    I have developed my first couple color rolls with my used bought Jobo CPE.

    I used unicolor 3 step chemicals. (developer, blix, and stabilizer)

    How should I clean the lift? I just ran some water through it. is that enough?

    Thanks,

    I always run some extra water through it after each batch and then I sort of splash water into the end where the drums connect. I don't know if any extra washing is needed if you rinse your film in the drum via the processor, but I remove the drum after fixing and wash the film in the sink, saving the extra wear and tear on the motor.
