Spotless water system

Spotless water system DEFAULT
Fully assembled and X5 washing about to begin, here is the first round of information...

I recommend quick disconnect fittings on the unit. I purchased mine at my local Wilco farm store. Here's why, the white plastic fittings that screw into the filters, covered in Teflon tape will turn too easy to be screwing hoses on/off you will end up having to wrestle a wrench and pliers. Plus I want to be able to break down this unit quickly for draining and storage.

The instructions say its easiest to screw in these big heavy filters with the stand sitting vertically vs laying the stand down. I disagree, it was too awkward with the stand on the floor, even with the stand on the workbench holding the filter up with one hand, trying to turn it with the other it was not going. I laid the stand down on its back on my workbench, with the stand handle up against the wall so the stand couldn't move, then with two hands on the filter was able to easily screw them on.



So pressure washer or not...manufacture recommends one. My gas pressure washer is rated 2.5 gallons a minute, the manufacturer says 2.5 gallons per minute max for this filter so that's fine. But my gas pressure washer is LOUD as hell, have to prime it, starting/stopping/starting, plus its overkill just for washing the X5 it doesn't have heavy caked on grime. The pressure washer was going to take the relaxing out of washing the X5.

So instead here is my favorite nozzle (the one that comes with the filter looks to be pretty cheap made in CHINA). I turned the nozzle flow valve to the lowest setting then timed filling up a gallon jug, it took 30 seconds on the nose to almost fill it so about 2 gallons per minute perfect.



This is what 2 gallons per minute looks like, plenty enough to wash and rinse the X5. I could even lower the pressure further to extend the life of the filter resin.

The manufacture says you will get 300 to 1200 gallons out of the resin depending on how crappy your water is. Using the lower number 300 gallons at 2 gallons per minute that's 2.5 hours of spraying.

The manufacture says you only need 1/4 turn of your faucet for the unit, they are about spot on there I tested it. With my nozzle adjusted to 2 gallons per minute I turned my faucet down until I could detect a drop in the pressure, it was 1/4 turn plus a smidgen to off. Knowing this I can now just adjust flow at my faucet allowing me to use any of the nozzle settings.

CR Spotless Water Deionization Systems

CR Spotless Water Deionization Systems

CR Spotless Water Deionization Systems prevent water spots caused by hard water. CR's filtration systems attach to the water hose to filter minerals out of the water before it touches your vehicle. No minerals = no water spots!

Benefits of CR Spotless:

  • You save time because there's no need to towel-dry!
  • You eliminate the risk of towel-induced swirls and fine scratches.
  • By preventing water spots, you're also preventing etching. Below-surface paint damage requires time-consuming compounding and, in some cases, paint repair. CR Spotless Water Systems save your paint!

CR Spotless Water Systems are easy to use. Hook the system up to your water hose. As water flows through the system, it is automatically "cleaned" of dissolved solids. The water that exits your nozzle is clean, de-ionized water that will not cause water spots!

Choose from 100 gallon medium output units for personal use or opt for the high output 300 gallon units for professional detailing. Wall-mounted and portable systems are available.
CR Spotless Water Systems work with replaceable resin cartridges. The TDS meter on the system gives you an accurate reading of the total dissolved solids in the water. When it reads 30 ppm or more, the cartridges need to be changed. An included water restrictor maintains the optimal flow rate of water to ensure that it is thoroughly cleaned as it passes through the resins.

Finally - a way to prevent water spots! Clean household windows, outdoor furniture, cars, boats, RVs, motorcycles, and ATVs using the CR Spotless Deionization Systems.

Spotless Car Wash Deionized Water System

By using one of the new conversion systems on your Spotless Car Wash Deionized Water System you will now not only put 40% more resin into the machine but by doing away with the cartridges (which often leak at the seals) your system will produce far more DI water that the current system.

How does it work?

What is required to convert a Spotless water DI systems to the new DI system is quite straight forward. You simply remove the cartridges from your Spotless water DI systems and install the new feeder tubes (see photo). Refit the blue outer containers (without using the cartridges) to the Spotless water DI systems and then screw the cartridge body back onto the housing with the feeder tubes inserted directly into the resin. This way your standard Spotless water DI systems machine will hold 40% more resin than it would if using the internal plastic cartridges.

