Have you ever wondered what are the fundamental units to a good car grooming? The quality of car care products? The workman ship? The kind of machines used? Think deeper, every one in the market boast about their hydrophobic quality, their price point but then ask yourself these questions – have anyone think about the invisible but obvious critical element? – The quality of water.
All decent, respectable car groomers/detailers start the process with wet valeting. Water is the essence and the base unit before progressing to the next stages. In EAD, we learned from our foreign counterparts and realise the Best Detailers in the world uses water that is cleaner than our drinking water. This concept is still fresh in Singapore but spotless water treatment or Reverse Osmosis has been picked up by the World’s Best a few years back.
What is in your tap water?
We extract a data sheet from PUB which states the amount of minerals and chemical compounds in our tap water – https://www.pub.gov.sg/Documents/Our%20Drinking%20Water%20Quality%202015.pdf. In general, Singapore water quality is relatively soft; we have an average TDS (Total Dissolved Solid) readings around 100-120. Total dissolved solids (TDS) comprise inorganic salts (principally calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, bicarbonates, chlorides, and sulfates) and some small amounts of organic matter that are dissolved in water.
These are the minerals which caused the water marking and water streaking on your vehicle when not dried properly; effectively your car is dowsed with water which react negatively with your car paint. The water marks and streaks are evidence of the sodium, magnesium and chloride.
What is Reverse Osmosis?
Reverse Osmosis is a technology that is used to remove a large majority of contaminants from water by pushing the water under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane. In EADxpress, we installed a 5-stage Reverse Osmosis capable for a daily output of 300 US Gallons. RO can effectively reduce levels of salt, hardness and silica minerals that contribute to spotless finish.
Vowing to perfect our art of detailing, EADXpress invested in a 5-Stage Reverse Osmosis certified by FDA and EPA Standards. It delivers pure water minimising damage to your car paint. We are the only car detailer in Singapore to invest in this technology. If you are a perfectionist like we are, search no more. EADXpress are located at 265 Tanjong Katong Road Singapore 437052.
