    You must have enough fluid in the reservoir to keep the rotating drum partly submerged. Use of the system without the lift (using only a magnet) is a real pain!

    Well, it wasn't that bad. Regarding the first post, the data sheet of the chemicals in the trouble shooting table, has a line with what I had, "whitely blurs on the dry film - calcium carbonate blurs, water was too hard - use distilled / demineralized water for stabilizer bath. Indeed the water here is very hard. Can I make 250ml more of stabilizer (only did 250ml) with distelled water and add to the stab I already have to see if it dillutes the problem?

    No. That is not advisable.

    Start fresh and use only DW if the water is that hard.

    Thanks, will due a new stab bath.

    PS: By the way, do I follow your advice for the c-41 and e-6 chemicals, in the future?

    C41 and E6 stabilizers, at present, are pretty much the same thing so the answer is yes.

    The other solutions contain sequestrants to prevent problems with hard water, but use of DW will not hurt. It is just that in front end solutions the hard water does not have a huge impact when dry.
