Unhappy water smell chlorines

i dunno if u bros noticed in few last months, my tap water is smell chlorines n its really bad, u pour the water into the bucket n still can smell the chlorine oozing out from the water.
my solution to this irritating problems is a good water filter system n anti chlorine/chloramine.
well since i dun have a good water filtration system (only usual carbon filter), i circulate the water to make sure the chlorine can break free from the water n add some anti chlorine/chloramine when doing a wc.

Mine wasnt that bad as u mentioned....currently my home is using a kind filtration system that enable us to drink straight out the system rite after being filtered. Normally we keep the water in hugh per gallon bottles like those of AQUA bottle (AQUA=local mineral drinkable water). But maybe my question is....Is it actually good for the fish?

Yes. but it takes quite awhile to get a few bottles rdy to be used for the tank. I probably should snap some pics sometimes and show it.

Guys...how about aging the water in a big container and putting airstone and some anti-chlorine? maybe your water utility company puts too much chlorine.

Of coz we would wish to be able to reach that kind of water in their nature.
All in all may it be large container water or those of mine, i think we juz do our best in our possible way should be cool enough.
