Question about Hobart 24 in. LXIH-3 Built-in Dishwasher
I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the direction your seller is leading you. I assume this machine is installed in some type of place where you are serving food to the public. If this is the case, then the local health inspector will expect to see a wash tank temp of 150F-165F and a rinse temp of 180F-195F.
With a wash temp of 170F, you risk a health violation for over-temps and this can also cause so food soils to get "baked" onto the wares. With a rinse temp of 170F the health violation is under-temp and you likely will not have good sheeting/drying action on the glasses, leading to a spotting issue.
Hobart sells this machine with an "optional" kit for external chemical dispensing, but if you have the base-model (which it sounds like you do) it does not come with any type of ports for chemical injection. If you are truley concerned about consistent, pleasing results, ie clean dishes, no spots, etc. Then it would be my advice to have Hobart install this kit, and then contact a local chemical supplier for proper chemistry (a detergent and a rinse additive) and balancing of the machine. Most chemical companies do not charge for installing their needed dispensers onto your machine, and do not charge for service calls. They only charge for the chemicals you use. I have a personal preference towards Ecolab, but that's just me...
If I am way off on this, meaning you're not serving to the public (just your family) and a health inspector would never see this machine, then just get some cascade and call it good...
I hope this helps and please let me know if I can be of any further assistance,
