No More Water Spots After Washing.

The final stage of any good car wash system is a pure water rinse that ensures a spot free finish. Now, thanks to the Aqua Gleam in-line filter, you can enjoy the benefits of virtually pure water, giving you a spot free finish when washing your car at home.

The Aqua Gleam 30ppm filter can filter the below quantities of water, we would expect an average of 8 litres to be used per rinse. There are many factors that can contribute to the lifecycle of any water filter, such as hard water sources, use from a water softener (due to added salt content), water from boreholes; and these numbers should be used as a guide only. The resin will change colour as it is “used” up and will need replacing once complete.

  • Small (12") - Hardness Water (Soft) - 560 Litres
  • Small (12") - Hardness Water (Medium) - 288 Litres
  • Small (12") - Hardness Water (Hard) - 200 Litres

Features & Benefits:

  • Eliminates watermarks & streaks
  • Virtually pure de-ionised water
  • No need to chamois dry
  • Significantly enhanced shine
  • Supplied with two quick connect hose end fittings
  • Many other applications - motorcycles, boats, aircraft, motorhomes, etc
  • Small - Length 350mm (13.7") & Width 100mm (4")
  • Large - Length 805mm (31.7") & Width 100mm (4")

Purifies ordinary tap water to 30 parts per million (30ppm). Water at this higher level of purity will provide the best possible results and meet the requirements of even the most demanding users. In areas with particularly hard water it may be preferable to use a 30ppm filter rather than the 0ppm filter in order to prolong filter life. Alternatively a 30ppm can be used in-line with a 0ppm filter.

Instruction For Use

1) Wash your car with safe wash techniques, taking care to be thorough.
2) Rinse the soapy water away using regular tap water.
3) Do not allow the vehicle to dry.
4) Connect the Aqua Gleam filter in-line with your hose using the connectors supplied.
5) Rinse the whole vehicle a second time.
6) Stand back and allow to air dry naturally for a spot free finished result.


  • Reduce the water flow rate using an in-line regulator
  • Keep the length of hose from the filter to the car as short as possible.
  • The filter may be laid on the ground, however it is best suspended vertically with water in at the bottom
  • Do not use in conjunction with a water softener or pressure washer (above 100psi).
  • Only use enough water to re-wet all surfaces
  • Use the filter in the same direction each time
  • The colour change mechanism is affected by sunlight, drain after use and store in darkness
  • The filter media will change colour to signal when replacement is due, even when the colour has changed, continue to use the filter until you are no longer satisfied with the result.
  • Any fish smell is just a result of water being left in the media for too long after use, it will not impact the purifying ability.

Oh my goodness

I was sceptical to be honest . . But bloody hell! I couldn't believe it, what a transformation! No spots, no streaks . . Nothing! Try it for yourself and sit back enjoy . . 😊

Same as others have said, I live in a hard water area, you can use this on a waxed car to give a quick wash and then towel dry to remove pollen & dust on a car. Connect up rinse the car. the best bit is seeing the normal tap water coming through the hose then change to deionised water that sheets off a waxed car, then either leave to dry or towel off. Just wished you could change the granules rather than the whole cartridge.

Rinse and leave

This is unreal. I washed my black Jag and my mates black C63 in the sun and rinsed with the Aqua Gleam filter, left them to dry and not a mark in sight. It's amazing and leaves a streak free shine. Love it.

brilliant finish

I have always hated the water marks left when cleaning a black car, those days are over, don't use a quick detailer anymore, just Gtechniq uv wash, final rinse with the Aqua Gleam and the dry it off with Swissvax waffle towel, the best finish I've had from a 30 minute wash..

I didn't believe it, now I do!

This is an amazing product that I have no hesitation in recommending. I live in a hard water area, so white streaks are common place unless you shammy and shine to avoid them. The Aqua Gleam avoids that altogether, you simply apply with a hose at the end of your wash and hey-presto, no streaks. Brilliant!!!

Watch it Vanish!

Unbelievable – Wash, rinse and watch the water disappear leaving absolutely nothing. Yes, it really does work. I was somewhat sceptical at first as this is not a cheap product but if you have a car you want to keep as ‘swirl’ free as possible this really does work leaving no watermarks on the car and actually seems to leave an extra sparkle. I’m about to by my 4th so it must be good.

No streaks, just shine

Isn't it nice when something lives up to its claims - this really does leave a lovely shine without streaks if you are in a rush. If you have time then using this as part of your car cleaning regime produces even better results!