We can also supply a 1/2 cubic foot bag of resin (equivalent to 3 Spotless cartridge refills) at approximately half the price of the Spotless resin. By using this system you will benefit from using 100% of the resin inside the housing as there will be no leaking seals to contaminate the DI water.

This will make the small DIC 10 unit produce as much DI water than the standard DIC 20, and the DIC 20 after conversion will now produce 660 gallons of DI water, that’s 260 gallons more (based on TDS of 110 ppm) . See the “how to convert your spotless system video”

    CR Spotless Water Systems

    those of you that are using this system, how many details do you think you are getting per refill?

    im trying to decide if I should get this or try some sort of pump sprayer with distilled water in it.

    I really just want a way to remove most surface dust and dirt before I start my washes on client cars. its so hot where im at that straight from the tap spots almost instantly, shade is not always an option for me.

    Re: CR Spotless Water Systems

    Life span of the resins is determined by how "dirty" your water is. If your raw water has very low dissolved solids you may get 50 washes (or more) on a pair of resin cartridges. But with very high dissolved solid numbers you may start showing high numbers on the post filter water after just a few washes.

    I have been using a sacrificial pre filter with my CR filters. It has greatly increased the life of my main big cartridges.

    I went with the clear garden hose filter gh102 and the filter that says it is for car washing fc024. I replace the small filter cartridge filter medium every five washes. It holds about 1/5 the amount in the big CR filters.
    Garden Hose Filters ? Pure Water Products, LLC

    Several people on here have actually made their own, quite elaborate non mixed resin filters with separate anion and cation filter tubes. By splitting the filter media it is actually possible to re-energize the material. But it's not very safe to do at home. You need a laboratory rubber smock, rubber acid proof gloves, a facemask. And someplace your wife won't catch you doing it.

    The best way to save money on the filter media refills sold here by AG is to wait for the best sale of the year and stock up.

    Buy an inexpensive TDS meter on Amazon (they're <$15) and test your water supply to see what your reading is.

    Then use this chart provided by CR Spotless to estimate the amount of treated water you can produce based on the quality of the water source. Obviously the dirtier your water is to begin with, the quicker the resin will wear out.

    Re: CR Spotless Water Systems

    The TDS meter I bought from Amazon says our water is 34 ppm, which means we have very clean water.

    But it's over the limit of 20 ppm for spotless water, so I bought a CR Spotless system a couple of years ago. I replaced the resin after a year, but only because the replacement resin had an expiration date. I was at 0.04 on the CR Spotless TDS meter. CR Spotless says to wait until the reading is above 0.19 before replacing the resin. I estimate that I could get 18–24 months of service from one resin refill if I waited that long, which I plan to do now.

    A CR Spotless system absolutely is the best drying aid, but it can't absolutely guarantee a spot-free finish. If there's a lot of dust or pollen in the air, those particles can land in the water droplets left on the car and leave spots. Also, if there's someone nearby using a blower to manage leaves and grass clippings, there'll be airborne dust and debris that can land into the remaining water droplets and leave spots.

    So leaf-blowing in the fall and heavy pollen in the spring can sabotage what the CR Spotless system is all about. An enclosed garage is one of the best detailing tools ever invented, so if you'll just scoot your vehicle inside after rinsing it with a CR Spotless system, you should be left with a spotless finish without having to do any drying with a towel or blower.

    I don't believe you need a CR Spotless system for prewashing. Consider prewashing with a rinseless or waterless wash.

    You will get more washes if you just use the CR Spotless for the final rinse.

    Re: CR Spotless Water Systems

    I have well water which is very high in Iron. I get around 120 PPM on the TDS meter. I use my CR unit from beginning to end of the wash, not just the rinse like many people do. I was surprised to get close to 20 complete washes out of a new resin pack. I won't wash a vehicle without it. Even at $150 for resin refills, it is worth it for the benefits of zero spots and no drying.

    120 ppm TDS is quite low.

    According to this chart...



    ... you should get around 300 gallons of treated water from the 100 gallon CR Spotless Unit and 700 gallons of treated water from the 300 Gallon CR Spotless Unit.

