    Re: Noob from upstate NY.....Greetings!

    I`m a transplant, lived on Long Island for 50 years. I was at Ground Zero on 9/11 and I couldn`t get a more profound message "to get out of Dodge". Almost ended up in New Zealand but moved to rural NY. Wish I had done it years earlier. Funny thing is I was at first labeled a "flatlander", but when folks realized I knew more about the environment than they did and I didn`t possess a "city attitude", they slowly changed their mind.....

    Crow,

    I have very hard well water. It`s a pain but you can wash with it. Try to wash out of direct sunlight and keep the vehicle wet until you are ready to dry. Another tip I would do is open doors, hood, truck, tailagate, etc and wipe dry. Otherwise the water dries and you get a buildup of scale that can be difficult to remove. I use a leaf blower to get all the crevices, then open everything and use some quick detailer and a microfiber to dry jambs etc.
    Once you get the paint protected it`s easy to dry the vehicle off. Look into a few good drying microfibers as they really speed things up.

    I recently started using inline filters from a spa supply place. They are cheap and help remove some of the hardness. I use them combined with a CRspotless.

    Good luck and welcome to autopia.

    I fought with hard water for years and it was off the charts. Last year for fun, I ran the garage water through the house softener and it was a night and day difference. Soaps foam up, you can actually dry your car without a water spot haze, and other chemicals like round-up actual work.

    I`ve got a switch in the basement to run straight well water for irrigation, but I usually leave the soft water on in both of my barns.
