RE: Agyrotype


As well as letting it stand, you can boil it and use as soon as it cools.
Or you can get some stuff for treating tap water for putting into aquariums
(-ia?): cheap and economical - one drop per US gallon removes chlorine and
heavy metals instantly, or so it says on the label.  Fish and tadpoles are
quite happy in water so treated.

When was Don's original message posted? I never received it.

Anyhow, if chlorinated water was your problem, I would use a 5 gallon  
storage tank and leave water in it overnight before use. By the way,  
this is how I found out: we were picking blueberries at the Happy  
Berries, a pick your own berry farm. The water from their cooler was  
particularly sweet tasting, and we were told that it was simply tap  
water "aged" for 24 hours.

Just give it enough time for the chlorine to escape, Don.
