    It is not the Delta that you have mentioned, but I have the following:

    Delta Water Temp II with Temperature Lock (approx $59 B&H)


    I have attached (I hope) a photo of how it is plumbed. It's not a very good photo, but I have a filter in line after the thermometer. I bought all of the other parts at a hardware store. It's not very pretty and I don't know if this is the right way to do plumbing for a darkroom, but it has worked for me and I'm quite happy with the cost and functionality of the Delta. No it doesn't automatically correct the water temperature, but I keep my eye on it and it doesn't really vary much unless I spend too much time in the darkroom and start running out of hot water. I must note, however, my darkroom is in a separate building from my home where the darkroom is the only use of water on that hot water tank.

    - I don't understand this recommendation. Would you mind explaining what you mean a little more?++

    I'm not the person that said the above, but - - - - Are you planning on doing any of the plumbing yourself? Have you ever done minor plumbing jobs like adding a faucet? If so, you can get a shower control valve from a large home center and use it as a temperature regulator. I use a Delta brand that cost me about 60 bucks. I can control the temperature to within a degree or 2 with no problems. It's cheaper than the "dedicated darkroom" controls. For example, the Hass is $500.00!

    If you want, look here for a picture of my faucet setup.
    Well put Dave, sorry for the cryptic post.

    When you say Hass Low Flow flow option, are your referring to Model D250 or Model 250 modified?
