Have you used the CR Spotless before?I agree with what every one else has mentioned. To prevent them I use deionized water via this along with a good wax job:

To remove them you can try clay or polishing. Both remove wax so be sure to wax after them.
I usually wash it at my friends apartment complex since they have a car station set up there. Might have to reconsider. Thanks for the suggestion!#1 water spotter, Hard well or city water... #1 fix, rinsing with DI water... While not necessarily easy to conquer, it can be done.
Otherwise wash and especially dry in the shade, and get on it quickly with microfiber towels. A big helper to me is I have a hose in my garage hooked up to hot soft house water.
Best cheapest way to finish the wash if you can't do DI water....
Thanks for the welcoming! I’ll have to look into the nano coating. I’ve never heard of that before. I’m thinking and hoping the clay bar will do the trick. Do you think compounding will be necessary or could I get away with just a polish and wax?I would first try giving it a good wash and using a clay bar to see if that eliminates the water spots and any other stubborn debris. If you still see the spots after that you may need to polish or have polished the car. Once you have the results you want then a food coat of wax will help to protect it. You can also look into having a nano coating applied to your vehicle and in the process they would wash, polish etc before applying the coating.
Good Luck and welcome to the club
Thank you for the advice. I’ll look into doing that soon!There are some things to consider some of which @Cat Lady has mentioned. A good coat of wax is essential, whatever your favorite might be. What I learned early on with my Corvette as small as it is when you wash it if you don't get to dry it fast enough some of the water evaporates and leaves spots especially if a) you have hard water b) if you use a hose with a spray nozzle. If you have a good coat of wax you will notice that water beads up. What you want to do is use a hose with a nozzle that just supplies a steady stream of water not a spray also do not open the water connection too much as you want low pressure. Go through your washing process one section at a time and use the hose to supply a steady stream of water as just mentioned. You will see that the water come off in sheets rather than the results you get with a spray. Then you should always wash the car in the shade if possible either early or late in the day. Using this method leaves not a lot to dry off using micro-fiber towels. This has been my experience hope it helps you.
That's actually the system I have. I use regular water through my pressure washer for the pre-rinse and foam cannon, and another hose through the CR Spotless for the two bucket hand wash and rinse. Once I go to the regular hose the only water hitting the car is deionized.Have you used the CR Spotless before?
