    Let's see - it appears to be stainless steel, so it probably won't rust. I'd say if you don't leave it out in the rain, it ought to last 200-300 years, or at least as long as the prints you wash inside it...

    placed the prints are not disturbed untill moved to the second

    three washes.

    I preceed the wash with a fix of A. Thiosulfate concentrate
    diluted 1:49. A rinse, a hca, a rinse, ALL one-shot, follow. The still
    water diffusion method of washing is, I believe, the most sure way
    to a uniformly archival washed print; no bubbles no eddies. Also,
    the Still Water Diffusion way of washing needs no plumbing,
    costs nothing, and uses very little water. Dan
    This additional information should have been included above.
    For an 8 x 10 print 5ml of 60% concentrate in 245ml of water
    are suggested. Also, I've all solutions at room temperature. Dan

    The washer is archival. It`s forty years old and still going strong.

    It makes archival prints on FB paper pretty well too. My wedding photographer friend was showing me some work finished in the 1960`s with that washer. They still look as new.
