Sorry for the dumb question.

I should have asked, are there any studies that show better yields,  
or healthier looking plants using filtered water as contrasted to  
city water containing chlorine or other biocides? Or have there been  
any microscopic comparisons of soil watered with city water or  
filtered water?

Maybe someone knows.

Thanks

Marty
