    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.

    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!

    I use hypo clear. It uses less water, it's less wasteful, I can get my negatives dry faster (since I will finish washing earlier). And most of all, it gets the stain out of Kodak films. I do not like to over fixate my films, since I already fix them for 6min in rapid fixer.
