    So I was looking for a Hass Intellifaucet D250 and wound up buying a used K375...

    I got it for $80 on the 'Bay, so I figured it was worth a shot. The seller took it out of a working environment, but doesn't have the transformer, so I'll have to figure that out, but I figured for money, it was worth a shot.

    Does anyone here use one of these? Did I just make a colossal, spur-of-the-moment mistake, or will this work well for a darkroom?

    Sounds good to me! Last time I checked, Hass was still in business, so he could supply the transformer and any replacement parts.

    I think power supplies are available in the parts section on the website, otherwise you could call or email them.

    I have found them to be very responsive for questions. I have a 250 which I obtained 2nd hand, and I love it, it is SOOOO much better than a thermostatic mixing valve!

    I dealt with Bernard Hass a number of times over the last forty years - first as a metrologist in the US Army and subsequently as a metrologist with ETHICON Inc. and the gentleman was always a pleasure to work with in everything from acquistion of instruments to arranging for overhaul. bdial is correct in regard to their responsiveness and I wouldn't hesitate to give them a call!

    I have the K250, which is exactly the same except it runs down to .5 gal/min instead of 1 gal/min. If you don't mind the higher minimum flow rate, the K375 is terrific. I'm sure Hass would convert yours to the lower flow rate if you wanted. The Hass power supply is very high quality, so I'd recommend it over the junky stuff available elsewhere. The K series controllers are extremely nice because you can set it to any temperature, see the actual temperature readout, adjust pressure, time water delivery, and manually control the valves.

    Thanks guys.

    How important is the lower flow rate? I've always used a higher one?

    If you have an Ecowash or otherwise use a very low flow rate to wash prints, it's important. If your normal water usage is < 1 gal/min, it would be a factor--otherwise, not so much.

    I have a large plexi Gravity Works vertical print washer. I suppose I might use a slower flow for that? But I don't think Keeping it flowing a little more would hurt?

    The only thing that would hurt is your pocketbook, depending on the cost of water where you live--the prints won't mind a bit.

    Hass doesn't convert t a lower flow rate. Just lower the flow on the K375 to the minimum setting which should be 15 or 20%. It will work better at the lower setting. Let us know how it modulates at the lower rates. I have a K250 that I paid a whole lot more for it and works great. If you decide you don't need yours, PM me.
