Mineral Spots...ugh

I have well water and its leaving mineral deposits on my paint. I didnt have time to go too aggressive, but tried some Menzerna 4500 and that wouldnt take them off. Nanoskin would not either. What products do you recommend? Thanks.
Dave

Could not find the link on CG's website, this works and you will need gloves and elbow grease but it is going to remove the mineral etch.

I use meguiars rubbing compound. But I also keep a thick layer of wax on the car to keep the spots from digging in. Nice, shiny, and slick too!!

Thanks for the responses. My question is, should I use the Menzerna 1500 I have with an orange or yellow pad or just order some CGs stuff. Kind of disappointed that the Power Lock didnt help protect better than it did.
