Good Evening, EK,
I've always found Dektol to dissolve very readily. If I recall correctly, Kodak recommends a water temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit. I often used water at a somewhat higher temperature and never noticed any deleterious effects. D-76 was usually much more difficult to work with, and I always made double-sure that the water temperature was at or above what was recommended. After doing chemical preparation in several different communities, I am convinced that there are subtle differences in public water supplies which may make dissolution a little easier or harder.
