Chemical Guys Cyclone Dirt Trap-Car Wash Bucket Insert

YES THESE FIT THE UNITED CAR CARE BUCKETS :)

The Car Wash Filter that never stops! As easy as a drop in the bucket!

The Cyclone Dirt Trap bucket insert sits at the bottom of your bucket while you wash filtering water non-stop. It's the filter that never stops. The cyclone Dirt Trap help eliminates wash swirls and scratches with Cyclone Dirt-Trap Filtration Technology. The round wash screen separates abrasive dirt and silt from clean and soapy wash water with scores of cyclonic dirt funnels. Separating dirt from clean and soapy water keeps abrasive debris off the wash mitt, and therefore off the paintwork for a scratch-less car wash. Traditional wash baffles use large vertical screens or disposable mesh filters in an attempt to separate dirt from water, which always ends up cloudy with loose contamination and abrasive filth. These designs are defeated by the mere act of dunking the mitt into the bucket, which pushes and pulls water and dirt straight through the vertical openings of the poorly-designed screens. The cyclone funnels of the Dirt Trap separate dirt through centripetal force and push it through tiny holes underneath the wash screen. The dirt remains trapped underneath the funnels and cannot easily flow back up through the tips once the mitt is pulled out from the water. The one way Cyclone Filtration system is a passive filter that never needs replacing and does not rely on moving parts, no disposable filters, and requires no maintenance or energy to set up, use, or store.

Simply place a Dirt Trap at the bottom of the soap bucket and rinse bucket to keep the wash mitt and water free of the dirt removed off the vehicle. While other wash screens fit loosely and float because of lightweight materials, the Dirt Trap uses a tailored fit and dense plastic to fit snugly at the bottom of any standard bucket, and stay there for maximum filtration. Use the Dirt Trap with the two-bucket wash method and foam gun to dramatically reduce the amount of dirt floating in the water and the abrasive action on sensitive paint that causes swirls and scratches. Choose the Dirt Trap for every wash, and maintain a scratch-free shine on any car, truck, motorcycle, SUV, or RV.

Dirt Trap Cyclones funnel and separate dirt away from wash water. The Dirt Trap car wash guard uses nearly 300 cyclone funnels to separate abrasive dirt and debris from car wash water. Keeping the dirt already washed away from the car reduces the chances of installing swirls and scratches caused by scrubbing with abrasive dirt. Traditional car wash strainers use large open screens and vertical fins in an attempt to hold dirt at the bottom of a wash bucket. However, the mere act of dunking the dirty wash mitt in and out of the bucket pushes and pulls any dirt and debris straight up through the screen and back into the clean water. This traps the dirt already washed off the car in the mitt, and causes abrasive scratching action on the next cleaning pass. The small funnels of the Dirt Trap create cyclonic flow down through the tiny tip of each funnel, spinning heavier dirt particles out of the water through intense centripetal force. The textured underside and small holes of the screen act as a one-way valve: dirt is pushed through the funnels with cyclonic force, but it gets trapped underneath the guard and cannot easily flow back up into the water when the wash mitt is withdrawn. Use the Dirt Trap in each wash and rinse bucket to minimize the chances of scratching and swirling paintwork during any car wash or full detail.
