Well, some interesting developments. Spoke with the City of New Smyrna's Water Chemist, and he acknowledged that the city does have an issue with occasionally high nitrites in the water. He cited construction and many residences that are not occupied year round (this is the Cliff's Notes version). He suggested running our faucets for 20 or 30 minutes to help get fresher water into our system.
Long story short, I was skeptical, but it actually worked! My nitrites went down for 2ppm to .25ppm, or perhaps lower. The chemist also did a water test and will be sending me detailed results next week.
I may just set up a barrel in my garage to treat water for the aquarium, but we'll see. Either way, I've at least found some options for tackling the situation.
