Micropur MP1 Water Purification Tablets

Katadyn's Micropur MP1 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 MP1 leaves virtually no taste in water. In fact, it can actually improve the taste and odor of treated water.
