I plan on making a home darkroom to delelop balck and white film and prints. But I was wondering how much water is used. I currently print at the college I go to and I wash my prints in water for an hour. I was just wondering if anyone notices a difference in their water bill? I live in a city and I have municipal water with a water meter. Is there any tips for reducing water usage in the lab?

Thanks for the help

Peter

To cut down on water usage, and increase the archivability of your prints, use a hypo clearing agent, like Heico's Permawash. It will also save you lots of time.
