Re: Is tap water ok?

I just read this thread yesterday and thought I'd comment.

Am very surprised that nobody mentioned (unless I missed it) that they give their bird filtered water from Brita, Pur, or any other charcoal filtered water.
I just took my 12 week old Conure for his first vet visit and the vet was ADAMANT to not giving filtered water. She said that the charcoal filter does develop bacteria over time and although not un-safe for us, IS for the bird.

My tap water is o.k. But I started using a filter a couple years ago just for better taste. When I pour the tap water into the pitcher you can definitely smell the chlorine.
