Once lifted, flush household pipes, ice makers, water fountains, etc. prior to using for drinking or cooking. Follow these guidelines for flushing:
- Automatic ice makers: Make three batches of ice and discard them.
- Change refrigerator filters.
- Faucets: Run all cold water faucets in your home for one minute at one time with the highest water flow possible to prevent splashing of flooding of the drains.
- Water softeners: Run for one minute at the highest flow rate possible.
