If the water inside the bottle isn't cloudy you can remove the protective cap. Click once and you will purify half a litre of water and click twice to purify a litre. The icon above the switch directly shows you how much water you have purified. The icon shows you want it is ready to be used. As soon as it is you submerge the pen in clear water and stir until the icon is replaced by a smiley. You can now drink the water.
