 I  was  wondering  what  exactly  does  water  aging  do  ?  
 
 The  things  that  I  know  are.
 1.  It  removes  chlorine.  I  believe  it  evaporates  after  some  time.
 2.  All  the  solid  particles  settle  down.
 
 
 I  recently  bought  two  containers  to  store  water,  mainly  to  age  it  to  put  in  my  aquarium.  I  was  just  curious  what  benefits  does  it  have  to  age  water  and  use.

 Wondering  why  without  knowing  the  benefit  you  would  buy  two  containers  to  age  it   Exclamation   Very Happy  Some  people  says  it  evaporates  the  chlorine  as  you  said.  But  if  you  have  chlorine  i  would  suggest  use  a  chlorine  conditioner  like  Seachem  Prime  etc  which  you  can  get  in  local  shop.  I  doubt  aging  will  practically  help  in  anyways  and  also  whats  the  proof  that  chlorine  was  removed..  Will  you  test  each  time..  better  to  use  conditioner

 I  purchased  containers  so  that  i  dont  run  out  of  water  !  Every  other  day  there  is  some  or  the  other  water  problem.
 Aging  is  just  a  part  of  water  storage  Wink

 It  is  well  documented  that  chlorine  escapes  in  air,  to  speed  up  the  process  normally  an  air  stone  is  dropped  in  water.
 The  same  effect  can  be  obtained  by  use  of  anticholrine  which  is  basically  Sodium  hypochlorite  or  hypo.
