a) Allow the water to stand, gently circulate it for 24 hours.
b) Add some peat moss to the bucket/garbage can where you are storing the water. I use a nylon stocking, 1/4 cup in a 5 gallon bucket, or a knee-hi nylon pretty full for a garbage can.

Peat moss is what I would use and it works well, but be aware that it may stain your water a tea color.

I got a couple cubic feet at Lowes mainly for gardening purpose, but you certainly may not need such gigantic amount. Check with garden centers and pet shops for a small package for better price. Brands donít matter, but make sure the ingredient is only peat moss, nothing else added.
