Can someone please tell me how to get water marks, cloudy whitish deposits from the lawn sprinklers off my car? I had hoped the new filtration plant on Santa Rita would help, but it's just as bad, or worse than before.

ARRRGH! How about showing a little respect for our Castlewood friends. I know I have two for my family, with some pretty good neighbors to boot. No more Rodney water treatment, please.

Water spots are from minerals in the water. The R.O. plant will make it better if you receive water from that source. If you do, it still is only a mix of the R.O. to Pleasanton's well water. Depending on the ratio of R.O. to well water will determine your mineral count in the water. The only thing you can do is wax your car and keep it away from having the water dry on it. White vinegar or CLR cleaner will help to remove what you already have on it. These help to break down the minerals off shower doors, faucets and car paint if needed.
Happy New Year to all!!
