Ordered 100ml of CarPro Hydro2 the other day and wanted to give it a try today. So after a good wash and decon, rewash and thorough rinse I made up the mixture of 30ml Hydro2 and 90ml of deironised water in a spray bottle.
I could tell that from 120ml I wasn't going to be able to be too liberal with it but tried to roughly get it all over.
Turned on the pressure washer and straight away there was some white spray coming away from it that went clear quite fast (I'm guessing this was just excess product) and the beading qualities came straight after that. Really impressed by it, though next time I may probably use 40ml product or slightly more water to make it go a bit further.

For a temporary fix before finding time to give the car a full going over or for someone who wants protection but doesn't have the time to do it. This product really ticks the boxes. Great product.

I'd totally agree with the above comments after trying hydro2 recently its a very good easy fix, only downside a bit expensive, but other than that big thumbs up!!

I love hydro2 for quick sealing my own car, I find the best way to make it go further is mist the panel, then wipe with a wet sponge(the popular 'grout' sponge is perfect for this)
then rinse it off.

Spreads a bit further with less waste product (the white you see coming off is the excess hydro2 and carrier indeed)

This is just a make do till I can give it a good going over sometime in the new year, but for ease of use and the quality of finish it can't be under estimated and a really great product.

I agree mate will be interested to see how long it lasts, I do think its a little expensive though if it only last 2 months

I really think Carpro are missing a trick, the largest size represents good value, but few will spend £70 ish on an untried product, reduce the price of the 100mil and the orders will increase measurably.

Thanks for the feedback,
you can buy the 50ml bottle , same as any of our products samples bottles.
50ml can do you 200ml ready solution , 2 cars coating . so 6.5 pounds for 2 cars with super easy application , mainly in cold winter time without the need to touch the surface i think is very fair .
btw- no need distilled water . normal water is fine too.

Cheers. I always used de-ironised water with exception to car shampoo.
I think the price is good and fair.
Would dilution further make it less durable or affect it's bonding. I ask as with making 30ml product and 90ml water there wasn't much to spray on the vehicle and constantly felt I would run out any second and the spray head kept hunting for product to spray when using at a slight angle. At least 1:4 or 1:5 if I had product left over, I could go back over ceratin areas I felt needed a little more.

yes you can dilute it more, though it will affect the durability

I've just done two of our cars with 100ml. there was waste as it was a windy day.

Very impressed with the product. Considering I only had 2 hours to clean and sort two cars they both are now very shiny and feel very slick as well.

The true test of course will be how they handle the new few months of winter weather

On a windy day- try using a narrow jet (as opposed to the atomiser jet) and then move product around the panel with a sponge/mitt/glove/hand before rinsing. This gets the full 'squirt' on the panel and then ensures that the product is covering the full panel. :thumb:
