you don't want to boil the water because that will take out other nutrients needed for a thriveing tank
also a start out chemical made by a company called jungle is START RIGHT that will take out the chlorine the same company also makes a CORRECT PH that will level out your pH perfect
you can get those chemicals through either your local walmart or an online company called drfosterandsmiths.com

Most cities don't use chlorine anymore, they use chloramine. It's made by reacting chlorine and ammonia. It won't boil off--and boiling the water WOULD drive off the oxygen the fish will breathe. The dechlorinator I use is made by Tetra.
