    What does make a difference, is to expose as much of the
    paper to the water as possible. That is, there should be
    some method of separating the sheets, to keep them
    from touching one another.
    Some picture some paint. From a few posts made I can
    just see the fixer flowing from the paper then settling
    at the bottom as would a pool of mercury.

    In a few words, after a short rinse the surface fix is
    removed. The little left, molecule by molecule, diffuses
    to the paper surface and mixes with molecules of water.

    I avoid the whole matter of proper flow and bubble
    trouble by using the still water diffusion method. Two trays
    are used. I've incorporated hydrophobic separator sheets
    to keep prints "from touching one another". Dan

    washer

    I've also found that a fairly good wash for 30 minutes with some HCA added then a rest for several hours accomplishes about the same results as washing continuously.I do this for my proofing. For a good workflow on final washing check out the AZO web site.
    Best, Peter
