Default New hose attachment from TurtleWax....

Has anyone heard of or used this new hose attachment (filter) from TurtleWax?

Apparently it'* supposed to kinda like a "Britta water filter" for your hose, so that you don't get water spots on your car when it drys. Now I know all us detailing pros use a shamie(sp) to get the excess water off our rides, but I thought this might be something cool to improve the purity of the water that we wash our cars with.

I don't know if it'* out yet... I just saw an advertisement for it on TV.

I use the california blade... 10x better than anything else I have ever used. But, having one of these would be cool, not explose the paint to as hard of water... I'll be on the lookout for this next time I go to an autoparts store.

I'll second the motion for the California Water Blade. Fantastic drying tool. Fast, effective, and SOFT.

I have two. Jseabert and I both use them.

Plus....it seems a little silly to filter your washing water since the next rain water that hits your car wont be filtered It'* probably more practical to just stick with the chamois....

There'* a Mr. Clean hose attachment like that too.

But I prefer the Absorber! Best $10 I ever spent.

its probably not gonna work very well. We have hard water and its VERY hard to get out. I just spray the car with a mist and then go over it with an old bath towel, gets the job done just fine.
