    I see, I use 5m prewet, could also see if the rollers of the lift are rolling free and fine. Thanks!

    Well, I meant rollers of a roller transport used in minilabs and some other home processing. I should have been clearer.

    I'll bet you need a stop.

    Eheheh, sorry, missunderstood! But why the nedd of a stop? I ask because, the first color films that I develop did not had this problem. The only change was adding the lift to the processor.
    Now, i remember that both the bleach and fixer were old, had 8 films throught it, but I extended the times, 8 to 10m each one since they were already reaching the capacity. The fixer was throwned and bleach could go for two more, but I am thinging opf doing a new batch!

    As bleach is used, the pH goes up and its ability to act as a stop goes down. Also, with bad agitation even fresh bleach is not spread evenly. Thus, development can continue for a short time leading to streaks where development is not stopped quickly enough.

    Use 1% or 2%, that is the range accepted in Kodak literature.
