    Re: Which new product would be of interest to you?

    Personally I'd spring for the filter. Here's why...

    When washing a car I am often having to go back to certain areas to spend time on, or I will have to go back and wet a car while claying, or before I dry the surface I will spend time washing my wheels and tires.

    The problem in that case would be if it was a hot day out and/or if I was claying the car, I have to occasionally walk around the car and spritz it with water to keep it from drying and leaving waterspots.

    With just a soap spritzing to keep it wet while you're working on different areas or while claying wouldn't terribly effective.

    My 2 cents.

    As many others have said before, any of the above would be fine.

    Re: Which new product would be of interest to you?

    Assuming it isn't expensive, I'd be interested in a water softener type attachment because I don't understand how a car wash can effectively prevent water spots if you're rinsing your car.

    If it does prevent water spots it must then leave some sort of "film" behind and I wouldn't like that for my cleaning process. I would not purchase such a product at all, but I would buy a water filter attachment.

    I wouldn't be interested in a combination system either because that takes away my freedom to choose a car wash, and I like that option.

    I'd also like to add that such a filter system should be connected to the FAUCET end before connecting the hose, if invented.

    This adds the flexibility for your customers to choose their own hose nozzle, or have none at all. Remember if they're rinsing some customers will try to "sheet" the water off with a steady flow of water from the hose, so by having the filter on the faucet end of the hose, allows you to continue doing this.

    This is from 2004?

    Should this poll not be updated/discontinued? There already are hose attatchments out there.

    Re: Which new product would be of interest to you?

    Since using no-rinse to wash I don't find spotting to be a problem, even in extreme heat since one panel at a time is washed and dried. Same after claying. If you're going to polish, do water spots really matter? On my light color paint I didn't find it a problem before using no-rinse. I always either spray wax, paste or liquid wax or polish, then wax anyway and if there are any spots they come right off. Must be the M21!

    I certainly don't want to have to buy an attachment and replace filters/chemicals. I have a Mr. Clean and never bought new cartridges for it. The handle is cracked too from dropping it on the driveway. Personally I think it's junk. Didn't really notice a big difference in preventing spotting either.

    I voted for spot resistant soap. Any progress on this technology?

    Definitely any of the 3!

    After seeing some other threads about the crspotless to prvent hard water, it looks like it works good but seems a bit overpriced to me. I would think Meguiars could come out with something just as effective as the crspotless system but far less costly for the average car enthusiast that enjoyes washing their own cars and for the detailers.

    I see this thread was started in 2004 is there any update on this yet?

    You can do it Meguiars I have faith in your products, do it, do the spotless rinse system!

    I don't quite understand what do you mean by hard water spotting .. I believe we don't have this problem in Australia as water is everything but not hard .. very soft indeed.
