[IP] Running with water OK if not pumping into a set

Yes you can fill the reservoir with water, no you can't put a set in and
pump tap water into the set. Tap water is clean enough to drink but not to
put into your body. boiling water does not suffice to sterilize it since
spores are not subject to destruction by high temperatures. In addition,
tapwater contains nasty chemicals as a result of chlorination and may
contain parasites harmless to drink but nasty if they get into your body
tissues. Sterile water for injection is OK but it will sting more than
saline. If you want to pump I'll send you a vial of saline if you can't get
one., Spot
