    Aquatabs should be used with clear water. If the water to be treated is murky/turbid, then it should be firstly filtered through a cloth until clear. If the water to be treated is being consumed from a known source (such as with a household water supply), then the low-risk dosing, as shown above, can be used. In all other situations, then the high-risk dosing should be used.

    Remove the tablet from the packaging and add to the water. Ensure that the tablet is dispersed (by briefly shaking the vessel or mixing). Wait 30 minutes for the disinfection to work and then the water is safe to drink. Do not swallow the tablet.
