PURINIZE® is a 100% natural, mineral-based water purifier that disinfects and clarifies questionable water from any freshwater source without chemical disinfectants, making it safe to drink and use. Its proprietary formulation of flocculating and coagulating mineral salts eliminates/reduces 200+ contaminants including pathogens (bacteria, viruses, and protozoa) as well as heavy metals, industrial and agricultural chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and more.
PURINIZE® works through the process of Coagulation-Flocculation (CF). It contains a natural combination of coagulating and flocculating mineral salts that disinfect and clarifies raw water. CF removes suspended pollutants, in the form of microscopic particles or gross organic matter, by trapping them and clumping them together to form particulates. These entrapped particulates eventually settle and can be easily removed from the purified water by straining through a regular filter, coffee filter, or fine cloth.
PURINIZE® is the only water treatment product that naturally disinfects and clarifies water through the process of CF without chemical disinfectants or other synthetic ingredients. See the CDC's Water Disinfection for Travelers Guide for more information about CF (listed under Filtration and Clarification).
NOTE: It can take anywhere from 1-48 hours to notice any sediment in your purified water (colder water = slower process, hotter water = faster process). However, this does not mean your water isn't safe to drink. PURINIZE® starts working as soon as it's added to water and requires only a 60 minute wait time.
PURINIZE® is effective against a broad range (over 200 in total) of contaminants commonly found in outdoor and drinking water sources including biological contaminants like bacteria, viruses, and protozoan cysts, and toxic contaminants like agricultural and industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), disinfectants, and disinfection byproducts.
Tests were completed by a certified, independent laboratory according to EPA & NSF/ANSI standards (when applicable). View test reports here.

NOTE: UV light may not readily activate if water (e.g. snow melt) doesn't contain enough minerals (electrolytes). It's suggested to add salt or an electrolyte beverage to the water to help activate it, and that's what PURINIZE® is (complex mineral salts).
Pre-treating your water with PURINIZE® gives you the maximum of protection against toxic contaminants. Most portable water filters efficiently remove biological contaminants. However, outdoor and drinking water sources often contain toxic contaminants like chemicals from agricultural and industrial practices, pharmaceutical drugs, heavy metals, and more. PURINIZE® neutralizes these contaminants, so they're easily filterable. By pre-treating your water with PURINIZE®, these contaminants can no longer pass through your filter.
Just add the suggested amount to your water and shake well to distribute evenly. Wait at least 60 minutes, filter, and drink.
NOTE: Results may vary. Severely contaminated water may require added solution. Use PURINIZE® for freshwater sources only and not salt water. Our experts are here to help. If you have any concerns or question, please contact us.
Although the exact time may vary slightly depending on conditions like water temperature and contamination level, a 60-minute wait period is suggested before drinking water treated with PURINIZE®. This 60-minute wait period ensures adequate time for PURINIZE® to disinfect and clarify water to make it suitable for drinking.
PURINIZE® can be used to treat any non-salt water source including (but not limited to) water from a tap, stream, river, lake, pond, etc.
As long as you wish. PURINIZE® has no usage restrictions. It's safe to use on a regular, everyday basis to purify any water you drink.
PURINIZE® is not required to have an expiration; it will remain effective indefinitely as long as it's properly stored. In addition, PURINIZE® won't lose potency even after opening.
In its original bottle, PURINIZE® should be stored out of direct sunlight in a dry place between 40-100°, this is because all plastics start to break down when exposed to extreme temperatures or sunlight over time.
