Or buy a gallon of spring water from your gorcery store for <$1.00 . Tap water is the DEVIL. Even pressure cooked for a full hour @15 psi, it still contaminates jars. At least the tap water around here does. If it's been 5 days and no growth at all, you could still be in the game since no other colors are showing up. Sometimes germination takes longer than a week but usually not. If still no growth after 2 weeks, I'd toss them.

tap water is fine, dont listen to these ppl. The chlorine is gonbe after about a minute once boiling. I bet your jars are showing germination right now.

I dont think i would ever use my tapwater. I've killed too many fish and plants with it. If it wasnt for the water softener it might be ok. The fish people always said the salt from the water softener is what killed the fish. So i dunno, maybe boil the hell outta it first?
