Perhaps the CPA or other models can chill the water as well as heat it
    I think there will be no difference between the CPE2 and the CPA. But that won't be a problem here, because I can get the water almost frosty from the tap. The problem is that it sometimes may take forever to get warmer water. And to hold the temerature at a level is difficult sometimes of course.

    Jerold,
    No Photo-flo in the plastic reels, thanks for the tip!

    During the Summer, to keep the temps down to 20C, I use ice cubes or put a frozen 0.5 liter bottle of water in the last square hole.

    Lack of support: I'm looking for a second just for the parts, especially circuit boards.

    Short answer yes...
    The longer one, yes it god for that just take som 10-15% of the time if there are no rotations times available.
    The other reason is that you use only the half chemistry at rotaion ..
    so go for it and good luck

    I have my six bottles set up as follows:

    1) Developer
    2) Stop Bath
    3) Fixer
    4) Water Rinse
    5) Permawash
    6) Rinse (to clean the lift and flush the system)

    Its a great system. I do 8x10, 4x5, 120, 35mm, 16mm and Minox with the Jobo processor.
