Now I'm a believer
by Chris S, 25 May 2015
Like most of the previous reviewers I had had my doubts before trying this product. My car is finished in dark metallic grey and i live in a hard water area, not a great combination. Washed the car this morning in the normal way, snowfoam and two bucket method. Connected up the Aqua Gleam for the final rinse and left it to dry in the sun. To my surprise it dried completely clear of any water marks. The windows, usually a real pain to get streak free didn't really even need glass cleaner! This product does what it says on the tin. My only reservation is how long it will last, but results so far are very impressive.
What a time saver

Bought this product at the start of the year, but not had time to use it. Finally yesterday on a hot day in the UK with plenty of sun I had time.
I foamed the car, rinsed it, TBM wash, rinsed again then used the filter for a final rinse. I was not expecting much to be honest, but after 30 minutes the car was virtually dry and the water had just vanished leaving no marks. I did find a few on the wing mirror glass, but that was me not rinsing well enough. Really really good product and works well on my black car.
The only thing to watch out for is how slippery the filter can be when you have wet hands. After using it I disconnected it from the mains pipe, stood up, and then disconnected the other end… only to pull to hard and yank the unit out of my wet hands. As you can imagine it dropped on the tarmac connector first and has destroyed the end. A hose connecter will still fit, but it’s not water tight. I’ll have to force a bit of hose over it and secure with a jubilee clip it I guess. You have been warned!
Overall does what it says it will and saved me a lot of time and elbow drying grease!
A great time saving product

The results of the Aqua Gleam system have done a pretty darn good job. I haven't touch this with a towel and already I'm planning my next detailing stage, so it's definitely a time saving gadget. The panels have been stripped of all waxes and sealants so there's no help from them to streak water. As soon as the water touched the bodywork, it streaked off to leave a lovely, clean and spot free finish. Definitely recommend this product.
WOW....WHAT A PRODUCT!!!!

I've got a black car with awkward angles and notoriously soft paint, so despite obsessively drying no more than a meter at a time, and only ever using a micro fibre the once then binning it, the swirl marks still add up.
I recently bought some triple wax gold self drying shampoo and the car dried completely White with smears. I've just used the same stuff with this filter, IN THE SUNSHINE, walked off and returned to a gleaming dry car. I'm absolutely gobsmacked!!! It's bone dry too, to the point the paintwork squeaks really loud if you touch it.
I'm a very hard to please kinda gal, but I have to say this is one of the best products I've ever used and I'll be emailing everyone I know to tell them.
Thankyou thankyou thankyou!!
PS: I keep walking back out to check on her....I still can't believe it!!
Sceptic proven wrong
by Nick S, 20 Jun 2011
I live in a very hard water area so this product really seemed the holy grail. I was REALLY sceptical as to whether to buy it but thought I'd trust the favourable reviews of other UF customers. So, what did I think? Amazing! A quick rinse and 30 minutes later I had a shiny spot free car, something impossible beforehand! I would happily recommend this to anyone, sure they'd also be very impressed. A 5 star product!!!

I love it and you can read about my test in the FTO Owners Group E-Mag: www.fto-group.co.uk/pdf/winter2010/mag.html

Even though I used a blower to dispose of the rinse water quickly after washing, on a hot sunny day I wasn't able to always get round the entire car before parts of it dried leaving nasty streaks, removing these can be tricky possibly leading to marring.
After reading positive reviews I invested in an Aqua Gleam, what a difference! Although I do not wait for the car to dry by itself (I'm sure it would very effectively) the improvement in water dispersement and the increased brightness of the finish is quite amazing.
One small area I feel would be an improvement is in the draining process after use. No matter how carefully you attempt to drain all the water from the filter there is always some left that necessitates slightly shaking the unit to remove (tedious), if puddles are not to be left in your storage area. Water retention stop caps to replace the plastic caps that come with the filter at present would be very welcome.
Aqua Gleam - Review by CarProductsTested.com
by Chris Davies, 24 Jul 2010
So, the verdict. It’s an excellent piece of kit which will astound you. Very much a well-deserved 10/10! Whether it’s summer or winter, you will notice a huge difference after washing your car. Just think how much time the Aqua Gleam will save you in drying time alone. It makes perfect sense. Now, we’re off to wash our cars again.

Washing both a big car and a black car in a hard water area has never been straight forward: Water-marks would appear on one side of the car by the time I’d finished rinsing the other side! The Aqua Gleam system means that I can obtain a totally streak and water-mark free finish that looks as good as if I’d waxed the car, and I don’t have to worry about spraying the finished car when I start on the second! I also use my exhausted 0ppm filter in line with a new 0ppm filter to prolong the new filter life – it works a treat! £50 might sound expensive, but it’s worth every penny!
Best time & energy saving gadget ever!

I started using this product when I started working here. It's excellent. I'm useless with a chamois and this not only means I don't have to struggle with one, it puts a lovely shine on the car. Chamois have the potential to put swirls in etc, especially if they get dirty. This is the way forward, I'll never do it any other way!
