Water is water, your cycle is your cycle.
Ofcourse is tap-water clean in the way that it has no NH3
But that doesn't make it cycled. (water can't cycle, your tank does)
Once you put in xx ammonia which equals the daily load of the fish
once that has been taken away within 24 hours you'r tank is cycled.
As-long you don't add anything in it, raw ammonia or anything else of value.
It wil take you forever since nothing wil happen.
In the end you throw all your fish in to find out they dead by ammonia or nitrite poisoning the following morning.
