    Paterson vs Kaiser RC paper washer

    The water drains through a hose. I sit mine on the draining board next to my laundry sink. The drain hose sits in the sink.

    Thank you. This looks to be the main difference compared to Kaiser. The hose makes it much more convenient I would think.

    Thanks miha. I had read this very informative article before but had forgotten what it had said on water movement by replacement. It is still quite a high rate if I have understood things correctly. Maybe i am not wasting water after all.

    Totally agree, The Kodak Tray Siphon is a most efficient wash set up when mounted on a slightly larger tray. I usually float a soft sponge on top to keep the prints under the water and place the prints back to back to maximize the flow over their surfaces.
