    At my old house,the water was soft,and this wasn't a problem.I did have access to reverse osmosis,but never used it for washing the car.The water i have now is full of calcium and leaves deposits.I believe there is a filter that can be attached to your hose,but they are expensive,and the harder the water,the quicker they will become exhausted.

    Our water has very little buffering in it.

    Some of the softest water I've ever seen.

    I can't say I'm not concerned.
    I usually don't expect any unless the mirrors like to hold gallons of water, like my mom's car.
    My 3 water magnets did a great job on completely drying the paint on my brothers ext cab Silverado and my big ol Caprice car.

    Hard water spots are a problem, but not one I've really had to deal with. I voted no in the poll.

    Here's a hardwater map I found...



    I'm sure this is a map of surface water because *any* well water would be full of minerals I presume.

    Looks like the biggest part of America has very hard surface water. I didn't know that.

    That map is depressing... guess I'm lucky to be in an area of slightly hard water then

    After spending 40+ years in the Pacific Northwest, hard water was NEVER a concern. Just left over water spots that would come off with a damp MF. I never understood the problem with hard water UNTIL I moved to Minnesota! Right in the middle of a "Red Zone!"

    The only words I have about this are only four (4) letters long.

    YES, I am. They are a pain to remove when they dry-out.

    I have a 5000 litre rain water tank with a pump connected. I only wash the car in rain water.
