Katadyn's Micropur Forte water treatment tablets are a handy and easy method of treating water when you're in the middle of no where. These tablets deal with Bacteria, Viruses and Giardia. Coupled with a filter you'll have a formiddable water treating system. They're super lightweight too so it's always worth carrying some in your pack.

Katadyn says

The World Health Organisation (WHO) attributes 80% of all travel diseases to drinking water. It is advisable to always use Micropur as a precaution.

Micropur can be used by itself with clear water, or in combination with a filter in turbid water. Micropur Forte eliminates bacteria and viruses, which can occur in hotel tap water and public fountains. Reaction time: 30 minutes.

How and when Micropur Forte is used:

Contaminated water is the most frequest cause of travel sickness. Infectious diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (diarrhoea, cholera, typhoid fever, giardiasis, amebiasis etc..), of the liver (hepatitis A) etc.. are transmitted by microorganisms. These are present anywhere - even in apparently clean, clear and odourless water! Micropur Forte contains a combination of stabilised chlorine and silver ions. In the right concentration chlorine will eliminate quickly and efficiently bacteria, viruses and certain protozoa. At the same time the silver ions will protect the water from recontamination for 6 months.

Limitations: Use only in clear water. Turbid water needs to be filtered first with a portable filter system.

Use: Add one tablet of Micropur Forte to 1 litre of water, leave for 30 minutes before consumption. The effectiveness of Micropur Forte is dependent on water quality and temperature.

Our Verdict

There's pretty good water in most of the places I go, so I don't need to carry a filter - so long as there are no particulates in the water a tablet does the job. I've never found an aftertaste in the water treated with Katadyn Micropur.
