Default Best device to control chemical temperature

For as long as I can remember I did it the old fashion way. I did it by fiddling with the hot and cold water at the tap. Then keeping an eye on it with a thermometer. Thank goodness you get some degree of forgiveness in black and white processing.

That all changed with the addition of a new addition to the kitchen. The Sous Vide. Lol who would of thought, well after checking the web I found out once again I was a late comer to a good idea. In this case it was better late to the party than never coming.

Check it out. SOUS VIDE. It will open a new way to cook plus will help solve your water temperature control issues.

The way I've long controlled the temperature of B&W chemicals, tanks, and water is to store water and everything else in a darkroom that is maintained between 65 and 75 degrees.

When it comes to B&W my room temp is spot on most of the times. Not much to worry about. But I really want to do the color thing. Heck I even bought a color head for my enlarged 15 years ago. So I want to start with e6 then move to prints.

I tried e6 back when I was a tadpole. I though I would skimp on the temp control. And of course I was wrong.
