Re: cleaning of Epson 3880 maintenance tank

I also thought that it was only the seen printing that used ink thus a very efficient way of keeping the nozzles clear in dry weather, however, Epson Aust, printmaker, and my regular salesperson ( who started the ball rolling on this subject) say that on the 3880 it does a routine that uses and redirects ink, and a lot of it, to the waste?? 'cos I cant actually see that happen via a clear waste jar I am at their mercy, I had difficulty accepting that hence asking a few different folks???

What I will say tho is since I quit doing the checks and started printing a lot more the waste tank usage % NUMBER value has been stastic now for four weeks.

I made up an image in Photoshop similar to the the nozzle check and may use that instead of the nozzle check to save ink and also avoid the switch to photo black each time ( I use matte black to print).
