    Summer water is warmer! What temp is yours now?

    I am happy to report my Chicago cold tap water is running at 68 degree F, or 20 C.

    This means I no longer need to blend hot water for a while...

    So what temp is your water and what is your location?

    I realize the other half of the world is entering winter, your temps are wanted also.

    HaHa. 68F? My cold water doesn't run that low in the winter! Right now--since we've been running about 111 - 118F nearly everyday for the past couple of weeks--my "cold" water seeps from the tap at about 84F. Blending with hot water has never an issue for me; I need cold water from the fridge to hit 68F. I guess when ya live in the Sonoran Desert of the southwest one must expect warm tap water!!

    Same here as Randy Moe. The water is deep underground, and cold when pumped up. Living in a small city is good.

    In summer my "cold" water in my darkroom can get up to 72F or so. That's why I always process film at 75F.

    Right around 68F, give or take a couple degrees. I have been developing at 70 or 72F, so no problem. I probably will not have to cool the water down at all this summer.

    I let the water run for a while, and the thermometer read 60 degrees. That's about 4 degrees warmer than the sea water here off the north Olympic Peninsula. (That's why local kayakers take classes on getting quickly back into the kayak if they capsize.)

    Re: Summer water is warmer! What temp is yours now?

    I've lived in New England most of my life. I had been away from film photography for 15 years or so until last year. I remember that summertime cold water would be in the low 60s F. We moved to a new place last year and I set up a darkroom and started developing last winter. This weekend I developed some film for the first time in a few weeks, and was surprised that the cold water is 75F. I'm hoping it doesn't get any warmer so I don't have to get into chilling the "cold" water.
