RE: Archival washing at home

for large prints I've been using an old standby-- the kodak tray siphon.

Subject:	Archival washing at home

I'm starting to get my alt lab all set up at home; if all goes to plan, I'll
have a NuArc in my possession about a week from now.

That said, I've run into a bit of a logistical dilemma that I was hoping
someone might have an answer to: archival washing (mostly for pt/pd prints).
I live in a rented apartment, which means I can't touch the plumbing.  This
also means that any "external" plumbing I rig up needs to be easily taken
down and concealed, as my landlord periodically inspects all the apartments
in my complex.

I plan to make fairly large prints, so the bathtub seems like the best place
to set something up.

I'm curious what other printers have rigged in their bathrooms/kitchens/etc.
(pictures would great if possible) for their final wash, and whether anyone
has any ideas for me.
