User Review: Katadyn Micropur MP1 Purification Tablets
Price Paid: $13
I used them this weekend and there is noticeable chlorine like taste. I'm very glad I also brought my pump. Here is the quick and dirty:
Use one tablet per liter of water. Allow 4 hours to dissolve and treat the water; pretty simple.
The idea was rather than have to pump out 3 liters of water first thing in the morning. I would treat them overnight and be ready to go when I woke up.
My thoughts: The chlorine flavor is subtle enough that it can be overlooked and I would far prefer it to Iodine. In a large group with other that don’t have means to purify their water it could be helpful, but there is no way I will ever replace my pump with these tablets. I will however, be sure to keep them in my first aid/emergency/damn I f’d up kit.
