Real Customer Reviews
- Water Purification
Likes: Helpful and compact - exactly what we needed to backpack Patagonia
- Better than the iodine...if you can plan
Likes: No taste, no smell, no yellow color left behind in my Platypus. Will use these again.
Dislikes: You need to wait 4 hours for the product to work effectively. As long as you plan appropriately, this is OK.
- Light weight
Likes: I tuck these in my emergency supplies, and forget about it. Safe water when needed!
Dislikes: none really
Likes: Tiny, individually wrapped with instructions on each one. Hardly weighs anything. Only gave 4 stars because we havent had to use them yet--I carry them on all trips as backup to our pump filter.
Likes: Not sure yet of taste.... Giving a review before using.
Dislikes: Just found out it takes FOUR HOURS!!!! Most I've seen from friends are a half hour. By the time 4 hours goes by I could hike to a town for a water source!!!! Would have liked to have known this before purchasing. Using as a back-up anyway.
Likes: small individually wrapped tablets, lightweight
Likes: Small LightWeight
Likes: convenient to use
Likes: small and light option for backpacking
Dislikes: time required - 4 hours for full treatment. some sites indicate 30 mins for virus/bacteria treatment
Likes: As far as I can tell they work.
I didn't get sick so I'll just have to assume they worked.
I mainly carry them as a backup though and have only used them twice.
