Water Safety Concerns

If I have no other choice than to give rain water to my child because there are no purified or mineral or distilled water that is available, I would not hesitate to give him so. Just so he will not be dehydrated because I believe that proper hydration is vital to bodily functions. Dehydration can affect mental capacities, body temperature, and metabolism. But to ensure safety, I would rather boil the rain water before giving it to my child. Boiling is the best way to cleanse water for immediate consumption. I have learned that water should be boiled at a hard rolling boil for one minute.
