Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stayed healthy Well I didn't get sick from drinking creek or tank water from the Connondale National Park with the aquatabs added so I guess that means they work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy water It felt so good after having these added to my water. I certainly felt the difference and it was much more refreshing! A handy pack to have when travelling!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aquatabs I bought these for my 13 year old son who was going on a Scout tramp for 2 nights and was concerned about the water quality. They gave him peace of mind when he was tramping that the water he was drinking was safe to drink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aquatabs The Aquatabs worked well on our hike. We were hiking through Carnarvan gorge and there were areas where there was untreated water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purified water aplenty! Purchased for Kokoda track hike. Used them at every fill up from the creeks and rivers and never got ill. I also barely noticed a taste from them. An absolute necessity if your water source is a bit sketchy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must to have while tramping Don’t leave home without them. Saves caring quantities of water and we all know how heavy water is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aquatabs These tablets protected 6 of us for our backcountry trip. No one complained about nasty taste or odour. Only trouble was that I couldn't cut them in half cleanly to make up 1/2 a L, but that was no biggy at all. Great price, great peace of mind. Wouldn't travel without them.
