My boyfriend did some speedy research that revealed about a week of standing for the gas to evaporate. Any other ideas? I don't believe I have anything that can hold 5-7 gallons of water to sit but might be able to pick up some dechlorinator in a day or two.
If the source water contain's only chlorine,,then letting it set for 24 hour's will do the job.
If however the water contain's Chloramine (chlorine/ammonia),then dechlorinator is best bet.
I have heard that chloramines will dissipate after a week,but have no first hand expierience with letting it set for a week.
