Do I need to remove the chlorine from my water before I brew?
If you are on a municipal water supply, it is important that you “deplete” any added chlorine or chlorimine prior to starting your SoilSoup brew. Listed below are a few options for getting chlorine out of your water:

1. After filling up your pail or tub with water, run the BioBlender for a minimum of 2 hours in the water without any nutrient or compost mixed in.
2. After filling up your pail or tub of water, let it sit uncovered for 2 to 3 days. The chlorine will gas off.
3. If you want to speed up the process, purchase a water filter that removes chlorine.

We also recommend utilizing test strips to confirm the chlorine has been removed.
