Can also be used for the general public where municipally treated water is not available or where available water is suspected of being polluted. Chlor-Floc contains a combination of flocculation and coagulation agents which promote rapid formation of sediment in treated water (sediment is easily removed by straining the water through a cloth). After clarification of the water the chlorine released by the active ingredients is then free to kill giardia lamblia cysts, bacteria, viruses, and other harmful micro-organisms which are not removed with the sediment. 30 tablets (treats 8 Gallons).

Military issue Chlor-Floc water purification tablets are used for treating individual water supplies. Chlor-Floc tablets contain flocculating agents (e.g., aluminum sulfate) to clarify the water and sodium dichloroisocyanurate, a form of chlorine, to provide disinfection.

After 15 minutes pour the water through one of the filter pouches and into a separate container (i.e., a canteen) taking care not to pour the sediment into the filter pouch. Rinse the sediment from the plastic bag and save bag for future treatment. Depending on the temperature of the water being treated 1 or 2 tablets are added. Waters warmer than 5 C require only 1 tablet while waters 5 C or colder require 2 tablets. In all cases the wait time is approximately 20 minutes (4-minute and 15-minute wait times), except when treating warmer waters (25 C) when only a total of approximately 12 minutes is required (4-minute and 7-minute wait times). The filter pouches can be reused if cleaned thoroughly with treated water. The user should always be sure to use the same side of the filter pouch for straining.
