looking great.

Just used my aqua gleam filter for the first time. Very impressive spot free dry.

Finally got a chance to use my Aqua Gleam, must say very impressed. After cleaning I usually have to polish the black bar on the front, chrome surround and chrome vents on the side as they get covered in watermarks. No problem now, will save a lot of time.

Used mine for the first time yesterday - how have I not known about this before!!!! Makes it sooooo much easier and quicker, not to mention reduce the risk of introducing swirl marks into the paint!!

How have you attached yours to the wall? I can see you can buy a "holder" but I'd like to avoid another £25 outlay if it can be substituted with tie straps or similar :)

I now use this which is cheaper long term and refillable .. so over a longer term is cheaper

About £80 pre filled?

If I'm looking at the website correctly, the filters for this are only around £10, so over the long term quite a bit cheaper?

Hello .. its not filters you need to purchase but new resin, about £50 for 22l (2 refills)

I like the Aqua gleam tube but cant see why they cant make it reusable .. like a screw top with a o ring seal for example ... I am thinking of modding mine

I attached mine to the wall with 2 x 110mm jubilee clips from B & Q for £2. Simply drilled a hole in the middle of the band and screwed it to the wall. The coiled hose was £14. Simple solution and works really well. Lets see how long the filter lasts, but on first impression I would happily replace it every 6 months.
