by the spigot. We recommend attaching a Y-valve to the spigot so the filter system can remain connected when not in use.

Remember, if you’re washing your vehicle with unfiltered water, you could unknowingly be pouring hard water scale or sediment on the paint finish. The Deluxe Clean Water Filter System eliminates both culprits so the water that cleans your vehicle is truly clean.

Kit includes:
2 Clear Inline Hose Filters
1 Sediment Filter Cartridge
1 Water Softener Filter
2 Ft. Hose
3 Ft. Hose
2 lb. Filter Rejuvenating Tablets
2 Microfiber Towels, 16 x 16 inches

Setup isn't nearly as complicated as previously reviewed
September 28, 2014
So, I've only set this system up and have not officially used the product on the car yet (today is the first day). But I wanted to at least provide an initial review of the setup as it appears most people who have provided negative reviews seem to only harp on this. The setup couldn't be any easier. The hose that comes with it definitely could be more suitable or of better quality. However, it isn't difficult to pick up the short feeder hose/replacements that are typically installed on hose reels. I actually drilled a few holes in my large metal hose reel setup and mounted the filter right to the reel itself as it stays near the hose faucet. If you can't set this thing up properly, even with a little tinkering, then you probably shouldn't be washing your car either.
Pros:
Easy setup Good Quality

very poor quailty
July 16, 2014
hoses that connect the two canisters is a joke. When I took it out of the box I was shocked at how poor the quality was. Was not expecting that from this company. Had to rebuild all the fittings since they all sprayed every where. Would not buy it again.

Crystal clear water
May 28, 2014
I have well water so I always have to go to a car wash. If not the hard water leaves white spots and run marks all over. This product was so easy to install and use. No more hard water coming out of the hose so I can now wash my vehicle at my house no problem. Great product.

Leaky fittings

we had to upgrade to better fittings to stop the leaking, otherwise as far as we can tell it works well....

Don't leave out in winter...
November 26, 2013
This worked well the couple of times I got to use it...leaked a bit but didn't seem to have an appreciable effect on the water pressure. I had it mounted outside, the temperature dropped pretty dramatically recently and pretty much every piece broke in some way due to the freezing temperatures. One of the canisters burst and the other ones connectors broke off. None of the pieces were salvageable. If you purchase this product, don't leave it out in freezing temperatures. Come next Spring, I'll be in the market for a new filtration system...a shame I blew $150+ on this system.

Worthless...IMO
September 16, 2011
The filter kit was presented to me from customer service when ordered as a way to prevent water spots. Followed the directions on set up and use. More water spots than before. Called tech support and was told that I still must dry the car, just that the water will be "softer". I should have invested in $150.00 worth of microfiber and waffle drying towels.

A must have!!!

We bought this for our shop in Arizona. Before we used to wash cars with straigh tap water which is very rich in sediments and minerals, so water spots were a HUGE problem, especially on black cars. After installing this filtering system, the amount of spotting was reduced by at least 80%, and the residual spots were removed by towel druing the vehicle. Softer water definitely gives you longer drying time, even in direct sun on a black car. We absolutely love this kit, money well spent. Thanks Autogeek. PS: Make sure the kit comes with the hose coupling rubber gasket, as ours didnt

skip it
July 29, 2008
Very dissatisfied. Maybe it's "user error" but having to constantly rejuvenate the resin every wash for poor results seems a bit absurd. It did work fairly well the first wash, if memory serves me correctly, but then it was all downhill. It is cheap compared to other systems meant to serve the same function, but apparently you get what you pay for.
