    Spot Free water softener/Filtration system

    Hi all,
    Need some advice, has anyone tried and would recommend the Spot Free water softener/filtration system? I was considering purchasing the 1000 unit as ADS carries these. I do have some hard water, but before I go spending over 300 bucks on this, I was hoping for some advice.

    Thanks in advance,


    Tom

    You can also try the CRSpotless system.

    I see you have this in the pro detailers forum, not sure if you are a pro or not, but you might also try your local water softening companies. They usually will provide you with a DI tank that they will come and switch out when it is exhausted, which will likely be more economical, if you are using a lot of water.

    I am not a Pro, but thought it maybe the best place to post this as I figured It would get more responses.

    I guess I would consider myself a weekend enthusiast who is starting to get more and more customers from word of mouth and I am looking to improve upon my hobby with products and services offered.

    Again, thanks for the link, as I have ordered the smaller wall mounted unit (100 gallons).

    I apologize if im hijacking this thread...I kinda wanted to ask something based on the original question.

    If you have a mobile pressure wash system, is their a way you can hook a filter onto these to get a spot free rinse out of your mobile unit?

    Fill your water tank with the DI water water.

    Please keep us posted as to the effectiveness of the spot free rinse. I read the reviews online, but I would much rather hear a review from a trusted MOL member.

    I ended up getting the CRSpotless DI100WM which is the wall mount unit and put it in about a week ago. I have only used it once so far, I washed a car we are selling and it was dark outside. I was curious to see the results the next morning, only to wake up wtih 2" of snow on the car. I did notice when I used that water to fill up my wash bucket, the soap was much thicker that normal, that was noticeable as was when I rinsed the car as well.

    Since we now have two black vehicles and when it warms up a bit, I plan on doing a review on this system and letting the cars air dry. I will take pics and post my findings.

    A review would be great! I already have a whole-house water softener, but I still get spots when I let water dry. I'm hoping this system will help lower the TDS level in my water.
