Re: [APD] Chloramines in my tap water

Do any of you have any information on using tap water containing chloramines

Any one have any treatments that would work?

Slow filtering through a carbon block filter will remove it without the Daphnia-killing stuff (formaldehyde-like) that's in dechloraminators.

That said, don't bother. My experience, with moderate chloramine levels (typically 2 ppm) when I lived in Fremont, was that Daphnia are not bothered by either chlorine or chloramine, anyway.
