I wondered about warming it up but then saw a warning on their site about putting it too near to heat.

Ive emailed the manufacturer to see what their advice is. I'll post on here when I hear back.

Another vote for Purity X here - surprised it took so long to appear on the list!

So easy to apply and good shine, beading and protection. Applied via a lance makes large vehicles a breeze!

Not sure on average life. My original went after about 18 months I would guess. If it's only occasional pulsing and you've ruled out the water flow a clean and re-grease of the valve wouldn't hurt.

Have you considered Gyeon WetCoat?

Used this for the first time at the weekend and it seems really good. Just spray on and pressure wash off. Couldn't be simpler or quicker.

Was the car supplied/sold with 'paint protection'? Maybe he is saying that addtional waxing/polishing will void the warranty on that?? Just picking up on the use of 'their coating'.
