I am looking for the best or a recommendation for hose filter for removing chlorine. I found a few on line but reviews led me to believe they did not work. I live in South Carolina with the temperature almost year round being hot to warm I will need to top off pond weekly.

Thanks for any help

I have also heard that the hose end filters don't do much - and if they do, they aren't terribly reliable. How much water do you think you'll need to add weekly?

Well for what it is worth...... I have a 3000 gallon pond.... I change out about 12” of my pond each week during the spring/summer/fall.... during the winter I only use it keep the water level. They are advertised to being good for 3000 gallons.... I have no doubt I have exceeded that many times..... I generally buy three a year and I have never had any problems with chlorine in water changes. They are a bit pricey but I like the convenience of it..... might not be for everyone but it works for me

Seachem makes a product called "Safe". It's a concentrated powder that "removes chlorine, chloramine and detoxifies ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. It is non-acidic and will not impact pH" I use it for my tanks in the house and for my pond. I bought the 2.2lb bottle and it has lasted a couple of years and I still have a bunch left. I just sprinkle it in my return flow when adding water. It's great stuff. It only requires a 1/4 tsp. to treat 300 gallons. I don't have any connections to the company, but I will always promote a product that does what it says, and does it for the right price.

Get one of the 4x4 totes, cut off the top and fill with you water. In a week the chlorine should be gone ,test,then add to the pond. If a week does not remove the chlorine just add a small air pump.
Fill and repeat.
