    Going through the California drought, I'm paying more attention to using hypo clear to reduce water use.

    One further point - if you wash in running water, the flow should be very slow and gentle. Kodak's recommendations are to either:

    a) use running water: "Run the wash water at least fast enough to provide a complete change of water in the container in 5 minutes"; or
    b) use a fill and dump regimen: "For rapid washing in a small tank, fill the tank to overflowing with fresh water and then dump it all out. Repeat this cycle 10 times."

    Greg Davis did some very useful work on this very subject, and there is a Stick Thread that reports his results: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/8...hing-test.html

    I worked for a graduate of Brooks and now long time friend. He made this film washer out of an old gallon milk jug with holes on the bottom and a tab cut on top. I made one and I've been using it for 30 years. Seems to work well.

    There are not any real facts any more you can deny global warming and extreme droughts ever happened in pre history to Peblo people in four corners.

    I use hypo clear followed by three tempered baths and we have too much water but need to use heat to get to 20C.

    Im a statistion, good luck.

    Your inability to stay on the subject QUOTE=Xmas;1618285]Yes but unless it rains in Aus or SCalfornia their reservoirs will empty cause they were sized too small.[/QUOTE] clearly shows that you are over your head. Even a poor statistician knows when they have lost an argument.

    It is only useful to think this way in the long term. In the short term, wasted water is just waste....it wastes resources used to clean annd deliver the water and it causes un-necessary hardship (again in the short term).

    I've always used HCA with both film and RC paper specifically because it reduces wash time. To do otherwise is foolish, wasteful and inconsiderate. Please do not waste.

    Or with fracking, removed out of the water cycle 'cos it's too polluted to do anything with.

    I accept Im a poor statistion and a scatter brain. But alas that won't reduce the effect of global warming long term.

    We have built on flood plains that flood every year even in drought!
    You guys are farming and fruit orchard in semi arid...

    You need water conserveration now.
