I'm not 100% sold on Alberta's research. He did an experiment on biochar and rock dust, which I don't agree with his scientific methods there. Otherwise, I like his gardening advice. Having said that, I cannot find any research on gardening with chloramine, so I may as well concede that the dirt does protect the bacteria enough to allow them to thrive, because you and someone else says it does good in your compost pile. However, that is not to say it doesn't kill beneficial bacteria. There are cases of leaky gut and irritable bowel, the latter disappears soon after they stop drinking chloramine water. Also, it kills the good bacteria in fish tanks, which ultimately can and will kill the fish. Some people get skin problems when showering with it, but that's likely an allergic reaction. Overall, I'm going to stick with my rainwater plan, but use chloramine water until I do. I'm one of those who doesn't like it when the government gives us our medicine, but neglects to come clean with ALL of their research... chloramine, Roundup and GMOs, etc.
Does anyone who does hydroponics use water with chloramine? I don't know enough about it to know if they count on bacteria in the water or not. If not, I wonder if direct contact damages the plants. I know there are some pissed off dope growers on the subject.
