    Aquatabs is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    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.

    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 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.
