I use a couple water rinses between Xtol and fixer, which is Kodak Rapid Fix
w/o hardening agent.

My standard developer is Xtol 1:3, and it's very close to exhaustion by the
time I'm done developing, anyway.  After hearing a few here on the LUG talk
about water as their only stop bath, I experimented.  I haven't been able to
tell any difference between using a real stop bath vs. water, so I now use
one less chemical.  :)
