Hard water and sediment are most likely responsible for the spotted, etched vehicle sitting in your driveway right now. You can buy all the best wash tools and shampoos, but this is a water quality issue. It requires preventative action to save your vehicle’s paint finish!
Water naturally contains a long list of minerals and sediment that are not filtered out at the water treatment plant. If you have well water, then you’ve really got minerals in your water. The Clear Inline Hose Filter Canister is a compact unit that attaches directly to your hose and removes unwanted minerals or sediment, depending on your cartridge choice.
The Clear Inline Hose Filter has two filter cartridge options. The Clean Water Filter Kit contains both cartridges, so you can determine what your water requires and address the problem. You’ll receive everything you need for a single stage inline filtration system in The Clean Water Filter Kit.
The kit includes:
1 Clear Inline Hose Filter Canister
Keep your wash water perfectly clean with this easy-to-install, in-line hose filter. It installs between two hoses to filter sediment out of the water or to soften the water, depending on which cartridge you insert. Brass hose-adapter fittings ensure long-lasting performance. The sturdy plastic canister allows you to see when the sediment filter needs changing. The entire unit is 12 inches tall and about 4 ½ inches at its widest point. It includes a wrench to assist in changing the cartridges and a mounting bracket.
1 Sediment Filter Cartridge
This cartridge is made of 25 micron spun poly. It traps fine sediment as the water passes through so that nothing hits your vehicle but pure water. Sediment may include sand, rust, and hard water scale. If you don’t have a hard water problem, this cartridge is all you need to filter your water.
1 Water Softener Filter Cartridge
This cartridge neutralizes calcium and magnesium in the water, thereby eliminating hard water. Your car shampoo will lather better and your vehicle will be free of those nasty waterspots. This cartridge can be renewed and reused indefinitely.
A water softener works by replacing the calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions. Sodium ions are “soft”. They don’t produce scale and they don’t stain. They change the actual texture of the water, making it feel “slippery”. This causes water to sheet off the vehicle more effectively. Water that remains on the vehicle will not leave spots.
3 Ft. Hose
Installation of one Clear Inline Hose Filter Canister requires two hoses. Insert the 3 ft. hose between the spigot and the filter. This small hose makes the installation look neat and tidy because there’s no long hose to coil up. From the filter, connect your regular hose to complete installation.
2 lb. Filter Rejuvenating Tablets
Regenerate your water softener cartridge with these tablets. To use, pour the tablets into a plastic dishpan or bucket; use enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover the tablets with water. Put the softener cartridge in the water and let it soak overnight at least. The tablets will dislodge the calcium buildup on the resin and replace it with sodium. Replace the cartridge in the filter unit and it will be almost as good as new.

The Clean Water Filter Kit is your solution to water spots and micro-marring produced during washing.

This simple, in-line filtration system is an easy way to eliminate the threat of unclean wash water.
