Default New Bosch dishwasher using too much rinse agent

We got a Bosch dishwasher yesterday...model SHE66C.
I filled up the rinse agent dispenser before running it.

On the second load, the "low rinse agent" indicator was already on.
After it finished, it took another 2 ounces of rinse agent.

At the rate of 1 ounce per load of dishes, rinse agent would bankrupt
me.

Any idea what's going on?

The dispenser arrow is set to the factory default of 3.

Lower the dial? My Bosch has always done the same thing. It seems to
want you to keep it topped off. Is your water hard?

You can adjust the amount of rinse aid used. Bosch defaults to r05 out of a
max of r06. The button combination is a bit strange so check the manual, ours
is hold eco, press start, press pre-rinse
