    I answered before I read the reference. I tend to shorten my answers after the 50th or 100th repeat of the same old question!

    Glad you remembered it.

    Thanks.

    Now would not be a good time for you to step in front of a moving bus. Instead, get a second lifetime by buying another bottle of PhotoFlo.

    Considering how long a bottle of Photo-Flo lasts, how often (and how much of) does Kodak make the stuff?

    Seems like a master batch would be good for 10 years or more of retail sales. I'd bet a good portion of Photo-Flo goes to communal darkrooms and school darkrooms. My darkroom tech at school pours out the photo-flo every week and makes more, no doubt to the bottle's specs.

    I'm still trying to figure out exactly how much to use. I always seem to get a faint scum at least somewhere on my negatives. It wipes right off but it's annoying. I've been using only 1mL/L in deionized water but it still foams when I pour it.
    f/22 and be there.

    Dilution for Photo Flo 200 is 1:200. Foaming is normal.

    Photo Flo 200 is diluted as it says on the bottle.... 1:200

    What does the size of the bottle have to do with dilution? That is the way it is used.

    Photo Flo 600 is diluted 1:600 and Photo Flo 1200 is diluted 1:1200.
