I'm not too worried about the developer. All three parts are included in the box, and the instructions for mixing them are pretty simple enough.

I've got stainless steel daylight tanks. I'll make sure I uncap after agitating.

Cool. I'll aerate mine the same way! I was going to pour the solution between beakers a few times, but that could get messy.

The big investment is the first 570ml, after that its a very frugal process.
Alright! I'll need about 450mL for my tank.

So: is that first 570ml also undiluted from the "kit"? Or did you dilute it with water somehow? I know earlier in the thread, people ascertained that we should use the bleach full strength…but there just doesn't seem to be enough there.

I just called Kodak about this…they told me to either buy a bleach starter, or to buy the Flexicolor SM Tank Bleach solution. I couldn't get them to tell me what was in the F2 bottle. I guess that's my big question: what exactly is in the F2 bleach bottle? Is it undiluted concentrate for making tank solution? It's called a "replenisher" in the z101 document, but how much different is it from the tank solution they sell?
