    Comments about Paterson Film Washer Hose for Super System 4 Tanks:

    Required some home depot adapters to use with standard kitchen/bathroom sink. I got a long tipped aerator for the kitchen/bathroom faucet that plugs down into the rubber end. I also needed the smallest hose clamp that home depot had for the small end to keep the hose on the tank adapter. $ worth of hardware makes this thing a truly required accessory.

      Comments about Paterson Film Washer Hose for Super System 4 Tanks:

      This washer does a great job at washing your film in the Paterson 4 tanks. I had one dot of dust on an entire 36 exp roll of film. I had to fit it on my shower hose because it wouldn't fit on any of my sinks.

        May require a longer faucet spout than is standard on your faucet.

            Comments about Paterson Film Washer Hose for Super System 4 Tanks:

            Its a hose that fits in the top of Paterson tanks, what can I say, it works.

            Only downside is its a bit tough to use on conventional faucets without a bit of ingenuity. It looks like it was made to fit on a lab-style faucet tip (looks like a ridged cone, specifically made to have a hose fitted on the end).

              Comments about Paterson Film Washer Hose for Super System 4 Tanks:

              This is a replacement hose to the one that i have used in my darkroom since 1997. I hope it lasts just as long if not longer. It is attached to my faucet and used all the time. I never remove it. The only difference i can tell, is that my older hose was probably 1-1/2 inches longer, or maybe it just stretched over time.

                Comments about Paterson Film Washer Hose for Super System 4 Tanks:

                I develop my black and white film at home. I had one batch turn out a bit yellow after the prescribed wash time and felt something a little more sophisticated might be in order. This little hose fit the bill at a fraction of the cost of a machine. The black end fits tight in the patterson cone and flushes from the bottom up. The water is changed quickly and the light pressure washes the film clean. I was very pleased with my clean negatives.
