Katadyn brings you effective water purification with their Micropur MP1 water tablets for disinfection of drinking water. Micropur MP1 Purification Tablets are EPA registered to be effective against Cryptosporidium, Giardia, bacteria, and viruses without using a filter. Micropur tablets are approved by the U.S. Military and the Boy Scouts of America as well.
Micropur MP1 water purifier tablets make contaminated water suitable for drinking for campers, backpackers, hikers, military, international travelers, emergency organizations, and anyone needing to purify water of questionable microbiological quality. Whether from a lake, stream, river, pump or faucet Micropur MP1 tablets work for you.
Micropur MP1 water purification tablets disinfect water using stabilized Chlorine dioxide which is used by many municipal water treatment facilities worldwide. Unlike iodine or active chlorine water disinfectants, Micropur MP1 leaves your water tasting fresh with no unpleasant taste or odor to offend. The chlorine in Micropur MP1 is not the active ingredient, the oxygen is.
Katadyn’s Micropur MP1 Emergency Drinking Water Purification Tablets come in a foil sealed package containing 30 individual tablets. Each of these easy to use, premeasured tablets treat 1 quart / liter of water.
Micropur MP1 is effective against viruses and bacteria in 15 min., however it requires 4 hours for cysts such as Cryptosporidium in adverse conditions such as cold (38°), dirty water. Waiting time can be reduced to 30 minutes in typical lake/steam water.
