Perfect to use with outdoor activities
Whether camping, canoeing, hunting or engaging in any outdoor activity, it pays to be mindful of your water supply. All Potable Aqua water purification products are lightweight, take up very little space and when used correctly will protect you from a host of bacteria and parasites.
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 water purification products.
Be prepared for emergencies and disasters
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.

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. You also do not have to worry about iodide poisoning with these.
For these reasons, I prefer these tablets to others, even if there is a four hour wait. Keep the iodide tablets for emergencies, and use these tablets for more "regular" use.
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 positive part of this review is that there was no aftertaste as the description promised. That is, if you can get past the pungent reek of chlorine. I do have to give an advisory about the fact that it was my first time using this product. I put a few in my bug-out-bag in case of need for them.
I did enjoy the individual packaging though, this is what compelled me to purchase this product.
