Exclamation Will chlorinated water hurt?

I feel so stupid
A couple days ago our filtered water ran out, so we had to buy those jugs of it. For Winks baths my mom told me to use the water from the shower head because it was filtered. Well, I used the water from the faucet because I thought that thats what she meant, and I found out today that it isnt filtered right after I finished Winks bath. He always drinks a bunch during his baths and Im really worried that the chlorine in it hurt him! Will he be OK? It was only for the last couple days. I would NEVER give him clorinated water on purpose.... Im really worried now. Hes acting normal, but still...
And its not heavily chlorinated or anything, just tap water.

Tap water is fine. No problems, it only matters with fish, and amphibians

I use water strait from the tap for all the reptiles and only worry about the water for fish and ampibians.

Yup, he'll be fine. The reason why it's bad for fish is because, well, they're living in it! It's going right through their gills. And with amphibians, they absorb water through their skin. But for reptiles, it's fine.
