I use a Silverprint archival washer. They don't come with instructions - or at least mine didn't and yes, I had the same problem getting the hoses to fit the taps! The paper emulsion should face the textured side of the dividers. Rotating prints during the wash sequence is good practice; I rotate once 180o degrees halfway through. Martin Reed (of Silverprint) wrote an extremely interesting article entitled 'Mysteries of the vortex' which refutes some long held beliefs about archival washing. I have a copy of it somewhere. As a previous poster says, you don't need copious amounts of water to wash a print - too strong a water flow may even reduce washing efficiency - just a moderate flow will suffice, say 1.5 ~ 2 L per minute max. Personally, I use a fill and dump method on my prints. 6 ten minute soaks in water at 25~30c (preceded by an initial quick wash and a 10 minute soak in home-made washaid). Anyway, don't worry, they're very well made and do the job admirably.
