I have been making RO
water and storing it in a 35 gal
Rubbermaid container. The container was purchased brand new, I just rinsed it with hot water and started to trickle RO
into it. Well, I am concerned because the plastic has a strong "rubber-plastic" smell to it. I tasted a cup of the RO
water from it and it definitely has that plasticky taste.
Is this water safe for my brand new aquarium (not running yet)?
Will a carbon pad take care of it? Or, am I worried for nothing?
