Health risks with non-potable water!

 I read recently on the Diva Cup website that you can not wash or rinse your cup with non-potable water.  They say this can lead to serious infections and health problems, and provide a faulty link for more information.  I'm living in a developing country, and have been washing with non-potable water, and just realized this is a problem.  

Does anyone have any more info on this?   Anyone else in this situation and have tips for washing?
