Short washing times for films : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I saw a .pdf which described a way to wash films using vastly less water. I've forgotten where I saw it. Any help would be much appreciated Yaakov Asher Sinclair.

With the use of Heico Perma Wash, they state that you can get away with somewhere around a 30 second wash +-

I use RO (pure) water and fill and dump the tank 3 times in 10 minutes. Pure water has a great affinity for hypo, much more than tap water. I learned this trick from an old timer at Kodak many years ago, the same one that told me about developing slide film in C41 soup.
