City tap water
    #2300624 - 02/04/04 02:40 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Has anyone ever had problems getting jars to colonize and determined, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it was because of something in their tap water? It seems to me like the chlorine should boil out and that the minerals in hard water should only help, not harm, whatever it is you grow in your jars.

Never had a problem with city water. I'd imagine that the chlorine would be your friend in this case. Besides, the chlorine evaporates pretty quickly

its the alkalinity of the hard water, and the magnesium content... lots of people near me go through the problem... thats how I knew right away what it was.

My city tapwater is about as hard and chlorinated as it gets. It's never caused a problem growing mushrooms.
