    Bleach replenisher is bleach - you need to buy that to start out. Bleach regenerator is (I believe) an oxidising agent that increases the bleach activity level once it gets a bit worn. Use of regenerator can therefore reduce the rate at which you need to throw out used bleach and replace it with fresh replenisher. You most likely want the Bleach III Replenisher, not the Bleach Replenisher NR.

    Fixer does go bad but it takes 5+ years. Starts to smell bad and (if used) silver will start plating out onto the container it's stored in, but it still mostly works.

    Agreed, regenerator is what you use to refresh the bleach after running it. I use up a 5L batch of bleach, saving it after processing with it, then use the regenerator to bring it back to life (so to speak) for another round of usage. Bleach is pretty long-lived.

    Do you use the bleach over and over this way? If so, is there any silver buildup requiring removal?

    I've used the same 5L batch twice, regenerating after the first time. I will regenerate it again soon and use it for another 48 rolls soon. I haven't seen any silver buildup so far. PE would know more about that probably...

    thanks
