Clear Inline Hose Filter Canister

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.

    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.
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.
    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.

    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.
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).

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.

Great Filter Cannister
I was able to put it together along with a water softener cartridge in minutes. No more water spots after rinsing my car.

Spot-free car washes
I have very hard water where I live (western Chicago suburb) and have always had problems with water spots. The outside spigot on my house isn't connected to our softened water, so it's very hard. I had pretty much given up on washing my car at home. When we bought our new car (a dark blue VW GTI) I really wanted to be able to wash it myself. Of course, the dark color made the water spots really stand out. So I searched online and found this water softener. I thought maybe it would help enough that I could wash the car myself. It works even better than I expected. It virtually eliminates the hard water spots (even on my dark colored car). It's a really wonderful product, and also very well made. I highly recommend it.
ProsVirtually eliminates hard water spots even with very hard water. Well made - solid plastics and brass fittings
ConsNot a big deal, but one of the fittings was loose. After I tightened it no problems.

Product design has changed. Make sure fittings are secured.
This product is a replacement for a canister I ordered several years ago. The worn canister has heavy duty brass fittings that worked as designed. The replacement uses lighter duty brass fittings and the inlet fitting has a twist-style like that found on a typical water hose. This fitting is quite prone to leaking unless the connection is good and tight; after that, it works fine. The outlet fitting also needs to be heavily tightened. Even after doing that, it has a slow trickle - still not sealed, but not nearly as bad as it was.
ProsDoes a great job and is a good design. It's a must if you have severe hard or bad quality water.
ConsA change in lighter duty fittings on this product is a surprising draw-back to Autogeek's normally top-notch product line-up.

Clear filter canister
Only issue I had with this product is the inlet connector, you must turn your connecting hose into it, rather than turning the retaining ring on the unit or it will leak badly.

soft water filter
California, home to hard water. Tired of water spots, I bought the water softener from Auto Geek. Problem solved! It works great. Used P21s auto shampoo (from Auto Geek). As I sprayed the car off, the bubbles took their sweet time coming off, a sign of soft water. No water spots and a great shine. I recommend this water softener to anyone with a hard water problem. I also recommend P21s. Very soft working, never harsh. Beats any other similar product that I have ever used. Thanks Auto Geek!
