Sounds hard to believe but I would suppose they know better than I would. I'm tired of running scores of gallons of water down the drain just to wash one roll like Kodak recommends. Neither I nor the planet can afford that when I must go through dozens of rolls a month.
I've kept with the Ilford method since I restarted my own B&W processing a couple of years ago. I always hated "wasting" water before...I'm not a fanatical environmentalist, just think that it's sensible to use our resources carefully.
