Post by Hermie escape artist » Mon Oct 08, 2018 4:45 am

Hi if I leave my water sit out for couple days,
It's in gallon jugs and have lids on ...if that makes a diff,
Then I dont need to use the water conditioner at all right ??

I know that's how it works for fish easnt sure if hermie's water would be ok ??

Depends on the water. Some water supplies add chloramine, which is a stable compound and still has similar effects to chlorine - hence why its used. In a lot of cases, trace amounts of heavy metals can also lead to issues as well, which is pretty much present in all but the purist water supplies!
