Water Consumption

Look for re-circulating style dishwashers, which reduce the demand for hot water. Expect your dishwasher to consume 2.5-3.5 litres of water with every wash cycle.

Power Consumption

Newer dishwashers save huge amounts of water but require more power than the older models. Most under counter dishwashers now require a minimum 15 amps of single phase power supply.
