The use of a dishwasher, according to many, justifies themselves from the point of view of water saving, time and strength. But such devices also need maintenance and care. One of the means to maintain the serviceability of the dishwasher, will be a special regenerating salt. Among the most popular FINISH salt for dishwasher. It is recommended to use almost all known manufacturers of such devices. We will try to figure out what kind of salts are, and how to use the means.
The FINISH brand salt is necessary for the prevention and prevention of lime-based plating. The second reason for using the substance will be that water in the water supply system has a very high level of rigidity, which threatens the efficiency of the dishwasher. And this is despite the fact that the components of almost all detergents for dishes are softeners. Only a special salt from scale will allow maintenance of the machine, high quality washing and durability of various parts of the device, which is directly engaged in touch with rigid water.
For a more complete understanding of how such a means works, it should be added that salt, based on sodium chloride, water mitigation does not carry out. But when interacting with a resin in an ion exchanger, this process becomes possible.
It may seem that the ion exchanger and without salt should mitigate water.
But the resin itself does not differ in durability, and it is for its regeneration and maintaining an ion exchanger and is required to use such a tool as salt.
The consumption of the substance will depend on the water rigidity indicator. You can measure it with a special test strip.
In addition, the manufacturer declares that the products under consideration perform the following functions:
Summates hard water;
eliminates raid and leaks from water directly on the dishes;
has a positive impact on the processes that occur inside the dishwasher;
is a prophylactic solution that helps protect technique from scale.
As mentioned above, the FINISH salt includes sodium chloride, which is its main component. Many believe that we are talking about a conventional salt and skeptically relate to the use of such substances. But this is an erroneous opinion, because the manufacturer uses a certain type of salt, which does not contain various kinds of impurities, such as iron, coal acid, sand. FINISH products are produced in the form of large granules, which allows you to be confident that the dissolution of salt will be uniform and not very fast.
The last moment is extremely important, as this will ensure more high-quality protection of the elements directly in contact with water.
If we talk about the assortment of FINISH salts, which is presented on the market, then it is relatively small. FINISH salt for dishwashers is implemented in various volumes. You can find boxes with a volume of 1.5 kg, as well as packages of 3 kg and 5 kg. Although the latter can be found in stores more and less. In addition, packages of 4 kilograms salt began to appear on the market. We add that no differences in the use of salt from packaging with different weight.
And also recently, salts began to appear on the domestic market, which are intended for specific European markets – Germany, Great Britain, Poland. It is usually cardboard capacity of 1.2-1.5 kilograms. Despite the problem, which analogues for European countries are better, they show an absolutely the same result as the products that are produced for the domestic market. At the same time, their cost may be slightly higher than that of salts for the Russian market due to transport surcharges and customs duties.
How to use?
Now let’s talk how to use the FINISH salt for dishwashers so that its efficiency is the maximum, and the acquired volume has been enough for a long period. To do this, we give a small instruction that will help achieve the above result.
First you need to set water hardness. This will help the equipment as accurately as possible and calculate how much salt will be needed. The value of the indicator can be found in the local water supply service, which serves the area where a person lives. Either it can be determined independently using special test strips. Many manufacturers of dishwashers provide their techniques.
After the hardness level was defined, you must configure the dishwasher. You can do this, guided by the instruction that comes complete with a specific device. Usually there is a corresponding section in case of use of such substances.
Now you can proceed directly to the use of salt. To do this, it is required to fall asleep into a special compartment, which is usually located next to the separation where the detergent is placed. The compartment must be completely filled, and the substance must be added as expenditure. Outline packaging with a volume of 1.5 kilograms during normal use is enough for about 27-30 washing cycles.
It should be added that many manufacturers of universal tablet substances claim that the use of only their products allows you to ensure full-fledged care for the dishwasher, and it is not required to use salt.
But experts say that applying the regenerating salt is necessarily if you want to extend the life of the dishwasher.
Consumers highly rate the FINISH manufacturer. They note that the use of such a substance allows not only to maintain the components of the dishwasher, but also does not allow divorces from hard water on the dishes. Many people write that this salt is enough for quite a long time, which will be extremely important if you look at the quality and cost ratio.
Truth, In a number of reviews there is a somewhat overestimated price of FINISH. But at the same time it is indicated that it is significantly better coping with its duties, rather than similar substances of other brands.
