water filter/housing

I know this sounds crazy but I am wanting to experiment with a filter and h ousing to use attached to my spigot outside my pole barn garage. The purpos
e would be to wash my cars so there are no water spots and no need to dry t hem. I have three vehicles and it takes alot of time to wash them. Also, dr ying over time can leave spider web scratches if you are not extremely care ful.
Is there a filter or housing you recommend? Is it possible to mount a filte r housing outside even in freezing weather?

Will a filter help?
Are some marks not left by dissolved salts?

Is your water...hard or soft?
Thats the #1 question you should be asking someone before doing anything else.

allon is considered to be ?soft,? anything between 4 and 7 is considere d ?medium-hard,? and anything beyond 7 grains per gallon is considered ?hard.? Simpson's water has an average hardness of 4.8 grains.

The Pro Detailing guys that wash cars on new car lots use a double deionizer system, the two tall bottles on their truck or trailer. One resin bed attracts positive ions, the other negative, and between the two it gets pretty much everything out of the water.
You want to run a fine particulate filter before the deionizers, to keep from loading them up.
Usually get those deionizer bottles as rentals on an exchange basis from the local Water Softener people. You can buy your own and renew the resin beds yourself but it's a huge process. Let them deal with it in bulk.
Since they are fiberglass-wrapped pressure vessels with water inside, they have to be kept above freezing inside the garage, or you'll need to rig up heat wraps for the tanks if they are stored outside in freezing conditions. And pray the power for the heat wraps doesn't go off and they get wrecked anyway.
No rule saying you can't rig them up semi-permanent inside the Pole Barn in a nice little heated closet, then put a frost-proof spigot on the outside. You already have water in the barn, so you know what has to be done in your area to keep things from freezing.
