Detailing Water filters

    I've seen on Amazon and eBay how you can buy water filters that you connect between your outside tap and the hose. It seems like a useful tool for people that live in hard water areas (like me) and the main selling point appears to be you don't have those dreaded stains on your car if you wash it without drying afterwards.

    The ones that I've seen cost around £80-£100. I know that drying the car is clearly a cheaper way to avoid the problem but I was just wondering if anyone's ever bothered to use these water filters? Or what they contain to justify such a high price?

    Never thought of using one of those. It is quite expensive though.

    Yeah! Before I checked the prices I thought they would only be a few quid... Imagine my surprise when I found out lol

    I've had a couple and still use one when I'm in a rush. My latest one is refillable.

    I use the aqua gleam filters, agree that they are expensive but they do work, just use for the final rinse only.
