RAIN AND CARWASHES

It rains almost everyday this time of year around me (here in Florida.) I have a white car so it gets pretty dirty looking. I have been taking my car to a drive through carwash at a gas station 4-5 times a week. Besides the fact that it is expensive, can this cause problems for the paint over time? Is it better to have it hand washed or to do it myself. Or are most of the carwashes fairly safe?

I would try getting a good wax job done on it and wash it by hand less. The constant high pressure wash isnt a good thing.
