Use washing machine hoses- more
If you go this "soft route" rather than real pipes just realize
that if the hose fails when you are not around, it floods the room unless
you turn off the water before the hoses after using darkroom each
December 29, 2006, from Lloyd Erlick,
I had this set-up for almost fifteen years. The hoses lasted fine. I was
always ready for them to leak, but it never happened.
I found it was very convenient to use the type of water shutoffs that are
installed behind washing machines. They have a long straight handle, and
need only a ninety degree turn to open or close. Quick and easy. I put
them in thinking I'd shut off the pressure on my strings of washer hoses
when not in use, but after a while I got lazy and just left them
I used the cheap black ones, not the nice stainless steel braided
Even though I had a good experience, I'd still say make sure a burst in
one of the hoses cannot cause a catastrophe in your darkroom. Best way is
to shut them off when you're not there...
