Step 4: Fresh Water with Conditioner

Water Conditioner

If you have taken out your ornaments, now is a good time to put them back in. Once you have siphoned out your water, you now need to refill your bucket with the same amount of tap water. Next you will add the water conditioner in the bucket, which will neutralise the chemicals that are in our tap water. The amount of water conditioner needed depends on the amount of water you are changing. The product should have directions, and they may vary depending on the brand. You may need a measuring tool.
