Aquatabs are water purification tablets designed to render water safe to drink. Aqua tabs kill harmful microorganisms that may be present in untreated locally available water sources. They are effervescent (self-dissolving) tablets, with the EPA approved active ingredient NaDCC which is also known as Sodium Dichloroisocyanurate or Troclosene Sodium. To use: add one tablet to 0.75 liters of clarified water, mix for ten minutes and let stand for 30 minutes. Aquatabs will lead to a 99.9999% reduction in bacteria, a 99.99% reduction in viruses and a 99.9% reduction in Cysts (Giardia) within 30 minutes, when used in non turbid water.
Aquatabs have been in use for over 20 years by all of the world’s major aid agencies, NGOs, military, relief and health organizations. Aquatabs are also used for water treatment by international travelers in the water systems of RV / camper vans and for marine usage such as in yachts / boats and for life-long household water treatment with over 13 million daily users globally. The USA EPA registered active ingredient used in Aquatabs is a chlorine donor, but with unique properties that make it safer and more effective than bleach, iodine, chloramines and halazone.
