You are spending a lot of time and money getting your setup juts right. Get yourself a RO
. I use one for my municipal supply. Check for threads on RO
and you'll find many recommendations. I got the Typhoon III for airwaterice.com but you might want to think about getting the dual home/reef system.
experience I used to used NovAqua/Amqel from Kordon for chlorine/chloramine removal.
If you go this route just use Amqel for your water changes. From the Kordon product specifications:
"Use caution when adding liquid AmQuel to water that has a poor buffer reserve (as indicated by problems maintaining a stable pH). Using AmQuel in these conditions can cause a sudden lowering of pH. To prevent a pH drop, use either AmQuel Plus Buffers or Pure Dry AmQuel instead of liquid AmQuel.
The advantages of using NovAqua are:
1. Provides a protective colloid coating on the fish's body during injury"
