I will be rotating my drums on a Unicolor Rotating Base and therefore need to find the best means of filling the tank to avoid uneven development.
As it happens, I have just succcessfully filled the drum with the required amount of water whilst rotating using a 1" bath overflow hose fitted to a funnel at one end and a washing machine waste 90 degree adapter at the other. The washing machine adapter fits into the central hole of the lid with about 0.5mm clearance so does not bind whilst rotating. I have just tried it out and the tank fills nicely with no spillage whatsoever. I just have to find something to mount it to now to allow it to stand independantly.
