Water softener

In order to rinse dishes and glasses
satisfactorily, the dishwasher requires soft
water, i.e. containing little or no lime,
otherwise water stains will be left behind
on crockery and glasses, etc.
If the tap water exceeds a certain level of
hardness, it must be softened, i.e.
decalcified, so that it can be used in the
dishwasher.
This is achieved by adding a special salt
to the water softener inside the
dishwasher.
The water softener, that is the required
amount of salt, is set up according to how
hard the tap water is.
