Hey all!

First time brewer, first time poster.

I get the water for my home from a spring. The water is filtered and run through a UV system which removes 99.9% of bacteria. Do you think I need to boil my top off water or the water I use to rinse sanitized equipment? Could I get away with just sanitizing the nozzle of the faucet? Thanks for the help!

If it comes out of your faucet 99.9% sterile, then you're fine. But if it is sterilized, then is piped through your house to the faucet, i would boil it first.

It's sterilized upon entering the home, but it does travel through copper pipes before it gets to the faucet. Thanks for the advice!
