Lime Buildup in Your Dishwasher

Lime buildup in dishwashers can cause headaches, especially for restaurant and hotel owners whose customers expect their dishes and glassware to be squeaky clean.  Often times when glasses come out of the dishwasher cloudy, people are quick to blame the dishwasher itself and hastily run out to purchase a new one.  The reality is, however, that the powdery film on your newly cleaned glasses is usually a result of high mineral content in your water supply.

This should come as good news to home owners and even better news to those in the restaurant industry because treating the hard water that causes lime buildup in dishwashers is much more affordable than purchasing a brand new appliance.  Commercial dishwashers can cost thousands of dollars and unfortunately, no matter how much money you spend, if you don’t soften the hard water running into the appliance, you’ll have cloudy glasses again in no time.

The easiest way to soften your water is to reduce its calcium content and correct its pH balance.  This is best done with the aid of a water conditioner like Turbu-Flow.  While there are many water conditioners available to consumers, Turbu-Flow is unique because it offers a softening solution for every water carrying system.  Whether you own a restaurant that serves thousands of people a day, or you are simply a homeowner fed up with the cloudy glasses in your cabinets, there’s a Turbu-Flow water conditioner for you and your dishwasher.
