I was going to use the water from the fridge, same water that I drink
Just had a look where your from,maybe you reg on your water is better.i had the same question when keeping fish,fish suffer from drinking problems.from the main or tank.?ok I used stuff to remove chlorine,ammonia,choramines,when doing water changes.i did take from the main and the tank,Now you have made a point I'm going to have a look at bottled table water.not sold as mineral water.Very good point thanks for your post.
 
Are tarantulas sensitive to chlorine and fluoride? I'm pretty sure that our city does treat the water with these chemicals. If so I will have to go buy bottled water

A lot of people use bottled water. Some like myself use boiled (obviously cooled down afterwards!) tap water. I'm in the UK. Water is fluorinated here. I only do this because I was told straight tap water is bad. Does anyone know why this is so? As I haven't heard any actual stories of t's being harmed from drinking tap water. It's all just been keepers saying that they don't give it as they don't like to take a chance. I'd really like to hear what the evidence actually is.

In fact, I used straight tap water for a while myself until I realised that a lot of keepers don't.

I always use tap water...I also live in Oregon with some of the best water around. They chlorinate it but chlorine dissipates rapidly. Let it sit over night and it's gone. It really matters what your water is treated with in your area.
