We recently purchased a top-of-the-line Bosch dishwasher from

We recently purchased a top-of-the-line Bosch dishwasher from Lowe's. After a wash cycle we find our dishes covered with a film of what appears to be calcium deposits. It wipes off with a dry cloth. Our old dishwasher did not do this. We have adjusted the water softener, used a booster, made sure that the rinse liquid reservoir is full before washing, etc. but nothing seems to help. Please help!

We have a 10 year old Kenmore softener, model Ultrasoft 425.

We have a 10 year old Kenmore softener, model Ultrasoft 425. My wife thinks it is not working properly. I did add some acid stuff picked up at Lowe's to recharge the resin 3-4 months ago, and it seemed to help. I checked the water from the kitchen faucet with swimming pool strips and found the total hardness to be in the low (100) range. The total alkalinity was high in the 180-240 range. Are these significant readings of our water? Our well water goes through a house filter, then the softener, then the hot water heater or cold water feed. The outside hose bibs' water is directly from the well and that water is 500+ in hardness and high in alkalinity. The pH is around 7. The hardness setting on the softener is 85. We use NaCl salt. We have a 3b2b home. Just two live here. What is the life of our softener? Get a new one? If so, which one do you recommend? Are the swimming pool strips accurate to measure the various tests?

I'm trying to find a manual on an Extra Pure water softener

I'm trying to find a manual on an Extra Pure water softener with a Pentair model 268/860 control head without much success. Evidently, Pentair controllers are on multiple brands of water softeners so thought this GE might work as it has the same model number.JA: Sometimes plumbing issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix.

I have a whirlpool demand water softener(whes48) a couple

Hi , I have a whirlpool demand water softener(whes48) a couple months back I realized it might not be softening our well water. When I discovered it I regenerated manually and it softened the water- but after the capacity remaining goes somewhere below 50% it stops softening(according to display). SOmetimes it will make it down to 15 or 20% capacity, but today it is at 34% and I dont have soft water.After going through all the troubleshooting and doing all the required maintenance I have come to a possible conclusion. Is it possible that if I had the the hardness set incorrectly that it is not softening the water to full capacity? I have had it set to 13 grains and I might have had to have it set to 15grains- its seems that our water is somewhere between 220 and 250 mg/l. ThanksJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: I have no leaky toilets or anything, my supply line goes through an iron filter before it goes into the water softener. Noticed that some of my fixture had hard water damage that didnt happen over night. So thats why I think I have had this issue from beginning . The softener was installed in our house when we built it - moved in November of 2012.JA: OK got it.
