Why would you need to age the water? This does nothing if you are using dechlorinator."Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." Carl Sagan

Not very reasonable if you have 150 gallons and want to do 50% water changes either. You'd have buckets all over the place that would need to be heated.

I have a 55 gallon barrel that I use to age. I age the water because my pH comes out the tap at 7.5 and rises to 8.4 after ageing. I do this to avoid the pH fluctuation when I fill the 150. I still use Prime for declor just before it goes into the tank, declorination is not my reason for ageing the water but an added benefit is that instead of using three capfuls of Prime to declorinate the entire tank after a water change, I only use one in the barrel.
