De-chlorinate pond water?

Hello all, I've just started my first pond in my garden, using an old butler sink. I'm going shopping for plants this weekend (I'm very excited!) but I've only been able to collect about half a sink-full of rain water so far.

I read online that you can use tap water as long as you use de-chlorinating tablets in it first to remove the extra chemicals. Would that work to help top up my pond?
