Aquatabs are effervescent tablets that kill micro-organisms in water to prevent cholera, typhoid, dysentery and other water-borne diseases. Aquatabs are available in a range of tablet sizes. Each tablet size is formulated to treat a specific volume of water – ranging from 1Lt to 2,500 Lts. Aquatabs are used both in emergency situations and also for continuous use in households that do not have access to safe drinking water. Many water sources throughout the world, even after filtration, remain contaminated and require some form of disinfection. Aquatabs enable areas without access to water disinfection systems to benefit from the advantages of chlorination without any infrastructure requirements in a speedy and cost-effective manner. Aquatabs are simple to use, easily transported, cost-effective and affordable to low-income groups.
