Initial Bleach (kodak) without starter? Fuji fp-230b


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! We bought a second hand film minilab Fuji FP-230b. It was cleaned and reconditioned and would like to start it as soon as possible. We're in Romania and could not find Bleach starter. All the other chemicals are good to go. (all chemicals are kodak )
Is there any way to use the machine without the starter? Like a recipe to diminish the bleach power with more water or something?

Bleach starter is not essential, you can run without it.

You can't over bleach a film, the main issue is there is a small possibility of the bleach crystallising when it is too strong.

Maybe run it without any bleach replenisher for the first 50 films (disconnect the replenisher pump pipe)
