Your best bet, and I know it sounds bad, but use the well water if you have a dechlorinator. Also, if you have a Brita filter or the like, that will tak out the copper, chlorine and other nasties.

He`s got well water so it should not have chlorine in it unless he adds it himself. you dont want it to go down too fast. A gallon or two today should be OK till store opens.
