"Community property" darkroom equipment, in my experience, seems to suffer
from a "tragedy of the commons" -- no one keeps the stuff clean and in good
working order, unless an obvious problem arises.
I keep my plastic (nylon) Paterson reels pristine between
uses. Cleanliness is next to godliness (and next to
impossible). ;-) They have yet to fail me, though as I go ever-deeper
into the digital darkroom, they get less and less use...
