Using a Nitrate sponge for tap water

Hi All.

I have quite high nitrate levels in my tap water, and I was wondering if I bought a nitrate removal sponge and then ran my tap water through it when filling up my bucket if then that would reduce the Nitrate levels?

Don't want to go and buy a sponge and then it doesn't wok that well if you know what I mean.

Thanks.

I couldn't imagine that it'd be so high that you'd need to sponge filter it prior to going through your tank's filters.

But then again, I'm no expert!

I've for readings of 50ppm for my tap water.

Here in the UK that's the max legal limit...
