Shortest version possible:
Our water softener was set to a hardness of 35. I switched it to 19 and recharged it that night.
Now we get salt in our water. For example, whenever we boil water, our pots dry and then they are coated in a salty powder that you can wipe off very easily.
I reset the water softener level to 35 and recharged it again overnight, and we have been using water all day long, but we still get the salty powder on everything and my wife insists she tastes salt in the water.
How do I overcome this problem?!
(For those who already think I am crazy, before buying a new dishwasher I wanted to make sure we weren't having hard water issues, so that is why I changed the setting from 35 parts of something-per-something to 19.)
