Spotless Car Wash

Today at my fellow neighbor' driveway I saw the CR Spotless Water car wash system. This is a deionizator and it is compact and simple to use.

Below is a picture from Amazon and eBay. My fellow neighbor is very happy with this, and there are a lot of positive reviews about it on the Internet.

They are available in 100 gallon flow or 300 gallon flow, with price of $300 and $400 relatively.

I am going to order one for myself, and this thread is a share with any our forum members, in order to eliminate water spots especially on black color Interstates, or to save forty buck at every car wash station.

If anybody has a knowledge what is better to buy - 100 gallon or 300 gallon for an occasional private driveway usage - please share your knowledge!

They also have a filter


IMHO...
All Griot's stuff is first rate.

Car soap, bucket of water, sponge, several clean soft towels and bit of elbow grease. Cost est. $10. Results in a spotless shiny Airstream. A plus is some quality exercise doing something I like to do.

CR Spotless, fantastic. Wash and then rinse with the CR. No drying required. No spots. See a nice video over at www.great-escape.us.

Thanks guys. Seems like another thing I need to spend money on. It is timely as I was dreading having to figure out how to wash and dry my new Interstate.

There are two different CR systems is size of flow: 100 gallon and 300 gallon. I was not able to figure difference between them, beside the size of containers and the 100 buck in price.

Amirm, when you are ready to buy it I'm sure you'll make a research, share it with me.

+1 and it's not the slightest bit difficult. Drying gives me a good upper body workout. Even a semi-cooperative teenager can execute this function, as this photo attests. My girl waxed the driver's side of our Interstate and I did the passenger side. The Invisible Interstate with hyper-reflective finish courtesy of Rejex. If not for the wheel trim and backup mirror sticking out, you'd barely know it was even parked there.

In many areas, even if the water can be cleaned of minerals and particulates, natural dust in the air will settle onto the vehicle and stick to it in the time it takes to air dry. Better to towel it, I think.

I thought the 100 gal and 300 gal referred to the amount of water used before the cartridge needed refilling/replacing.

I use deionized water supplied by Evoqua (formerly Siemens). Much larger than the CR Spotless setup but essentially the same thing.

Started using it 6 or so years ago when I got my black sports car that I wanted to try an avoid swirl marks from drying with towels. Works great on the interstate and the black windows require no wiping and come out perfect every time.

Does anybody know the difference between 100 Gal and 300 Gal canister? Is a performance the same?

Pick me, pick me, I know this answer: 200 gallons.



Forgive my moment of juvenile behaviour. Back to the previously scheduled thread.

Forgiven. They don't have 200

So, no one knows... Going to order 300 then.

Operationally they are the same. 100 is much shorter. Resin, since there is less, will need more frequent replacement. But if you are planning to take it with you I would probably get the 100 size. Much more portable. Replacing resin isn't that hard to do.
