Need a dishwasher that will work with tankless heater
we will need to install a dishwasher that will for sure work with our Takagi tankless water heater. The heater is great, but requires 0.6-0.7 gal/min flowrate to start the burner. I heard that some of the modern "water efficient" dishwashers do not draw much water to begin with and the flowrate at which they fill could be below the minimal flowrate of tankless heater. It seems like with these "green trends" you can either save energy, or water, but not both? Anyhow, Miele representative told us that their dishwashers connect to cold water lines and will heat the water in the tub to needed temperature regardless of incoming water temp. Are there other manufacturers that use the same system? I'd think that Bosch be similar - a sales person at Pacific Sales store told us Bosch will heat the water to required temperature, but when I called Bosch customer support, they said - you must connect to hot water line and incoming water temp must be 120F, otherwise it won't work/clean. Bosch has changed models and model numbers (yet again) and I wonder if this confusion is from people in the sales are not being up to date with current models of Bosch? This same requirement of 120F for incoming water temp is also true for KA dishwashers per their customer support. So - if we can't really afford Miele, what would be our best option besides having to run tap water during dishwasher cycles (water efficiency - out the window!!!). Thank you!
