5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for the wilderness 17 Aug 2011
By Dave M TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I have just returned from a trekking holiday in Greenland and found these tablets to be invaluable.

I know that some people say that the water in the streams and lakes is completedly safe to drink, however the sheep dropping and green slime in some places made me think otherwise...

The important thing is that, when doing strenous walking, to drink enough. For a 10 hour day, carrying enough water isn't really an option, so it is necessary to pick up water en route. These solved that problem.

I do agree that there is taste of "swimming pool", however this is the lesser of two evils, the other being the effects of dodgy water (I'll leave that to your imagination).

In my opinion, essentail for being out where the quality of water cannot be guaranteed.

One point of note, and I'm not sure if this is true of not. I have been told that UV light, i.e. sunlight, can stop these working. I was taught that, if you use these, you must use either an opaque bottle or put your water bottle inside your rucksack; a transparent bottle in a net pocket is a no-no. As I say, I have been taught this, but I have no way of knowing if it is correct, but just to be on the safe side, I keep my bottle inside my pack until the waiting time is over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great wee life savers 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
There's other reviews on here that hit the nail on the head.

I'm just going to add my experience with them.

I bought these in anticipation of going for a long weekend camping so I could carry little water.

The thing I noticed was how much the treated water tasted of chlorine; in the kind of situations these should be used in, that's neither here nor there.

It's also worth noting that it's best to place the tablet in 2 litres of untreated water (as instructed) leave the lid of the bottle loose and give it a shake for 2-3 minutes prior to letting stand for 30 minutes that helped a little with the taste.

Also, I made the mistake of filling my CamelBak with the untreated water and then adding the tablet. Don't do that. It tastes awful and I can't imagine it being very good/healthy for you or your water bladder.

As for the five stars, I've used them from all throughout the weekend and my insides are very much still inside of me.
The chlorine taste is a trivial thing to deal with. If you NEED to use these tablets then you're probably very desperate for clean water - the faint taste of chlorine isn't going to stop you.

This was given to a niece of mine as a gift to take with her on a trek in Peru. She said they were very helpful with the water issues and they worked extremely well.

I took these tablets camping since we would mainly be drinking burn water. Tablets are tiny so take up very little room in a bag. They only leave a very faint tast of chlorine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value and very usrful item. 31 Jan 2014

These tablets are great value, cheaper than I've previously seen them for. I live in Africa so I use these regularly. They have a horrid chlorine taste, but by adding the juice of one lime or an effervescent vitamin the taste soon disappear.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must 14 Sep 2013
By Biff
Verified Purchase
I bought these for my camping trips. I do take water from rivers but always boil it before drinking. Thought these would come in handy. Drop one into a litre of water and wait 10 minutes or so for the tablet to dissolve. The water will be safe to drink but tastes like swimming pool water, chlorine. Simply adding a powdered sport drink makes it more pleasant to drink. I no longer have to keep boiling water to drink. I never go camping without them.

They taste a bit like chlorine but they make suspect water safe to drink after 30 or so minutes. Not much more to say other than they work and do the job.

As described, hopefully never use them :-) But if I might do, as they say, its better to be safe than sorry. Have the potential to save your life, and not drink unpurified water.
