I live on the Upper East Side, Water Changes?

There really wasn't too much damage on the UES from Hurricane Sandy.

Is it okay to do water changes again?

Thanks!

Be a good idea to double up on your water treatment too--reports indicate they're upping chlorine in a lot of the systems to help ensure human safety.

Okay so I'll double the amount tap water conditioner I use. I may even wait another couple days.. How long do you folks think there will be an increased amount of chlorine in the water? I'm sure there is no certain answer to that last question, just wonder what everyone thinks.

Thanks for all the input everyone!
