DI water vessel

Post by Supshon »

I’m thinking of buying a DI water vessel for the final rinse after washing my car , being a black car it dries with water marks If I don’t dry It with micro fibre drying towels, dabbing them on the paint , the car has been ceramic coated , what would be the best size to get and how long should it last , I’m hoping I can rinse it off and leave to dry without touching it

Anything bigger becomes a bit unmanageable to lug/refill. Some folks put two inline.

In this sort of weather, you may find that rinsing as you do your hand wash (after any pre-wash) is the best way.

Another option...I rinse my car with 15ml of dishwasher rinse aid in a watering can. Then dry with a large microfibre cloth...

I’ve just bought a 6.6l one at the beginning of the month so can’t comment on the longevity but I have really hard water round my way and the water spot are reduculous.

It works really well to be fair I still go over it and dry it mostly but you don’t have to go mad with it as the small stuff just vanishes
The biggest benifit is it makes it far more chilled to do as normally you can’t even finish rinsing the car before the other side has Started to dry now you can wander round the car at your leisure

I purchased a 24L DI vessel a few years ago. It's quite large. I just use it all the time pre and post wash, probably a little bit wasteful but I haven't noticed any water spots. Saying that, I went looking for my TDS meter yesterday but couldn't find it. People suggest that the resin needs replacing every 12-18months.
