Tom,
These CR systems do work absolutely great. Albeit for a limited time though. Depending on your water in your area, the resins may last longer than ours do in our area because our water is considered severely HARD! Now, there's different game plans on just how to make the resins last longer. Some, will rinse the coach off with normal water. Then wash it with soap and water that's also with normal water. And, they'll rinse the soap off with normal water.

But, they then just rinse the coach off again, with DI water. Well, if you're in an environment that will allow for the coach to remain completely wet between all the operation and, not allow for drying before you can apply the DI water for the last rinse, that's good. But, if you're in a kind of environment like ours where you better use DI water for the whole operation, to keep it from spotting while still moving along, that's what we have to do which, in essesense, uses up the resins at a much higher rate.

It is what it is. I suspect that I'll get oh, around maybe 8-12 M/H washings and a few car washings out of this batch of resin. Then, it's time to mail order for more. It's still better than paying upwards of $2.00-$3.00 a foot to have it done, especially since NO DRYING IS NECESSARY!
Scott

X-2 on Scott's reply. Glad to be of any help to anyone. Now you can keep that Ventana shinin' like jewelry, she's a dandy!

Best regards,

NEWS FLASH!!!!!!!!!!!
3/3/2017, @ 09:40 A.M. I just got off the phone with CR spotless water and, it is OFFICIAL! DO NOT use softened water as the supply for your CR D.I. water system. The nice lady and I chatted for a bit on this subject and, Electra was right, the softened water will make the CR unit actually work HARDER in treating the water. So, the info from the CR rep I received at the Quartzsite RV event was WRONG. So, with all that being said, I'm out to wash the motor home as we speak. Yahooooooooo, no spots!!!!!!!!!!!!
Scott

I love the finish on my coach. They did such a nice job on all those clear coats at the factory, it would be a shame to mess it up. I use a lamb's will wash mitt (Mary Moppins) to prevent scratches. I would never have a truck stop wash job.

So here's my point...no drying means no towel scratches. DI systems are one more step in keeping the finish factory perfect!

I wouldn't be without one.

Scott/W.D. You guys were right on the money. I used it yesterday for the first time and could not believe the results. Had several people stop by and ask me about it and where I bought it. I also use the Mary Moppins lambswool (thank you Independence RV) products and could not be happier.

Even did my truck and it looked great as well. Baby shampoo, lambswool and CR Spotless, don't leave home without it!

A little update

I decided I could do better with my pipes. I wasn't totally satisfied with the room all of it took up, and I wanted it to be sturdier. I mounted a good portion of it to the wall and also eliminated some length in the piping, and rerouted. Here is before:

"Electra225"......Nice install, very clean.

On a side note..... the deionizer you installed (Costco unit) says it should be operated at 15 psi so that you don't exhaust the bead performance too quickly. I had an extra 3/4" adjustable water regulator and installed it on the output side of the unit. At 15 psi, the spray doesn't shoot far, so I added one of those garden hose sprayers with the 3' extension that is used for watering planters. It gives me just enough reach with the low pressure to reach the roof line.
