That's a good idea, I've never thought of that. Now you've got me thinking!a 20-30gal tank to act as the preparation point. Put the smaller tank next to the main tank with a cheap aquarium heater & a pond pump in it. Plumb the pond pump with a two way valve so that you can either pump water up to the main tank or just circulate water in the prep tank. You can then put in the RO water & tap water the day before a water change, heat it up, add whatever
Only if it's actually chlorine and not chloramine. Not many municipalities still use chlorine to treat the water. I think that the fact that chloramine doesn't evaporate before the water does is part of the reason it's used.Nutter said:If you can leave the mixed water sit for 24hrs then the chlorine will dissipate without the need to add chemicals.
Gotcha. That's an excellent reason to forget it. (And I'll have to try to remember that Australia uses chlorine. The info could come in handy for a user down the line)Nutter said:I need to try to remember that your water in the US is treated with chloramine rather than chlorine. In Aus our water is still treated with chlorine so I tend to forget.
