Water Changes & dechlorination

Afternoon all,
When doing significant water changes, 15% or more, I typically add decholrinator to the water in a bucket before adding to the tank. However, lifting 5, 5-gallon buckets gets tiring. Do any of you successfully add the water directly to the tank via hose and add dechlorinator at the same time?
Thanks! Happy "fishing"
(sorry, couldn't resist, it's Friday and my brain is tired)

Yes. Thats probably what most people do. Add enough dechlorinator to treat the whole tank rather than just enough to treat new water, then fill the tank.
