Would You Use Harsh Water Tablets If There Were a Safer Alternative?
Sodium Dichloroisocyanurate, a component of some water purification tablets, is the same substance used for disinfecting swimming pools. While in water tablet form it is diluted, warnings include ‘irritating to eyes and respiratory system’ ‘harmful’ ‘burns’ ‘sore throats’ ‘contact with acids liberates toxic gas’ etcetera. While its warning ‘harmful to aquatic organisms, it is a key compound used in water tablets. While there are instances when it or a similar compound simply must be used, why would you if you didn’t have to?
On most occasions when you’re traveling, your need is to have safe drinking water. There is a need to ensure that the water you drink is pure.