    If you have the 300 Gallon unit, and you get 20 washes out of your resin, that would be 35 gallons of water per wash. That seems high to me, but I have never really thought about how much water I might be using, so perhaps it is right?

    I mean I guess when I think about it, there is a lot of time spent pre-rinsing, rinsing away soap as I am working, and final rinse. My pressure washer claims 2 GPM, so that would be 17.5 minutes of rinsing... which still feels high... but maybe it isn't too far off.

    That means you could get a TON of use out of your resin if you were only doing a final rinse which lasted say, 5 minutes (10 gallons) or less.

    To elaborate on my previous post.

    I only use the filtered water for the final rinse. And even then it is hooked up to an electric pressure washer with the wide fan nozzle. And I do a plain hose water rinse first to wash all the residual soap off the car. The pressure washer CR filtered water final rinse just lets me take my time drying if it a hot dry day.

    I've seen that chart and originally was using the unit for the final rinse only. Problem I was having, especially on my Tundra which is huge and takes a while to wash, is that the unfiltered water would dry before I could finish. I would then be left with spots, especially on the glass. I live at 4K feet elevation and the sun gets pretty intense and doesn't leave much work time before the water evaporates. I may start doing the wash in the evenings when the sun is starting to set and that may leave me enough time to use the DI unit for final rinse only. Either way, for me it is money well spent.

CR Spotless unboxing and first use!!!

It’s a pain to wash your car and dry it as best as you can, only to find spots and drips left over from water you didn’t catch. CR Spotless Water Systems says it has a solution that will put an end to all water spots. The company’s Spotless Water System features two filter cartridges, which it says will remove minerals from the water and deionize it, as well.

We sampled the DIC-20 High Output Rolling System to see if we could really “wash, rinse and walk away” and get a spotless car. Assembly of the system went quickly, taking about 15 minutes with two editors doing the work (I’ll avoid a “how many editors does it take” joke here). It was a fairly simple job, but some of the pieces were a bit heavy and awkward to put into place.

Our test car was Autoweek’s long-term Chrysler 200S, which had accumulated lots of bugs and parking-garage dust since its last wash. To see how much of a difference the system made, we washed the car twice. The first time was with regular water and automotive detergent, for which we followed the directions on the bottle; we dried the car with towels. This wash resulted in a few groups of water spots. Then we took the 200S for a spin and kicked up some dust before washing it again -- this time with the CR Spotless system.

Justine Woodard

After hooking up the system and replacing the hose sprayer (the system requires a multisetting nozzle), we ran the water awhile to clear as much of the old water out of the hose as we could. Using the deionized water in the bucket with the soap to wet down the car, the second wash commenced.

We followed all the instructions included with the system before taking the 200 outside and “just walk(ing) away to let it air dry.” At this point, the skepticism in the office was growing.

Drying time was short because it was a sunny day with a nice breeze; it only took about half an hour. Alas, no spots! (We did find a few little ones where water collected with dirt trapped under body panels, but otherwise, no spots!) Unfortunately, there were streaks. Quite a few of the 200’s body panels were covered in visible streaks. We’re not sure what caused the streaks, but there were none on the first wash.

The streaks bummed us out a bit, but after calling the company to see what may have gone wrong, we decided to give the car a third washing.

Joe Grove

For the third wash, we used the same soap, hose and spigot in an attempt to keep the conditions as similar as we could. The third wash went quick, scrubbing and then rinsing. On the advice of the company, we rinsed the car for several minutes longer than in the previous attempt. They also suggest using the hose settings “fan,” “center” and “flat” to spray water in a brooming manner, using water to sweep the tainted soap and debris off the car. From there, we left the car to dry and the waiting game began.

A while later it was dry and spot- and streak-free! The biggest problem with our first attempt was not rinsing the car off enough, so be sure to budget plenty of time for thorough rinsing with the ultra-pure CR Spotless water.

The DIC-20 system we used retails for $449.99, but can be ordered from Amazon for $429 with free shipping. That's still not cheap, but if you run a professional car-cleaning business or simply want the best possible wash for your baby, the CR Spotless Water System delivers on its promise.
