Should I take special precautions with my aquarium or pond?

You should use water treatment products that remove chlorine and chloramines for your aquarium or ponds.   Most pet stores have been selling de-chlorinating agents for years and generally have recommended using them for fresh and saltwater tanks.  See your pet store supplier for more details.
