Just to clear this and prevent further confusions, we should NOT use chemicals like "Cycle" and "Stress-Zyme" other than dechlorinators.
I find chemicals a waste of money. Dechlorinators are the most useful ones as they tend to eliminate chlorine, chloramine(depending on the brand) and other heavy metals.
There are other ways of removing chlorine. Let the water stand in the pail for 24 hours or overnight and the chlorine will be removed. Chlorine is a gas so it should dissipate in 24 hours.
