Hi folks. I had a quick look through the forums but couldn't find any reference to this product.

It is pretty much what it says it is - a combination of a chlorine based disinfectant (Sodium Dichloro-s-triazinetrione dihydrate) and an unspecified floccing agent. The box contains 30 little sachets, each weighs about 1g and each of which can be used to treat 1 litre of water.

I scooped some water out of the gutters and gave it a try.

It seems to work. According to the instructions you still need to filter the water. Haven't been game to drink it though.

I've clogged filters before with muddy water so thought I might throw a few of these in with the first aid kit, for those times when the only water source is a muddy hole.

My brain keeps reading that as Floor Choc.

The choc part sounds OK, the Floor . . . not so much.

If chocolate falls on the floor, I'm still gonna eat it. Unless it's a pretty grubby floor.

Thanks for taking the time to make the post-pics and info Johnno. Nothing like doing your own testing.

Cheers Lamont. Hoping to do some proper field testing very soon. Just need to find a suitable muddy hole to camp next to.
