Keep in mind developing is 3.5 minutes, so even if you turn the tap off once you reach the right temperature, it won't change much.
Hi Heterolysis,
This set up could work for me ;-)
But I was wondering. Do you keep the Patterson tank - while developing - also inside the bath to keep it at the right temperature? Or do you keep only the bottles with chemicals in the bath at the right temperature?

And how do you go about tilting the tank: continuous or every XX seconds?
