No matter if your chemistry is liquid or powder, you'll still need water. The liquid chemistry is concentrates and will need to be diluted with water before use. Chlorine may or may not be a problem, I don't know. Many municipal water supplies are chlorinated, and the problem is easily overcome. Boiling will drive off the chlorine and most of the dissolved oxygen. Simply leaving the water out in an open container for a day or so will do the same for the chlorine.
