Answer:

The Cove Dishwasher water softener model ships with the hardness setting set to 0.

  • Department of Energy Standards requires units to ship at this setting.

For water softener models only, use the test strip provided and the chart below to determine the appropriate water hardness setting.

  • Note that the unit used in the table is grains per gallon (gpg), not parts per million (ppm).
  • On the test strip, gpg is the number in parentheses.
