Fisher Paykel dishwasher -- softener or not?
The FP's are on sale, so maybe time to buy. Need one within 2 months anyway (finishing remodel).
My water is in the range of 6 or 7 grains -- a bit hard, but not so high. I never really noticed any water hardness problems with the previous GE, which got 22 years of trouble free use.
Anyone have the FP model with the water softener? Any advice on that feature in general? Are there any downsides to having the water softener model? The price difference is under $100.
Also, any FP owners care to recommend detergent type/brand?
