Water purification tablets are used to chemically disinfect water from untreated sources for drinking purposes. — In-game description

Chlorine Tablets, commonly known as Water Purification Tablets, are used to disinfect unclean water in Canteens, PET Bottles, Gasoline Canisters, and Water Pouchs. As of update 1.10, you can stack the tablets in your inventory.
Water is unclean when it comes from a pond or river and by drinking the unclean water the player has a high chance to contract Cholera.
It is not necessary to use these tablets on the water which comes from a water pump, as this is clean drinkable water.

TIP: When you loot a player and they have a Canteen or Plastic Bottle, empty them or use Chlorine Tablets on it. You don't know where they got it, so it might have contaminated water.



  • Chlorine Tablets were made useful in 0.55 with the implementation of Cholera.
  • Chlorine Tablets were named Water Purification Tablets up until 0.63.
  • As of 1.10, you can now stack Chlorine Tablets in your inventory
