Yeah I wrote that. What I should have added is that chemicals in the water could possibly (unproven, but suggested by a few vets I know) illicit a reaction in a weak animal.
A good guideline for watering small animals like small snakes is to either use bottled drinking water or simply use tap water that has been sitting in an open container for 24 hours (chlorine dissipates out of tap water that has been sitting in the open.) If you have been using tap water and all has been well, then no need to change anything. But if you had snakes having health problems, then I would say move to bottled water.
