Lightweight, simple and affordable, Katadyn Micropur Forte water disinfection tablets are popular for hikers and travellers worldwide.
Safe amounts of chlorine eliminate bacteria and viruses in clear water whilst silver ions work to conserve the water for up to 6 months.
Used in combination with a filter for turbid water, Micropur Forte tablets take 10 minutes to dissolve, a further 20 minutes to kill viruses and bacteria, and 120 minutes to effectively eliminate amoebas and giardia.
I'd buy this frm Snowys
These tablets are easy to use. I use them with the Ultralight Java Drip (also bought from Snowys!) to get rid of bugs and sticks and stuff in the water before treating. I think the trick is to leave the lid off once treated to allow the chlorine taste and smell to dissipate. Taste less offensive than scheme water (in Perth at least!)
Tablets work well, on balance I am more than happy to put up with the chlorine taste.
I used these tablets during a recent 3 week trek in remote part of Nepal. The rest of my group were using aqua tabs. Almost everyone else suffered with tummy issues. I did not have any such issues. One of the draw backs of these tablets is they leave a rather strong chlorine after taste. I found filtering the water after purification helped with this. From a performance point of view they worked very, very well.
Hi, i note the dosage is 1 tab per 1L if water. Would it matter much if you dissolved 1 tab in a 700mL bottle of water, if thats the size you’re using? Cheers
That won't be a worry at all. It'll just mean you go through your packet of Katadyn Micropur Forte Tablets quicker than if you were using one per litre.
