One should never, ever use tap water with reptiles, especially since they drink from their water and gain humidity from water. Heavy metals, chemicals, and lots of chlorine and chloramines are present in tap water. If you ONLY have tap water in an emergency you can use a de-chlorinator such as Repti-Safe, which will remove chlorine and chloramines as well as some of the chemicals, however it can not remove heavy metals and many others toxins in tap water, which is why distilled water, filtered water (obviously the better the filter the better the water), bottled water, or purified water.
Finally, to aid in shedding and to increase humidity for your reptile while adding a wonderful effect use a reptile fogger, specifically the Blue Spotted Deep Jungle Reptile Fogger which works great for our reptile rescue: Deep Jungle Fogger, Advanced Humidifying Fogger For Reptiles & Amphibians In Terrariums & Aquariums! Provides Essential Moisture & humidity For The Well-being Of Your Pet Reptile and Amphibians! but any fogger increases humidity in a more effective way than most of the misters on the market!)
In Conclusion, ReptiSafe is a highly recommended product to keep on hand in case you ever need to use tap water in a pinch, however, as mentioned above, ideally one should use purified water of some type for the ideal health of your reptile.
The only downside was the packaging. Like others here, I received the bottle wet in the plastic bag, which eroded part of the label. I rinced it off and everything was okay. There is no seal on the bottles, so if the lid comes loose, the solution will leak into the bag. For this reason, I would purchase it in person if I was able.
We've noticed several benefits of using ReptiSafe.
1 - We use filters that produce waterfalls, and the splashes can leave hard water spots on the sides of the tank. The sides of the tanks used to get so full of water marks we couldn't see our turtles unless we looked over the top of the tank. We've found that there aren't as many stains since we started using this almost a year ago.
2 - Water marks can be very hard to scrub off! It isn't safe to use cleaning chemicals on the inside of the tank, so we add a squirt of this to a wet sponge, and those stains come off very easily.
3 - The water stays clear longer. We used to change half the water every week, and we still had to dismantle the tanks every 2 weeks to scrub the slime off the basking platform steps and the rocks. Often, the water would turn greenish and cloudy between cleanings. Now we change half the water once a week, and it's rare that we have to do anything more than replace the filter cartridges.
4 - It's great for the turtles because they no longer have to be removed from their homes for hours at a time while we clean. They used to spend hours "remodeling" after we cleaned the tanks, but now their rocks stay where they want them. There's no upheaval or disorientation, so the boys are much more relaxed. Happier turtles = happier humans!
There is not a seal on the product. I think there should be, for several reasons. Yes, it's "just for a turtle" but I still don't like the idea of someone putting something in there that shouldn't be.
Item will also leak if bottle is tipped, even if closed. Be careful of that.
All of that said, the product works well and I feel good about using this brand for my turtle.
