>chloramine? Does "Prime" cover chloramine as well?
yes, it removes chloramine.
> What about products that claim to "break the chloramine bond"?
>Isn't that like adding ammonia to the tank?
No, breaking the "chloramine bond" converts chloramine into ammonia
and chlorine, but then Prime reduces the chlorine to chloride and
complexes with the ammonia, thereby "removing" the ammonia. The
plants or bacteria eventually remove this ammonia-Prime however, so
you don't need to worry about this building up.
