Just adding cold water is good as it simulates rain fall
The water you drain from the tank is full of nitrates which are good for the garden plants
Also adding hot water from a tap is not good for a few reasons
1. It could be water that sits in a tank above your house
2. The water from the hot tap is full of scale we all descale our kettle but we never descale put boiler
3. Would you make tea or coffee from a hot tap or even drink water from the hot tap its not safe to drink and if its not safe to drink its no good for my fish
I really have no clue where half your post came from. The water changers are a great tool. I live in a apartment so no garden or use of any garden hose. The water changer goes from my bathroom sink to my tank (about 10-15) feet. It makes things ALOT easier.
What are your talking about hot water and tea and coffee? You lost me there. Who said fill a fish tank with hot water. You temp match the best you can and simply flip the valve and it will fill the tank with temp watch water. You add Prime or other conditioners to the tank also...
What's a "hot tap?" anyway, My tap water gives me the option of cold or hot with this amazing option to use both to make warm water also.
You said adding cold water is good I respectfully disagree and the tank water is full of nitrates? Not really. My nitrates on a bad day maybe 10ppm. That's not "loaded" with nitrates. Also, I like to have a bucket of tank water to clean my sponges etc in.
"We all descale our kettle but never descale put boiler?"
You got me there. Then you went off on this hot water thing which honestly gave me a headache
I'm sorry if this post comes off hard but I'm just being honest. I really have no idea what your talking about BUT I'm interested to know.
Please feel free to elaborate on this if you'd like.
