I have used that darkroom and the chemicals therein many times to great
success. It's difficult to troubleshoot your issue without either seeing
your negatives or watching you go through the process. Maybe you used the
wrong developer or the wrong dev chart or your water was too warm or the
tank you chose was faulty or the camera leaks, etc... I'd be happy to meet
with you and check your work next time, given a day or two's notice.
