Do i need to treat my tap water before I give it to my tort...I do not have well water
In my city no one I know can stand to drink the tap water. I just use a simple Pur water filter on the kitchen tap for drinking water for my animals. At the least it cuts down on chlorine. For soaks and baths I use tap. Our tap water is probably safe but I can't drink it without at least filtering it. So my animals drink filtered water too. I might be an overprotective mom though.
