Boiling Water and Chlorine

    Perhaps it's a silly question and the answer may be obvious, but does boiling water remove chlorine (and other substances such as chloramine) from it?

    Boiling will disapate the chlorine and break the chloro amine down into the two compounds, which is better than the whole but still not good.

    OK, thanks Dino. The reason I ask is not using boiled water for water changes. I asked because I heard chlorine in municipal water supplies supposedly causes cancer in people who drink that water. Isn't that scary? I personally NEVER drink tap water, but I do often use it for cooking. I am wondering if this is unsafe for me to do?
