How Do Water Purification Tablets Work?

Aquatabs use a measured dose of sodium dichloroisocyanurate, also known as NaDCC. When they are dropped into water over 40 degrees Fahrenheit, they release hypochlorous acid, which is known as a safe and effective water disinfectant. 

When used in non-turbid, or clear, freshwater, Aquatabs result in a reduction of 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of viruses, and 99.99% of parasites such as Giardia cysts. The microorganisms that Aquatabs eliminates could otherwise lead to diarrhea, cholera, typhoid, dysentery, and other diseases. Aquatabs can also kill many viruses that aren’t removed through filtration.

This eliminates the need to boil water before drinking it. In fact, using Aquatabs can be better than boiling water because the chlorine that has been released will remain in the water and prevent contamination for three to five days, depending on how it is stored. Water that has been boiled can be re-contaminated anytime after it cools back to a normal temperature.

Where Are Water Purifying Tablets Used?

The convenience, portability, affordability, and speed of Aquatabs water purifying tablets allow them to be used in a wide range of situations. 

Aquatabs are popular with hikers, backpackers, and campers since they eliminate the need to carry additional equipment or extra water that can weigh them down. They are also used in jerrycans, buckets, and freshwater tanks on boats. Many people like to take Aquatabs with them on international trips to make sure they have reliable drinking water.

But Aquatabs can also be essential for use at home. If a water main bursts and an order to boil water goes out, a natural disaster causes the water supply to be contaminated, or a cyberattack on local infrastructure occurs, Aquatabs can ensure you have safe drinking water. 

Water purifying tablets can also be used when well water is potentially contaminated, and some farmers use Aquatabs to ensure their livestock have access to clean drinking water.
