--Deep Cycle/Industrial Battery Make Up Water: Use the DI water produced by the CR Spotless System™ to top off and refill your batteries.
What is a “spot-free” rinse? Water contains Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium and other minerals. So-called “water spots” are actually caused by the minerals that are left behind when “dirty” water evaporates. De-ionization removes all of these minerals so there is nothing left to spot when pure water evaporates, leaving you with a “spot-free” finish.
What is De-Ionized Water? Deionization is a method used most often by laboratories to produce purified water on demand. All naturally-occurring water contains dissolved mineral salts. In solution, salts separate into positively-charged cations and negatively-charged anions. Deionization can reduce the amounts of these ions to very low levels through the process of ion exchange. Cations are removed by cation exchange resin. It replaces sodium, calcium, magnesium, and other cations with hydrogen ions (H+). This exchange produces acids which must be removed or neutralized by anion exchange resin. This is also why you must not use the system outside of its operating parameters or you could cause damage to your work surface. Two general types of anion resin are used for deionization: weak base resin and strong base resin. Weak base resin adsorbs strong acids, while strong base resin exchanges chloride, sulfate and alkaline anions for hydroxide ions (OH-). The hydrogen ions from the cation exchange process combine with the hydroxide ions from the anion exchange process to form water (HOH or H2O). Because the deionization process is so effective, the water quality is usually measured by the water's resistance to electric current (in OHM-cm). The end result is purified water that won't leave mineral deposits - water spots - on your car!
Do I have to use a restrictor? Yes, you need to keep the flow rate of the water at about 2 to 2.5 gallons per minute or less to allow the resin to thoroughly clean the water. Using the supplied garden spray nozzle on either the Flat (Fan) or the Center setting will restrict the flow properly. Pressure washers do a great good at restricting the flow as long its gpm does not exceed 2.5.
How does it work? As the water passes through the resin all the spot causing minerals in the water cling to the resin beads and the clean water continues on to provide spot free water.
Will it remove my wax? No, it will not remove your wax and you do not have to worry about tiny scratches cause by drying towels or chamois.
Will the resin go bad if I don't use it? Yes it is possible. After long periods of non-use there is a possibility that algae can form and foul the resin. If it is going to set for a long period of time with out use (60-90 days) we suggest that you remove the resin cartridges, allow them to drip dry and dry the inside of the blue housings to prevent algae growth.
Do I need to use a special soap? No, just use your normal soap and make sure you rinse thoroughly wherever water can be trapped.
Can I drink the water? No, please do not drink the water. Pure water has no nutritional value.
Can I hard plumb it into my house? No, it can harm some of your interior household plumbing.
The system is all hooked up but no water is coming out? The resin cartridges are in upside down. The white cap goes at the bottom of the blue housing.
The meter does not seem to be working. It only shows all zeros? That is perfect, the meter will read 000 for 95% of the resins life expectancy. Once you start to see numbers, it will increase rapidly.
The meter reads “Err”. Re-seat the meters wire harness in the top of the meter.
Does the resin have a shelf life? Yes, the resin has a shelf life of approximately 18 months before it will start to lose effectiveness.
How do I store the system? If you are not going to use the system for a couple of months please drain the water out of the system and let the resin cartridges drip dry. Place the resin cartridges in a cool dry area.
