My research so far, tends to suggest that 0 to 10 ppm is the optimum, with any higher figures warranting a change of resin. Anyone used the water at above 10 without spotting ?

Water filter

Been looking all day at options, Race Glaze, Pure Final Rinse, Unger or D Aqua 11l. Still can't decide. Ahhh!

I've recently picked up a 14 Litre race glaze and am very happy with the results. No water spots at all and no flow problems. Have not owned it long enough to comment on how long it will go before the resin needs changing. The larger units are meant to be more efficient, so if I get 1000L+. That's great for me.

Also a shout out to Mark. I called him in the morning and asked him if he could get me a unit in time for me to do a job on the same day. He managed to find me a unit close by that I could go pick up within a couple of hours.

Question. Where is best to connect the DI filter. At the tap then use a hose, hose full of crap water before the pure. Or at the end of the hose and more it around the car as it’s rinsed.

To be fair they’re not as expensive as i had imagined them to be. Do you mind me asking which one you bought and why you chose that one?

The general principle is to minimise wastage of the filtered water.

So, when I had a 7L unit I had a 5ft hose out of it and carried it round the car with me. I could only ever possibly waste 5ft of purified water. Other end of it ran back to the tap.

Now with the 14L I have mounted up I have a dedicated hose running out to the car wash area from it, about 30ft, but make sure that hose doesn't drain itself. It just change the hose running from my tap to either my PW or the Filter.

Hope that helps
