Product description Brand name and product description

P&GTM Purifier of Water (formerly known as PUR) is a single packet of powder which contains both coagulants and chlorine to disinfect and dramatically reduce the turbidity of 10 liters of water. When mixed with water, first the coagulant allows suspended particles to join together and settle at the bottom of the container which can be easily filtered out by filtering the water through a cloth. Then, timed chlorine release kills remaining pathogens. The whole process takes 30 minutes and the treated water contains residual free chlorine to protect against recontamination.
