    Don't know if it is still reality but a few decades ago some Cities in California made it illegal to sell or use Kodak Tray Siphon print washers as they wasted too much water. Could not even buy them in some of the Cities. Don't know if that is still the situation. Even though Drew uses one maybe he can check to see if it is realityi?

    I have been in Cal since 1961 and never heard of such a thing.

    I recall a rule, in CA when I was there, 70's

    'If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down'

    Then I was in OR, many signs

    'Don't Californicate Oregon'

    Never got to Washington or Alaska, the only states I missed

    Next life....

    Jim, my Uncle was dealing with Samy's Camera(LA) and needed to replace a Kodak Tray Siphon and was told they could not carry or sell them because of the restriction. A few decades ago - when A&I was going big with Kodachrome processing.

    It must have been an LA problem. Water was short in San Diego as well, but tray siphons were available in the stores I frequented.
