while reviewing my gear for an upcoming trip i saw my last bottle of Klearwater is about empty (still yellow after a year in the fridge!).

i quick search of the archives told me the reason i was having a hard time locating a bottle, so now i'm looking for an alternative. the beauty part is the pre-mix, and i'm just not finding another pre-mix out there. i have no experience with tabs or 2 part systems.

any suggestions that are light and relatively low cost?

I recently sent a new email enquiry to XiniX and received a reply from them as well. I received three 32oz bottles this week!

The email is:

Is there any website that sells this or do you have to contact the company directly? Is there a place that have the prices listed?

Email directly for Klear Water on 04/30/2009 19:12:19 MDT Print View

I emailed Klear Water and, in their reply, they said they would ship 32oz bottles to me and then I could mail them a check or money order for the amount plus postage.

I would suggest that you email them and give them the number of bottles you want and your shipping address. Most likely they will just confirm in email and ship to you directly. I got mine in less than a week and the shipping cost was $2.70.

You don't mail the check until you receive the product on 04/30/2009 19:13:40 MDT Print View

I wasn't clear about this... you don't have to mail the check until you actually receive the product.

Xinix is pleased to back up and running making their product available to the hiking community again. I am in touch with them and will be restocking the BPL store with their product as soon as they can have it ready for me.

Pray tell, what's wrong with the Katadyn chlorine dioxide tablets?? Why carry a liquid solution?
