    The tank is a concern, the house is fitted with 2x 40 gallon tanks. I will see how the winter session goes and may be forced to swap out one of those tanks for a larger tank. That will mean...

    Fredrick,

    I use to process C-41 every day this way.
    The key was a small aquarium pump to circulate the water in the tub holding the tanks.
