Having lived in areas with very hard water, I can tell you that the marks left behind by the calcium deposits can be very annoying, especially on dark colored cars. I just learned an easy way to remove these spots before waxing. I used a pad of several layers of paper towel saturated with plain old white vinegar. It works like a breeze. I keep a terry towel with me and do about a panel at a time, wiping the vinegar off after letting it set for just a few seconds. After the wipe down, I either use a spray wax or a paste to make the car look like new again! Make sure the car is clean and cool to the touch. I'd recommend doing it in the shade as well to avoid streaks. I've tried to remove these marks in the past with polishing wax or scratch remover, and even though it works, it's a LOT of hard work. Using the vinegar is so easy you won't believe it!
