Yes I do connect to the mains water when I move the darkroom (this is the 3rd move). I normally take a spur from the nearest point in the house and run the pipe underground to the darkroom. However, the house I now live in had an outside tap near to where the darkroom went so I picked up the supply there. In the 15 or so years that I've done this the water supply has frozen only twice and both were during brass monkey weather. I do make sure that the pipes are well insulated. Hopefully, Both me and my wife don't ever wish to move house again and I have said my next move will be in a pine box, or cardboard, when I pop my clogs.
