5.0 out of 5 stars Great wee life savers, 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Water Purification Tablets (Misc.)
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.
