You mean to drink? I wouldnt go pouring chlorine into the drinking water, but normal tap water is fine. There is only a small percentage of chlorine in it, but tap water also carries many minerals that a water p urifier would get rid of, and perhaps cause more severe health problems for the reptile.

Hope this helps.

I have a large jug that I fill with tap water and let sit out overnight. I *think* this gets rid of the chlorine, if there is a large enough surface area. I figure the chlorine would dissipate in a snake's open water bowl anyway, but for my rats/mice, since their water is in water bottles, this ensures that the water they are getting has already been de-chlorinated.

There is a product that you can buy at the fish stores that declorilizes water. You add it and it makes it safe for all aquatic creature. Its a good sized bottle...very cheap and goes a long long way. Sitting water or distilling water takes alot of time. A bucket outside to capture rain water is another option...but in the city i would wonder what else you would gather. Your best bet is to buy this treatment chemical, it will not remove beneficial minerals...just chlorine..hope this helps

aquatic turtles will do just fine in chlorinated city water. Turtles are hardier then you give them credit for. I would suggest you don't dechlorinate the water, because it can help keep the water a little cleaner. I have two aquatic turtles, both in untreated city water, they are fine.

Sodium thiosulfate eliminates ALL chlorines and chloroamines INSTANTLY from the water. Any laboratory will carry the stuff. Its not expensive.

How do you go about obtaining stuff from labs though? I didn't think they were allowed to sell chemicals to the public?

For all we know, Favelle is a mad scientist, and they sell it to him for cheap in bulk for all his "experiments"........

haha j/k, ok that joke sucked.

Linds, it can probably be purchase from a local university/college.
