    Hi Kev. Yep, I've got one and it's excellent, does exactly what it says it will. I've got a particle tester (forget the posh term) and our water is normally terrible for washing cars, water marks everywhere. I used to have a more expensive filter from another company but found the one from Race Glaze is far better.

    Full disclosure - I know Mark who owns Race Glaze well...…….. but the numbers don't lie - the Race Glaze filter was far more effective and took out more particles, lasted longer, was cheaper and is rechargeable (you don't need to replace the whole thing when it stops working, just the stuff inside). I highly recommend them

    I also have one that I bought from Mark at More Than Polish/Race Glaze. Does what it says on the tin. Have now had it two years using it every couple of months during the summer for final rinse and haven't had to replenish it yet.

    Money well spent

    Thanks for the feed back.
    Are you using them for just your final rinse or your whole wash cycle?

    I snow foam first and can't see the point in filtered water there. After that I use filtered water to rinse off the wash but warm non-filtered water with car shampoo in the buckets (2 buckets, obviously...ÖÖÖ)

    No point wasting the resin for the washing. I just switch over for the final rinse.

    I have one of these from Mark and it still leaves spots on my car so still have to dry it down with a towel.
    Leaves horrible tide marks on the 458 front aero wings as it is a concave shape so a small puddle collects there. So if I forget to soak up the water a nice mineral ring remains.
    Donít have a particle reader so donít know how well it is working or ever worked. Only had it 2 years I think and itís not used that often so the resin should still be good.
    Just my experience.

    Buy a particle checker to make sure it is working OK. Mark sells them but I bought one from Amazon for about 10 quid. Also useful for checking my home water softener is working properly.
