ALL of our stash was 100% repelling from detergent buildup after 6 yrs experience. I had no clue the water was that soft here. I'd say perhaps start with line one and see how many suds are in the main wash. You don't want too many, but sure not too few. It's a a real pain finding that happy medium with detergent and a new water type or even a new machine. I had a heck of a time. Like being new all over again. Be sure to check each rinse for excess suds as well.

That's crappy about the calcium....I'll give it a shot and see what happens. If the BG's don't make it I won't be heart broken as I got them used and we've gotten a ton of use out of them....I'll let you know what happens with the strip! Thanks again!
