Aquamira is stabilized chlorine dioxide and contains no active chlorine or iodine. Chlorine dioxide is an extremely effective and safe water treatment currently used by hundreds of municipal water treatment plants world-wide. Aquamira's unique formula works quickly and efficiently by releasing oxygen in a highly active form to kill bacteria, viruses, and protozoa without unpleasant taste or odor! Aquamira is the first stabilized chlorine dioxide water treatment kit of its kind available in a consumer package.

What is Aquamira? Aquamira is a two part system, Part A, chlorine dioxide, 1 oz. (30ml) (2% stabilized chlorine dioxide), and Part B, phosphoric acid, 1 oz. (30ml) (5% food-grade solution).

Is there chlorine in Aquamira? No, there is no active chlorine in chlorine dioxide. Although chlorine dioxide has the word chlorine in its name, the two forms of chlorine have completely different chemical structures. The oxygen is the active ingredient.

How safe is Aquamira? Water treated as directed with Aquamira is safe to drink on a regular basis.  It will work in water temperatures from 32°F to 100°F.
Aquamira Water Treatment offers a safe and highly effective way to treat drinking water using stabilized chlorine dioxide as a germicidal agent. This well-established disinfectant is iodine and chlorine free. This unique formula works by releasing nascent oxygen, a highly active form of oxygen, which is a strong oxidant and a powerful germicidal agent. It does not discolor water, nor does it give water an unpleasant taste. The 1 oz. kit is compact enough to fit in a shirt pocket, can treat up to 30 gallons of water, and has a four-year shelf life.

Mcnett Aquamira Water Treatment Reviews:


cheap peace of mind

I use these treatment drops with a [2L Platypus > Aquamira Frontier Pro Filter > 2L Platypus] gravity filter setup. I find the standard packaging to be a bit much for anything less than a week of backpacking so I purchased the suggested AntiGravityGear Lightwater Kit (includes a mixing dropper!) which allows me to reduce the amount of treatment drops I bring along.

I've used these treatment drops for several summers now with zero problems. Good stuff, but don't pre-mix.

I only listed the cons to balance out the pros. Combining the two parts into the provided mixing cap and waiting 5 minutes is rarely ever a problem and I always welcome the break, especially when I'm near a nice creek or river.

Indispensible product read my comments!

Aqua Mira prevents biofilm from growing in water bottles, bags and bite valve lines! This is very important. If not used, this microscopic slime can grow in there and make you sick. It has happened to me. It takes 5 to 10 days if it's going to happen. Using Aqua Mira, and being sure to slosh the water immediately after mixing in the product onto all interior surfaces, and out lines and bite valves will sanitize in the field. Not necessary every fill, but regularly. Believe it!

Great little purification kit

I used this water purification kit with my son on a recent Boundary Waters canoe trip. It was easy to use and worked great. Unlike iodine, there was no odd taste to the water. In fact the water tasted really good!!! We are planning another canoe trip for next year and this is now our "go to" way to purify our drinking water in the back country. No more iodine for us.

A must have.

I use Aquamira on backpacking trips along with the Sawyer Squeeze. I also keep some in my bug out bag and a smaller bag that stays in my truck. Used to use only a filter, but even in the purest parts of the cascade mountains, I was struck with giardia. Now, when it comes to exploring, traveling, or most importantly, survival... Aquamira's on the top of my list.

Easy and effective

Used this on wilderness canoe trip for a couple weeks. Lots of water around and most of it glacier fed, so it was cloudy and full of silt. Drops worked well and faster than pumping through a filter. Different water sources had different tastes, some pretty unpleasant, but was hesitant to add flavoring since that could compromise the treatment. Not a big problem.

Aquamira is great water treatment

I have led about 20 mission teams to the Miskito coast and Bosowas rainforest. We have used Aquamira for most of those teams. When used properly I believe it treats water completely so that it is safe to drink. When we do we have never had anyone get sick due to the water, that we know of.

Essential Survival Equipment

Safe drinking water anywhere. Easy to read and understand directions included with product. Works faster than dissolving tablets. Treated water does not have any unpleasant taste or after taste. Aquamira-Water Treatment drops have a strong track record and work as described. Used recently during a boil water advisory with excellent results.

I haven't gotten sick yet.

I usually take the time in the evening to filter enough water for the next day and then let the drops work overnight. I have had good experiences and have come to trust Aquamira tablets and drops. For me, the drops are more convenient than the tablets.

Great as advertised

Perfect for backpacking. I never have to worry about a water purification gear malfunction. I didn't do a "before" test, but the water tasted great after purification so I believe the manufacturer's claim that this product improves the taste.

Good Stuff

I carry 2 water bottles. I stop to rest & drink every half hour. When one bottle gets low I fill the other. Light & easy
