Katadyn's Micropur Forte Chlorine Dioxide tablets are an easy-to-use water purification tablet that is safer than iodine or chlorine. In fact, Micropur MP1 is the only tablet or liquid currently registered by the EPA that controls Cryptosporidium, a waterborne cyst. It is an excellent choice to purify water from lakes, rivers, streams and for international travel.
- Proven safety – Micropur MP1 has a higher safety level since it kills all types of microorganisms in water - even viruses and Cryptosporidium. No other water disinfectant system is currently registered to meet EPA standards as a water purification system. Also, unlike chlorine, Micropur does not leave chemical by-products (like trihalomethanes - TTHM's) in your water.
- Easy to use – Each pre-measured tablet treats 1 liter of water (no mixing or measuring). When diluted in water, Micropur MP1 tablets release chlorine dioxide, the same substance used in municipal drinking water plants worldwide to disinfect drinking water.
- Taste – Micropur leaves virtually no taste in water. In fact, it can actually improve the taste and odour of treated water.
The World Health Organization (WHO) attributes 80% of all travel diseases to contaminated drinking water. Don’t let contaminated drinking water spoil your trip. Avoid tap water and ice cubes anytime the water quality is uncertain – even bottled water can be questionable, when available. According to WHO, almost half of all travellers suffer from some form of diarrhoea while travelling.
