I think there are some sort of sanitizing tabelets you can put into the deck fill that sterilizes the water once it is in the tanks. There is also a recipe for adding bleach but I'm not sure how much you need to add to chlorinate it at the correct concentration (it's something like 1tsp/5 gallons but not sure). Can't think of another way to pre-filter the bugs unless you bought a household reverse osmosis filter and used it to slowly fill your tank. You would have to be in a slip with pressure water at the dock to do this; letting the "waste" water go overboard.
