Hey reefers,

I had a bag of ice in my sump, 200 gallon acro system.

Pulled the bag out and noticed a hole. I guess one gallon of straight tap water got into the system.

I don’t have any RO water made to do large water changes. I am running a poly filter pad and am putting some carbon in.

Is there anything else I can do to remove the heavy metals and other contaminants from the RO water that got in?

Thank you so much! Can’t believe this happened.

Id use the rest of the ice to make a cold glass of beer and drink it and relax

What happened is a non-issue

Thanks so much everyone. I might do a water change tomorrow when the water is ready.

Anything else I can do other than not worry, run the poly filter and carbon?

Thank you very much

Literally do nothing.

early in my reefing career I used tap water. Plenty of other reefers did as well. Many still do.
