The next step is to boil it long enough to ensure that the water will be safe. Drinking water without doing so can get you ill. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it’s better to use bottled water or boil tap water. They also note that we shouldn’t swallow any water coming from the shower. 

Aside from not drinking shower water, the organization also advises against using tap water for wetting your toothbrush and rinsing your mouth after brushing your teeth. CDC also says to boil filtered tap water. To kill pathogens, it needs to reach at least 71 degrees Celsius. 

After boiling, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends adding a pinch of salt per liter of water that you will be boiling to improve its taste.
