I personally used these for a two month journey through Central Asia that at one point involved two weeks without bottled water (during trekking, traveling). I used these tablets on water I gathered from streams and occasionally from water gathered from wells that looked suspect (i.e., from the plumbing in people's homes). I drank water of various colors (brown, blue and clear), and I never got sick once, which I think proves the authenticity of these tablets (or that I am lucky).

I cannot comment on the taste of the water, because typically the taste of water was the last thing on my mind. If you are thirty, you will drink it. That said, I do not remember the tablets ever causing a strongly undesirable taste (when I used it on water from people's homes). The only time I noticed a pungent taste was when the water was noticeably foul looking, because it was the only source I could get. Ironically, the water I suspected most came from a crap hotel in China that accepted Pakistani rupees (no ATM in town). I am quite sure the taste was not a side-effect of the tablets.

A few notes:

I had a 2-L Camelback (technically Platypus) I stuck two tablets in and a 1.5 L plastic bottle (the disposable kind) that I stuck only one tablet in, since I figured the tablets had a safety factor. I probably filled the bottle 1.3-1.4 L's up.

I waited at least 4 hours before drinking after dropping the tablets in, and would alternate with my Platypus/bottle. In one instance I only waited 2 or 3 hours for the water in my Platypus (which had two tablets), but the water "looked fresher."

The tablets are highly portable. I stuck them in my mini-first aid kit.

They are significantly cheaper than other alternatives, and protect against virtually everything.

Boiling is always best. That said, sometimes boiling isn't an option. This is a good price for 30 tablets, but note that this requires 4 hours to kill cysts (and isn't 100 percent reliable then). So, pair with a straw filter.

My wife and I used these for water purification in the Ouachita Mountains and they worked great. The tablets are a little tough to get out of the individual packaging though and required quite a bit of effort to remove them. I would definitely recommend these for anyone though, we didn't get sick, what more can you ask?

I used these on a long backpacking trip up in the Rocky Mountains. They worked great, I took water directly from several sources including a lake, stream, and pond. Fill up your bottle, drop in a tablet then wait a while and you'll have drinkable water. I'd recommend filtering the sediment out of the water with a scarf or strainer before placing it in your bottle. This method of purification was less involved then others although the wait time was longer. Everyone complains about the taste of Chlorine Dioxide, but honestly I didn't think it was that bad and I am used to normally drinking spring water.

Great Purification technique!

I bought these tablets to have as a back up in S.E. Asia. They work fine, but the water has an after taste. They met the requirment, although bottled water is available practically everywhere. Good as a back up.

The drop down menu offers a 30 pack, but you only receive a 20 pack. I'm sure it's a great product but if your expecting 30, think again.

Chlorine Dioxide is a "go to" water purification tablet for emergencies AND outdoor activities - like hiking. Yes, they take a little longer BUT they are the only purification tablet on the market that is effective against giardia and cryptosporidium - which is why FEMA and other government agencies buy them up so fast the market can't hardly keep up.

As a light weight alternative to packing around water purification pumps for backpacking - you can't beat it. Leaves no after taste and even improves clarity as the sediment seems to fall out of suspension in the water after the tablets are used. I haven't bought chlorine or iodine tablets since these came out on the market. Incase you are wondering "Chlorine Dioxide" does not use actual chlorine to purify the water... it uses a highly active form of oxygen.

The Potable Aqua Chlorine Dioxide tablets were very reasonable in price and arrived earlier than the expected date. On arrival, they were well packaged and arrived undamaged. They are now being used to treat drinking water in Ghana, West Africa to make the water potable. When this product is again needed, I have saved the paperwork and hope to use the same company. Thank you for your prompt and efficient service.
