You might consider using a carbon block filter to remove chlorine and
chloramine from tap water. When I was in lexington, I used this for
all water changes with great results.

It turns out that we are moving again (to the Nashville TN area this
summer) and I have decided not to set up my tanks until I drill them
all and set up a central filtering system. I will set this up so that
I can add dechlorinated water to the filter system and have the
overflow disposed of, which will let me do water changes for the whole
system by turning on a tap. If I'm motivated enough, I could even put
the water line on a timer and have it handled automatically. I'd need
to include float valves to prevent

I have more details in my head, but I'm in a meeting right now and
people are asking me questions, so I have to write them later if
anyone is interested.
