Potable Aqua® Water Purification Tablets
Potable Aqua®. Water Purification Tablets
Potable Aqua® Drinking Water Germicidal Tablets are intended for emergency disinfection of drinking water. When used as directed, they make most water bacteriologically suitable for drinking. Used worldwide by campers, hikers, militaries, emergency organizations and anyone needing to drink water of questionable bacteriological quality. Potable Aqua® is for use only when drinking water is suspected or known to be bacteriologically substandard.
Not to be used on a continuous basis. For short term or limited emergency use only.
Whether camping, canoeing, hunting, or engaging in any sort of outdoor activity, it pays to be mindful of your water supply. A bottle of Potable Aqua® tablets takes up very little space, weigh less than a pound, and when used correctly will protect you from a host of parasites, viruses and bacteria.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that between 30% and 70% of international travelers suffer some form of Traveler's Diarrhea (TD), calling TD "the most predictable travel-related illness."
The most common causes of water-borne TD are bacteria, such as E. coli, cholera and salmonella, which are reduced or eliminated by Potable Aqua® Drinking Water Germicidal Tablets.
Be conscious of where you are. If you are traveling to a place where indoor plumbing is not widely available, or where monsoons, floods or inadequate water treatment may leave water supplies exposed to pathogens, proceed with caution.
Potable Aqua® Drinking Water Germicidal Tablets, when used correctly, can render water safe for drinking.
Disaster Relief and Emergency Preparedness
As hurricanes and tsunamis tragically demonstrate, the first things to get knocked out by natural disasters are the electrical grid and the water supply.
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) an adult needs a minimum of a half-gallon of water per day just for drinking. So a family of four would require roughly two gallons per day of purified water.
When water is scarce, water purification tablets like Potable Aqua® are crucial for an emergency preparedness kit.
