Less weight than a filter, and won't plug up.


  • Small
  • Weight
  • Effective


  • A short wait

I took these along on a backcountry elk hunt in 2010 as a backup to a filter water bottle. I am sure glad I did. the filter bottle was a disappointment.

The two-part tablets delivered good tasting water with no ill effects. I would fill my Camelbak and water bottles from a small creek, place in the appropriate number of tablets, and wait about 1/2 an hour or more then put the neutralizer tablet in. The taste of the water was good, and after 7-days had no ill effects from the water.

I am planning another trip this year and bought another set yesterday. I don't take the filter bottle anymore.

Here's what other sites are saying:

A revolutionary two stage process that makes water bacteriologically safe to drink and taste good. After treating water with Potable Aqua, simply drop 1-2 tablets of the neutralizer into the water and wait 3-5 minutes for clear, great tasting water. It greatly reduces the iodine taste and the discoloration caused by the iodine. Packaged in a 50 count bottle along with a 50 count bottle of Potable Aqua on a blister card. REMINDER: Use Potable Aqua first to make the water safe to drink. The neutralizer will not eliminate harmful bacteria or viruses.
