I agree that this works just as well as any dechlorinator.  I used to do
this when I had an apartment with a porch that I could hide the buckets in.

I've gotten a lot lazier about this and less tolerant of the clutter, so I 
just fork out the 3 bucks for a dechlorinator. I've been able to significantly
reduce my total maintenance time and junk space for my "show" 45 gal.
