Polar Pure Water Disinfectant uses pure crystallized iodine in a unique delivery system to destroy water-borne pathogens including giardia cysts and micro-organisms (viruses) that pass through filters.
Simply add water to your Polar Pure bottle. Does not deteriorate with extremes in temperature. Has an indefinite shelf life. Is safe and fully effective to use as long as you can see iodine crystals at the bottom of the bottle.
One bottle treats up to 2000 quarts of water. Dosage chart is printed on the bottle. Bottle cap is used to measure and decant solution -- no other equipment needed. Small size and light weight makes it convenient for backpacking and travel. Essential for emergency preparedness.



Iodine has a long history as a safe, effective water disinfectant with no ill effects in normal people over long use in community water treatment at up to 20 ppm (parts per million) iodine.

"Tincture of iodine" (alcohol / iodine solution) can be used, but to assure disinfection, milligrams of iodine per drop must be known.

Iodine complexes such as Potable Aqua and Globaline are convenient and effective when fresh, but degrade on air exposure. -- These tablets should be discarded 3 months after opening bottle.

Use of Betadine (povidone/iodine complex) in water treatment has not been tested.

Manufacturer Part#: 340450
