There are several bugs that are not killed by chlorination, but again, I don't consider them a viable threat if filling from a municipal source. Streams, cisterns, ponds, long stagnated sources, are a different story.

No wrong answer here though. Everyone should do what they are comfortable with.
It's my happy pill
