Re: Re:probably wasn't the chlorine
I believe that our local water utilities in south Florida put
somewhat higher levels of chloramine in the water than most other places.
It sometimes takes triple the normal amount of Ammo-Lock 2 to eliminate it.
I don't even bother with holding and aerating water because it makes so
little difference. I simply use the treatment when adding water. Here, it
is the only way to go unless you have incredibly good filtration systems.
