Have you ever applied a treatment to your windshield to help keep it clear when you’re driving in the rain or protect against icy build-up in the cold Canadian winter?
Crackmasters has always used Aquapel, but we were curious how our favorite product compared to others, such as Rain X.
Most people thought Rain X was better than not using any treatment, but when compared to Aquapel, there was really no contest.
Auto blogger Josh Wadell tried both products at once to get a true side-by-side comparison. As you’ll see this video, he left the center of the windshield untreated, applied Aquapel to the left side of the windshield, and used Rain X on the right side.
He notes that both products require a little bit of speed to be truly effective, though the Aquapel works best at a slightly higher speed. At low speeds and during a light drizzle he does have to use the windshield wipers.
What’s truly remarkable is that Rain X lost a lot of its clearing power within 20 days. By day 39, it’s all but gone in the area swept by the wiper blades. Aquapel was still going strong even at day 60.
AutoBlog.com recapped Wardell’s test and the commenters seemed to agree that Aquapel was the superior product.
Ask your local Crackmasters shop in Canada to apply an Aquapel treatment to your windshield and experience the Aquapel difference for yourself.
