    It depends on the quality of the water. Temperature, pH, and how cloudy the water is will effect the time you should spend treating it. If the water has large objects, make sure to strain it. Since you are using tablets, you should wait at least 30 minutes after the tablet has dissolved before drinking it. If the water is colder, it takes longer to treat the water. If the temperature is below 40 degrees fahrenheit, double the treatment time. It is best to treat the water when it is at least 60 degrees out. Place it in the sun to help warm it up. I also suggest adding lemonade mix to make it taste better.
