Both are easily removable with a good de-chlorinator, of which I feel safe in saying that there are more brands than soft drinks and are available in all LPS or LFS stores...

I don't really know of any unit that is worth purchasing for this reason, honestly you might as well use de-chlorinator.

Chlorine will evaporate out of water by itself in a day. Chloramines won't, and will result in ammonia if a bad de-chlorinator is used (http://www.thetropicaltank.CO2.uk/rev-cond.htm).

Use Prime. It takes out both.
