Remove Chlorine Without Chemicals


Dear Aquaworld,

How do I take chlorine out of our water without using chemicals?

Dear Gordon,

There are a couple of ways to remove chlorine.  Passing tap water through a carbon filter will remove chlorine.  Another way is collect the tap water in a large plastic trash can or drum barrel and aerate it for at least 6 hours.  The aeration will gas off the chlorine.
