No sympathy from me.  My tap water is 80 f year round.  That is what ice and
fridges are for, to lower the temp of processing chems.  I lower everything
to between 68 and 75 f depending on the process and start with a tray or
tank of wash water at same temp.  Then I slooooooooooooooooooooooowly raise
the temp of the water in the tray/tank to 80 f.  As Richard Knoppow will
testify, modern films won't reticulate or have silver grain clumping if the
temp is changed slowly enough.  I raise the temp 2 degrees f every minute so
in about 5 mins and 5 changes of water I have gone from 70 f to 80 f.  Then
I let my filtered tap water do its thing for the rest of the wash cycle.

It's too damn hot to develop film!  My tap water is coming out at 85!  
I'm developing rolls of film in 45 seconds!
