If one is certain that tapwater is treated with only chlorine, then leaving water to set for 24 hours would allow chlorine to dissipate.Is it necessary to use a water conditioner if I were to age tap water. I know I have seen it mentioned somewhere on the forum before that over time the chlorine will disperse or something like that when the water is left in a bucket.
nope, no need to let it stand you can just dump it in. i have not treated tap water for long periods in the past with no ill effects and i still do top ups without treating the water. my neighbor, who used to have 39 tanks did water changes without treating the water and never had problems.How would you all suggest doing this when doing a water change of 40-60 gallons of water though? On a smaller tank it seems a lot easier. Just wondering how I go about it just fill her up after dosing prime or vice versa. Or is it necessary to age the water as well?
