What is going on?

I ordered some aquatabs for sailing in the Caribbean post hurricane Irma & Maria. Told they did not have enough product to fulfil my order (1 tub). Then told instead that they didn't ship to USA. They took my money though. I had to pay a bank transfer fee for the transaction and another one when they refunded. They did not refund the additional fees. So, it cost me.....to get nothing. They offered a $10 voucher if I bought again. You must be joking!

Aquatabs Canada

Our sincere apologies for your experience. The initial notification about the item being out of stock was incorrect. We cannot however ship this item to the US because it is not yet registered with the US EPA. We've added additional notifications on the product page noting this to help future US customers. We do apologize that you incurred a small fee from your bank but as previously explained, have no method of refunding anything further than the original charge to your credit card. We do apologize for the inconvenience and will strive to offer clearer communications moving forward. Warm regards, Andrew Moorey, Co-Founder

Great product!

I dissolved two tablets in one litre of water to create a 10000 ppm solution. The surprising this was that there was not a bit of precipitate. it will be fun to explore the application of these tablets !

Amazing product, even better service

Great product. Very knowledgeable and approachable when I needed to ask questions. I've been buying the Elua Aquatabs Water Purification tablets for the past 2 years, they've been an excellent source to keep the stationary water in our cistern in Mêxico, clean, purified, odorless and bug free. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Very fast service too. Ordered it on Saturday, and had it at my doorsteps by the following Wednesday. You can't go wrong with Aquatabs.
