Product Details

Micropur MP1 chlorine dioxide technology is the only water purification tablet or liquid that meets the full EPA Water Purifier Test Standards to control viruses, bacteria and cysts.

Proven Safety - Micropur MP1 has a higher safety level since it kills all types of microorganisms in water, even viruses and cryptosporidium. It has proven performance in both clear and dirty water. 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.
