A family had been away from their home for a few days. They return and are told that there had been a boil order which is now ended. Wouldn't there be unsafe, residual water in the water lines of their home? Why aren't consumers instructed to open each tap for "X" number of minutes before the water is safe? When the problem in the municipal water system is corrected, how can the unsafe water be purged without allowing it to flow out through each tap?
