Often health officials issue an advisory only after they become aware of an event or test that has resulted in a potential or actual exposure to waterborne pathogens. That means by the time the boil water advisory is issued, it is possible exposures may have already occurred. Therefore, the best way to protect against instances of boil water advisories is to ensure your drinking water is always protected against contaminants. Most under sink and whole house filtration systems protect against microbiological contaminants. However most refrigerator and pitcher filtration systems do not. LifeStraw Home is one of the only water filter pitchers on the market that protects against bacteria and parasites. Learn more about our LifeStraw Home here.
