Just wondering how many people treat their wastewater ( removed tank water )?

I am sure most of us are aware of the amphibian diseases spreading right now, and the measures we can take to ensure we don't spread it within our captive populations, and to wild populations. One of those measures is to disinfect our wastewater with bleach or similar things.

How many of us have begun taking these measures?

I some times use my fish tank wastewater to water my plants because I don't have any amphibians right now.

For the past 8 months I've been using bleach for my waste water.
