Dechlorinating Water - Question
 
Hi all,

I am a home beer brewer in addition to my other 'hobbies' and have a filter I use to remove chlorine 'taste' and other impurities from the water. It is essentially one of those canister type filters you get a home depot that you see people using to make calcium reactors and what not out of and it uses these filters.

My question is this - I don't want to have to lug a 5 gallon bucket all over the house and potentially ruin the laminate floor (that stuff and water just doesn't get along). Would using one of these filters be safe for adding water to the tank and not stress the fish? I was planning on adding Stress Coat anyway.

Thanks in advance.

If you are concerned about the chlorine or chloramine before and after that filter, there are test kits for chlorine. I have found a dip-stick style works just fine.
