    Should not grow anything if chlorinated, sealed and not exposed to sunlight.

    I bought one of those many years ago, have not used yet. Only thing I did not think of until I read a review, is if used in winter,it can then end up freezing if not kept warm.

    I keep a couple of cases of bottled water on hand, but I live on a well and have 3 creeks on my property. Plus, my in ground pool has 30k gallons of chlorine water.
