Apologies if this seems a dumb question but I'm quite a novice when it comes to this type of thing.
Just connects to your hose using standard connectors. The water needs to come out of the filter into another length of hose with no connector/gunnerc on the end, let the water just run out over the paintwork
I just use 2 decent microfibre drying towels.
Ive used a muguiars water magnet towel and that lasted me some time.
Apologies for resurrecting this
Reason being I am fed up with water marks and the suggestions here are great but I'm wondering what size DI vessel?
Is this OK https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DI-Press...969334?hash=item1cafc46a36:g:U5gAAOxydB1SnzZI
Or the pet blower suggested earlier in the thread?
Or a second hand leaf blower?
+1 Highly recommend the AF towel where needed with a DI Vessel.
A medium sized di vessel should last you a while but do get a TDS METER to test the water as you want it to read about 0.00 ppm ideally
Just after I bought my M3 I had it detailed and ceramic coated. As I was about to leave my car with the detailer I placed the cars manual on the boot. He pointed his finger at me and scolded ‘’All contact is bad contact’’. This is so true as its contact with the paintwork (poor washing and drying techniques) that causes swirls and scratches. I’ve always used a pet blower to chase the water off the car but a while ago bought a water filter. These are great for the final rinse after which you can go indoors and drink tea leaving the car to dry in the sun. As ‘Jacko 11’ says, do buy a TDS meter to monitor the condition of the filter medium.
Are there any cons with the air blowers other than price?
Buy the one I did from eBay price not an issue, pet blowers are around 50quid. No cons from using it for the last year.
I also use 0ppm DI vessel window cleaning filter for last stage so nice clean filtered water which means very minimal water spotting if you miss somewhere.
This is what i use and i can tell you the car is drier than dry after using that. No water marks and nothing touches the paint work to even remotely mark it!
