chloramine is a tougher chemicle but is still chlorine based, it may actually take double the dosage to rid yourself of the chloramine. we have the same problem here where i am located and because they use chloramine it doesn't evaporate as easily so even filling a few buckets and letting them sit doesn't always do the trick, i had my dad weld up a filtration system that i can hook to my python it's a bit bulky but it works on the same principal as an anderson home water purification system, even uses the same stuff as the anderson filters.... it seems to work fine and i don't have the issue that most have in the area with the tap water quality, the ph in our tap water is super high like 7.9 roughly depending on the time of the month i am doing my water changes. the set up is pretty simple for the system i have adapted, i am trying to come up with a way to make it more mobile and a bit less bulky but the idea is to have the water feed into a pipe that's atatched to a larger pipe with a screen insert in it, the water feeds into the main canister where my anderson water pure pellets are then it feeds into another chamber where i have cheese cloth to make sure none of the filter media is sucked through and then out another screened piece of pipe and into the rest of the length of tubing and into the tank, i am eventually going to purchase a home water filtration system, out of need for my fish health. lol.
