Tap Water Usable?

Starting a grow in soil and need to use some tap water. isn’t there a time that you have to let the water sit for the chlorine and other bad stuff to leave the water. I would search for the answer but it’s not working right now.

Thanks ahead of time.

if you do use tap water just collect some 2 liter soda bottles and fill them up then let them sit with the caps off for at least 2 days to let most of the chlorine and other harmful chemicals evaporate.

ive filled a fish tank before with straight tap water and the fishes died from the chemicals in the water so it cant be good for your plant, your slowly poisoning it.

City water? Well water? pH? EC/ppm?

How long is a piece of string? (more info)

Take your tap water to a *good* local aquarium shop and have them test it. Tell them you wanna set up a killer saltwater tank.

Another strike against ‘hot’ tap water; older hot water heaters put out a huge amount of sediment.

The aquarium place idea is brilliant!

I run cold tap water in to some old milk jugs and let it sit for a few days with the cap off. Not sure if this is chlorine or other bad things but, I do notice that after a few hours there are bubbles all over the inside of the jug. I thump the side and they float to the top. When I stop seeing bubbles form inside the jug, I use it.

But, I’ll be headed to an aquarium place tomorrow.
