    How long does Diafine last? Is there a capacity limit? Some say it never goes bad, you just run out of enough solution A to fill the tank. I'm still using my first batch, which I've probably put several hundred rolls of 35mm and 120 through. It's starting to look a little funky. Sure, I should probably just mix up some new stuff, but has anyone pushed it to the limit?

    I'll let you know when I find out. I am working on year two... probably a hundred rolls through it.

    I haven't found out yet. I've been replenishing my batch now according to directions and it's still going strong in year 2 as well.
