So how many think this is an ok option ? How many think it's a bad idea? Thanks
it is a bad idea.You will be starting out with who knows what chemicals in your tank from the city,county,water supply.Your algae problem will just become worse to.You would be better off getting a RoDi
unit and use it first at your new home to make water,if possible.
