The Filter Combo is a great package if you need to replace two filters in the Deluxe Filter System or if you want to try out each filter cartridge in your Clear Inline Hose Filter. Each cartridge improves your water quality in a different way. Read on to see why two filters are better than one.
1-Water Softener Cartridge
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.
1-Sediment Filter Cartridge
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.
The frequency with which you will need to replace the filters depends on the hardness and amount of sediment in your water. With the sediment filter, you can see how dirty the filter is inside the Clear Inline Hose Filter. The texture of your water will tell you when its time to recharge or replace your water softener cartridge. (See Filter Rejuvenating Tablets for more information.)
