 Using this item on a container full of water will purify the water. Water taken from uncertain sources like a river may be dirty. 


Nice to have if you aren't sure if you are drinking clean water. Food poisoning is nasty when 'Z's are around. If you apply this to stacked items it purifies entire containers, but only one container at a time. The difference between dirty and clean water will ensure that you don't double-purify, and that you don't drink dirty water. The only water purifying tool that can be better than this is the Atomic Coffee Maker, given it's lighter weight and volume, though one should only throw this away when they find one to replace this item.

Vehicle part

When installed as a vehicle part, if enabled, it will automatically purify rainwater collected by a funnel into clean water, at the cost of some electricity.
