Hi All

Brand new to AP and to this site, this site is chock full of info, thank you!

I put my system together yesterday 40 gallon tub for the fish tank and 25 gallon tub for the grow bed, using Affnan's bell siphon(the siphon worked first time no problems, thank you Affnan)

I find out today that my water has chloramine in it, so how to get rid of it?

I have read some about Vitamin C and that it might be able to remove it?

Since I have not added any grow media yet, what would be the downside to trying the Vitamin C method.

If the Vitamin C removes it, will the Vitamin C at some point dissipate from the water so not to affect bacteria growth?

If not the Vitamin C method, would using bottled water be an option?

Any recommendations on a test kit for chlorine?

Mark

There are a few references to "Vitamin C" here.  Specifically, the Ascorbic acid form at 20-30mg/gal has worked well for me.  

For smaller systems I use an R/O filter.

Thank you for the information.

I hopefully will be putting together a bigger system in the future and will give that a try.
