Tap Water

If you absolutely-positively had to use tap water for your cycle...how would you go about treating it. I understand about dechlorinating and such...anything else need to be done?

Thanks!

There's numerous products out there to condition your water. Best bet is to go to your lfs and ask what products they carry for such use.

Or, what I did was went to the supermarket, and bought a whole bunch of gallons of spring water, but it was the safest route. And for 30 gallons, it only cost me 18 bucks.

I use distilled wate for my changes and topoffs. You will be better off than with spring or drinking waters.
