Ozone q

From Milwaukee DPW:
Ozone replaced chlorine as the primary disinfectant when ozone systems were installed at both plants in 1998. Ozone destroys illness-causing microorganisms, controls taste and odor, and reduces chlorinated disinfection byproducts. With ozone in place, the Water Works is poised to comply with upcoming stringent regulations. Ozone is applied to raw water before coagulation. The ozonated water then follows the conventional treatment train of coagulation, sedimentation and filtration.

After looking into water quality out of my tap, since I plan to add discus to a tank im courious what this exactly means for water treatment.

From reading the water quality report it appears they still use either chlorine or chloramine to treat the water. This is normal as the water HAS to have some disinfecting agent as it travels though the pipes and ozone doesn't last that long.

So if it were me I would call and find out exactly what they are using chlorine or chloramine and treat the water with a good water treatment that will neutralize what they use. Or use Seachem Prime and forget about it.
