bottled water in the tank?

Postby Brad_608 on Wed Feb 02, 2005 4:10 am

I know its ok
just want to know how good.

I've been using tap with dechlorinater,
and ran through carbon filters :shock: .
so it has to be better then that.
thing is my local food store has one
of those jug refill centers and
I can refill a 5 gl. for $1.95, if I did
weekly 5 gallon changes in the 55 gl. tank
that would only be 8-10$ a month.
at 10 gl. a month only 4.00.

this has to be better.

No tds meter yet , so no reading .
anyone got an extra to trade/sell :lol:

my tap is good water by the way
( condo has a good water filter)
and all my critters and corals are doing great
but I know it's not what I need to be puting(?) in my tank.

was thinking of getting denise's ro unit
but if this bottled is clean enough then
I would rather not deal with an ro, filters.

what tds does most bottled water have?

denise looking for anything to trade for it :lol: ?



I found a reefer living right here in town
on the net so maybe he can help me
out with a tds reading on my tap and
the bottled water to be sure.

I'll take it and would appreciate ya letting me use the meter till the next meeting or my next trip and will help any way I can.

I have lots of frags
( about 10-15 species that are fragged and several of the same spec.)
and will have several more by this weekend.
and even more by the time ya want them.
basically tell me what your looking
to have in the tank and I can get it for you.

PM sent
Thanks so much
