For what it's worth, I use Prime and I have a country well with no chlorine or chloramine. I use it because of it's other capabilities (see below).
Aged water will readily give up chlorine, but not chloramine which is why more and more municipalities are switching to it. It would seem to me that the cost of a 55g container, pump, space, etc... outweighs the benefit when adding a conditioner seemingly resolves all issues. PrimeŽ is the complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and salt water. PrimeŽ removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. PrimeŽ converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tanks biofilter. PrimeŽ may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. PrimeŽ detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. PrimeŽ also promotes the production and regeneration of the natural slime coat. PrimeŽ is non-acidic and will not impact pH. PrimeŽ will not overactivate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.
