    Just my .02 worth.
    Theoretically yes. In practice, with water moving all over the place mixing things up, it's just sales hype.

    Well these folk were kind enough to post detailed assembly instructions so I've been trying to source all the spare parts. I'm thinking that styrene separators are going to be too flimsy so will probably go with A3 sheets of acrylic or a similar plastic.

    The WaterSaver washer mentioned above looks very simple with just a plastic pipe sawed to allow the separators to slot in.

    I'm probably wasting my time with all this, so far I've got a deep DIY storage tub for £6, a Paterson rubber tap hose stolen from a print washer with a Paterson drying rack sitting on the bottom of the tub! Could it be any more complicated?!!

    If you would like me to sell you a version, please send £400 and I'll spin some marketing crap with proven science in a pdf

    Good pointer. Presents the flip side of using lots of water.
    I concur entirely with the Fred Picker quote: " No Running
    Water, No Agitation! Archival Washing Requires Time, Clean
    Water, and Print Separation.

    My adaptation is the alternate two tray wash using separators.
    Some thing of a horizontal slot washer. Hold and soak tray
    included, throughout the last over night wash the prints
    are held separate using non-woven polyester sheets.

    Three changes of water will do if a post fix routine
    of rinse, hypo clear, rinse, hold is followed. Very
    little water and no plumbing needed. Dan
