There are some minor environmental concerns with disposal of undepleted selenium toner, so the current preferred practice is to mix selenium toner with plain water only so that it can be saved for reuse.
I know and good point. I failed to mention that for the middle tray in step 5 I use selenium mixed in distilled water. I use HCA in trays 1 and 3.
