    When I said drill a hole in the spout, there is no pressure in a faucet spout when the taps are tuned off.

    Temperature is an important variable. The example shown measures in 4 degree F increments which is pretty coarse. I would not cut corners on measuring temperature.

    I agree that the first link with the pet tank thermometer is not a good idea.

    And check this out; it's pretty cheap... (search "threaded thermometer")

    Automotive water temp gauge with NPT threads. 1/4 copper tee, some assorted adaptors, and you're done.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    There is a Delta One version avaiable at Calumet:

    I'm certain you could make something simpler than that using a T to allow access for the thermometer.

    clayne, that sounds like a good bet except that most automotive gauges I have seen don't go low enough.

    The Delta one on Calumet is of course a beauty, but as with most darkroom gear, it's function doesn't justify its price.

    McMaster has dial thermometers with standard plumbing threads on the back side. They list one for kitchen use for $35 with threads and a range of 0-200°F and an accuracy of ±1°. That may work.

    Another was is with a tubing compression fitting. Solder that on the tee, put the thermometer stem through and tighten the nut. That's how mine works.
    What bothers me is a darkroom in the laundry room. In my experience, laundry rooms are full of lint. I would never have a darkroom anywhere near one. Just IMHO.

    You are absolutely right. But it's either this darkroom or NO DARKROOM....

    Mine is next to the laundry. I ask all that empty the dryer lint screen to gently pull it from the dryer, lay it gently on the dryer, and then mist it with a little water pump spray bottle we keep on a shelf above the machine. That turns the lint into a damp mat. the screen goes back into the dryer, and the top of the dryer gets wiped with this soggy bit of lint, before it goes in the trash bin.

    The concrete floor is also painted, and I periodicaly vaccuum the laundry room floor, and around the appliances themselves whan vaccuuming the adjacent family room. This keeps the dust to acceptable levels.

    I have a pair of small room air filters in the laundry and darkroom. I turn them on in the morning when I am going to print that night, particularly in the winter when the relative humidity is low.
    my real name, imagine that.
