    Well, not really. First, some is lost to carry out with each print that goes through. More is lost if you filter off the inevitable sludge that accumulates. Replenish the solution by removing an amount of the used working solution, minus the losses, equal to the amount of fresh concentrate needed to bring the working solution back up to its original strength.

    Dear Haris,

    Most of your questions have already been answered but :

    Always work in a well ventilated darkroom:
    Always read the instructions :
    Read the full MSDS ( material data safety sheets ) on the ILFORD Photo website:
    Protect yourself, always use tongs, wear gloves and suitable clothing protection :

    Thanks, it was the removal of an amount of used solution which I'd not seen mentioned before. Makes perfect sense now!

    Well, IMHO you always dump the last bit and you lose small amounts over time.
    If you want to be consistent filter every XX weeks and then replace (take some out and put some fresh in) about 10%

    Thank you all,

    Simon, thanks, I am aware of what you said, but one thing is theory, and practice... For example what means well ventilated darkroom, that is what well ventilated means to you and what to me ...

    Thanks again
