Water Purification Tablets

Using water purification tablets or solution to ensure you have safe drinkable water has become “the norm” for camping, backpacking, or even traveling.  You just have to add one or two water purification tablets (or the appropriate amount of water disinfectant solution) to your quart of water, set the water aside until the appropriate amount of “purifying” time has passed,  and then the water is ready to drink.

The pluses of using water purification tablets or solutions are that they are compact, light, destroy water-borne pathogens that might get through a water filter, and you don’t have to start a fire.  The biggest downside is that you have to be patient and wait for the tablet or solution to do its job.

Recommended below are several of the most used water purification tablets/crystals to help you in making your buying decision.


Potable Aqua Water Treatment Tablets

This bottle of iodine tablets can treat up to 25 quarts of water.  Just add two tablets to a quart of water and let it stand for 20-30 minutes.  The Amazon customer satisfaction rating is 4.6 out of 5 stars.  Click here for more information on Potable Aqua Water Treatment tablets.




Potable Aqua Plus

Highly Recommended: In addition to the Potable Aqua Water Treatment Tablets mentioned above, a bottle of 50 taste and discoloration neutralizer tablets is provided.  After using the Potable Aqua tablets to purify the water (as described above), you add 1 or 2 neutralizer tablets to the purified water and wait 3-5 minutes for the neutralizer tablets to reduce both the iodine taste and discoloration produced by the initial purification.  Click here for information on Potable Aqua Plus.
