It's a liability thing. Unless they market their systems as removing pathogens they would never recommend you use it right now. A functional RO membrane will remove pathogens. The only concern would be damaged membranes or seals. But if your TDS is reading normal then your membrane is probably fine. You'd probably want to replace the filters once the boil notice is lifted just to be safe.

My OCD is telling me ‘No’. With livestock that took a hit the last thing I want to rule out is iffy RODI.
