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 Spot Free Water De-Ionizer 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 is particularly hard? 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 Spot Free Water De-Ionizer Kit 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 Spot Free Water De-Ionizer Kit includes:
2 Spot Free Water De-Ionizer Canisters
Keep your wash water perfectly clean with this easy-to-install, in-line hose filter. It installs between two hoses to filter sediment out of the water and to soften the water. The sturdy plastic canister allows you to see when the sediment filter needs changing. The entire unit is 12 inches tall and about 4 inches at its widest point. It includes a wrench to assist in changing the cartridges and a mounting bracket.
2 Spot Free Water De-Ionizer 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.
3 ft. Water Hose
This 3 ft hose is perfect for connecting the spigot and filter unit. The small size of this hose makes the installation look neat and organized by eliminating any unnecessary hose length.
2 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 Spot Free Water De-Ionizer Kit 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 Spot Free Water De-Ionizer Kit eliminates both culprits so the water that cleans your vehicle is truly clean.
