Thread: Who's using a deionizer?

    Re: Who's using a deionizer?

    Price difference is quite small, why not get the system with twice the capacity?

    Another thumbs up for CR spotless. Just try washing a black car in the desert with bad water and it is spot city. Still dry with WW towel and a drying aid, can get away without towel drying on a light colored cars but still necessary on dark colors.

    And by all means have a Happy Birthday

    Who's using a deionizer?

    I use a CR. It's a pretty potent tool when used correctly. It's not perfect, but any light spotting wiped right off no effort.

    Lol. I let mine sit for like 6 mos wet and there was no algae in it. Emptying when you're done is a PIA. You just need to use it every so often & you won't have an issue.

    I store my CR system from Nov to April due to temps. I drain out all the water and store resin tubes in basement. I use it once every week or so when up and running and never had an issue with growth. I usually get 7-8 months out of resin before it comes off 0.0 TDS.

    No. Have to unscrew the canisters and turn the resin upside down to drain.
