I thought the product works well. I did find it to be a little bulky. If you are camping or hiking, the kit has 2 very large plastic containers, a large ruler length stir stick, and several smaller pieces (chemical packets, the straining cloth & a plastic cutter). The large containers do press down but are still about 12 x 12 x 6 approx when folded down for travel. The chemical packet does exactly what it says. We were in Algoquin Provincial Park (Ontario, Canada) where the lake water is actually pretty clean. It had a slight yellow color to it but was clear enough you can see through it. After collecting water, using packet, the water was crystal clear. It was amazing. The film on the bottom is a red color that you must strain out of the water. I found this part the hardest. The kit gives you 2 containers, one for collecting water & mixing, the other to put the fresh water into, but it is a very slow process of pouring the water from one container to the other with a cheese cloth in between. The water does have a chlorine type taste as with most water purifying systems meant for this purpose. If you can deal with the color of the water being yellow, I actually liked boiling the water better, less chemical taste. But the product works exactly as described so I am not complaining. It was also inexpensive. My overall recommendation would be to get the smaller tablets if you are camping/backpacking/hiking, etc. But this kit is great for an emergency disaster kit. It would provide lots of water for a household in that type of situation where mobility is not as important and boiling water may not be an option.
