Hi there salt is only req,d if you live in a hard water area ie. if the element on your kettle gets all furred up, using salt in your d/w in a soft water area is a total waste of money.

hope this is of some help

Aquarius DWF32 and dealing with water softner

Good idea to check levels yourself, but wear rubber gloves as dishwasher salt will leave your hands very sore, simply remove cover from salt tank, using a wooden spoon handle or similar check salt level and refill if required, replace tank lid, never wait for warning lights, they may never come on, good luck.

We drained an cleaned our pool filled it back up and added 6 40 pound bags of pool salt and know our pool water is brown what do we do ?

The first thing I would do is to add vinyl safe shock so the chlorine is about 10 ppm. This should start turning the water blue. The water should be tested to see what the salt level is. If it is too high drain out enough water to make it so the salt concentration is right when it is refilled. Refill the pool and again shock it to 10 ppm. Make sure the filter cartridge is cleaned out and the chlorinator is cleaned according to the manufacturers instructions. Start the pump and chlorinator. The water still may need some stablizer. If you bring a sample of your water in a sealed jar to a pool supply store they will test it and tell you what it needs. This is brief so other details can be picked up from the book that came with your pool or information available on the web. The kids can swim when the chlorine is between 2 and 4 ppm, you can clearly see the bottom and there is no floating degree or dirt on the bottom. I hope this helps.

White film on glasses. Cannot find solution,

Check water quality. clean the drain filter in the machine. Check spray arm spray jet holes. Clean if clogged.

If you suspect salt chamber try removing all the salt by flushing with water externally. Refill with fresh salt.

Low salt alarm on Intex system

so what does the test strip say. Should be as close to 3000ppm as possible anything close and under 2700ppm will trigger a low salt also you must run filter only for 24 hours to thouroughly mix the salt before trying to turn on the generator

Ran out of salt refilled and it is not softening

Don't you get it? Salt is required for the softener to work. Pepper is not a replacement.

Refill salt

There is a white plastic circular screw lid in the bottom of the dishwasher washing unit marked salt. Unscrew this and add as much salt as needed so that you can feel it when you put your finger down the hole. This could be quite a bit, perhaps a kilo.

LG LD-2160 dishwasher

Get an aqua vac and suck out the water (with the dissolved detergent)from the salt container. Refill it with water and repeat the process couple of times. Fill the container with water and salt and it should be fine. Good luck !!
