I fill a 5 gal bucket with either tank water or water with Prime. I use this water to wash/rince ALL filter media including pads etc. Whether or not chlorinated water will impact my bacteria population is a science experiment I would prefer to pass on. Since consistancy in any aquarium is a key to success, I adopt any and all practices geared towards maintaining that consistancy.
