Hi all,
Ok, my geeko-thoughts were going again tonight when I wondered............What happens to the bacteria, etc. in our systems if we drink water from the tap with Chlorine/Chloramines in it? Are we "Uncycled"?

Things that make ya go "Hmmmmmmmm" ;D

Same thing that happens when we eat yogert i guess...?

I dunno Steve. http://smilies.sofrayt.com/%5E/k/dontknow.gif

I tend to think I am 100% Cycled. Re-cycled that is.....

Hi all,
I was wondering if the water would destroy the good and bad bacteria in our systems.....kinda like rinsing a cycled sponge in tap containing Chlorine/Chloramines(death for the bacterial colonies). Isn't there anyone that can answer my "Ask Jeeves" questions :( Who's up for an experiment? I'll make the Chlorine/Chloramine cocktails ;) Damn, my brain just goes off on tangents sometimes and I WANT ANSWERS NOW ;D Now where'd I put that book of useless knowledge again.
