Technical Information
  • Developed in conjunction with the U.S. military, the MIOX Purifier offers ease of use and reliability for purifying large volumes of water
  • Works by creating a powerful dose of mixed oxidants (MIOX), which is then added to untreated water, inactivating viruses, bacteria, giardia, and cryptosporidium, which even iodine doesn't kill

  • Features a safety indicator to ensure your treated water is safe to drink
  • Requires only batteries and salt to operate — it's practically maintenance-free
  • Pocket-sized adaptation of municipal grade purification system
