Lifesaver!!

I have purchased Aquatabs from you in the past, first time was for my journey to Africa to climb Kilimanjaro. There were 6 of us on that trip, & I brought enough Aquatabs for everyone to have 6 liters of water a day. The only person on that trip that got sick was a gentleman who had his own water purification system and I understand that he suffered from an intestinal illness that lasted several months after we got home. The rest of us were fine. Convinced me! Just wanted to let you know that I have taken a few trips lately.

Not yet used...

... but am very confident they will perform more than adequately. Have heard first hand from people who have used this exact product (and some others who have used other brands) and all gave positive comments.
