Certainly cheaper that way. Is there any definite evidence that tap water would be bad?

Think I'll probably do as you do and occasionally add the water treatment as a bonus calcium source.

I think there are suggestions again on both side of the tap water debate.

There was a thread not so long ago in the snakes section about whether tap water was good or not. The majority seem to use it although some filter it and some wil probably serve it in a crystal pitcher with ice and a wedge of lemon!

All my animals have and do get 'council pop' to drink and I've never had any problems!
