Simon,

Good point on the Blix. I suppose I could. It is a lot easier for me to worry about only heating up one of the two. Obviously the developer temperature is more important than the blix so that's what I chose to heat up. I don't mind heating up the blix at the same time, I'm thinking I will just stop keeping tabs on the exact temperature (which is usually my procedure)..I've also noticed when I do a quick one-off roll or two using bw tanks that the temperature of the chemistry causes, I think, the plastic to slightly swell which in turn causes leaking when agitating....This doesn't happen when the chemistry is at room temperature..

Finally, is there an idea on just how much bleach one is supposed to use for the bypass process? Ratio, or?

Thanks.
