#6 Potable Aqua Water Tablets
These Water Tablets do exactly what they’re supposed to do.
- One bottle of 50 Potable Aqua Germicidal Water Purification Tablets
- Makes questionable water bacteriologically suitable to drink within 35 minutes
- Emergency water purification tablets effective against Giardia lamblia when used as directed
- Water purification for camping, hiking, international travel and natural disasters
- Portable water treatment tablets used by military and emergency organizations worldwide
In a nutshell, use according to the directions and you’ll be just fine. The bottle contains 50 Water Tablets; you use two per quart of water. In really murky water, I use three.
I love these tablets. They are portable to carry around, and easy to use. 2 tablets to a Liter (32 fl oz) of water, or 1 tablet to 500mL (~16fl oz) of water.
The active ingredient is Tetraglycine Hydroperiodide 16.7% and each tablet contains 6.68% of Titratable Iodine. This is the same stuff that I used in the military, but just to be sure, I opened a bottle and got three quarts of water from the Ohio River. Murky stuff. The first quart was treated with just the Potable Aqua (2-1/2 tablets).
Sent to some friends in Puerto Rico following the hurricane so that they have safe drinking water. I wish they didn’t need it, but they do and this is effective so that they can have water to drink.
