    Question 3 years ago on Introduction

    Thanks for the schematic. I built something kind of similar based on your post. I do have a question about how you handle waste water though. I find that when I either clean out ink or emulsion that the ink/emulsion gets suspended in the water, and neither settles out (in any reasonable amount of time) nor gets filtered by my canister filters (30 and 5 micron). The water coming out of my final filter is strongly tinted of the ink or emulsion. Have you noticed this problem, and if so, how have you handled it?
