to get rid of chlorine, just aerate and expose to sunlight for 24 hours.. for chloramine, i've seen some info that shows vitamin c will take remove them - well.. not remove, but break down.. 1000 milligrams for 50 gallons of water - it's not supposed to affect ph, but i'd still be careful and check after treatment

Mary - I'd stay away from Vitamin C or L-ascorbic acid.  Acids will lower pH.  I have a system in my basement and I've been using a BMS water filter.  See link.

I found one at Amazon for $95 dollars.  It simply hooks to your hose facet and then you connect a hose at the other end.  It's rated for 25K gallons/use.  You should check it out.  Let me know if you have any other questions.
