Will my water filter sanitize the water?

Most home water filters are meant for water that is already microbiologically safe. Using these filters during a precautionary boil-water notice will not guarantee the safety of the water. All filter cartridges must be replaced after the precautionary boil-water notice has been lifted to ensure the filter is not contaminated.
