    Well, what sucks is the storing of the gallons. Small house. Once I start printing, I'm going to be really screwed.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I feel your pain. I lived in a 429 sf house (with cat) for six years. I stored a LOT of things outside.

    You needn't use distilled water for everything, just the final rinse for film only. I'd recommend some sort of wetting agent anyway, be it Kodak's PhotoFlo or Edwal's LFN. Calcium, or lime, is pretty well handled by the sequestrants in commercially prepared chemistry or with the addition of Sodium EDTA to homebrew stuff as recommended by PE.

    Apparently not MY lime. It appears to be some kind of stubborn variety that a good wetting agent can't even get rid of.

    I tried a distilled water rinse with a last bath of PhotoFlo mixed in distilled water and still got spots. The only thing that's worked without hitch for me was when I used a fully distilled water work flow. So...back to buying water I go.

    I get spots when I use photoflo in my distilled too. So I just use distilled.

    Also, instead of rinsing with distilled. I soak for at least five minutes. That works better for me, I still get spots when I just quickly rinse because I'm in a hurry.
