    Hi,

    I don't know, if it's the right place for this to be asked, but I hope so. I afforded a Thermaphot ACP 305 RA-4 processor from someone, who didn't know anything about it but only resold it.
    My problem is, that it has all together eleven tubes coming out of it or places, where now broken and lost tubes had been. Five of them (the left ones one the picture) are for draining the five tanks, but I can't imagine, what the others are for.
    Can someone tell me, what i should connect to them or even has a manual? Would be great. Thank you for your efforts.

    Kay

    You still can buy a manual at Thermaphot.

    Two tubes (in/out) are necessary for the final rinse via a cascade system, unless you prefer a washless stabilisation mode. See the folder on the ACP 305.

    I have already read that document, but I can't find any information about those tubes.

    No, but in the text the rinse with fresh running water and the replenishing is mentioned, you need tubes for this, aside of the draining tubes you mentioned.

    5 baths = 5 draining tubes + 5 inlet tubes

    It's getting warmer...

    :D
    So I assume, the two coloured tubes are for replenishing the development chemistry and the transparent ones for fresh water supply and draining.
    If I set the replenishing ratio down to zero, can I just leave twe two coloured ones hanging down?
