Here is a really comprehensive How to Clean a Commercial Dishwasher list by Chem Mark
Limescale buildup is one of the biggest issues associated with commercial dishwashers, but it can be completely avoided by installing a water softener that runs with your dishwashing machine.
Also, according to Chem Mark:
…hard water doesn’t have negative effects to human health, (but) it represents the death of a great number of dishwashers all over the country. Namely, commercial dishwashers deal with numerous negative consequences of heating hot water. The water gets heated, it evaporates and leaves mineral buildup on the inside of the machine and its parts. In case of limescale buildup, you can de-lime your commercial dish machine, but it is much more important to prevent the buildup in the first place, as scale can cause a lot of trouble and damage. When the buildup forms on the heating element it causes it to work much harder to achieve same or similar results. This will not only be noticeable on your utility bills, but it will also cause the dishwasher to breakdown much faster due to such excessive operation.Scale buildup can also clog the nozzles and pipes, damage the valves, cause leakage and failure and impair dishwasher efficiency. There are numerous benefits of getting a water softener for your business and lowering maintenance and repair costs is just one of them.
