The human body is approximately 70% water. It regulates your temperature, dissolves the body's waste product and filters out toxins. The quality of water, which is 70% of your body, can radically affect your health and well being. That is why it is vitally important that you drink only pure water.

A distiller provides you with a ready supply of quality drinking water for just pennies a gallon.

Even in this age of high technology, there is no perfect purification process. However, when you consider the other alternatives...distillation comes the closest to producing perfect water.

In fact, distillation is widely recognized as the single most effective method of purification.

How Steam Distillation Works

Steam distillation kills harmful bacteria and viruses, removes virtually all foreign particles, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, chlorine and most volatile organic chemicals (VOCs).

Water is heated in a chamber and turned into vapor (steam). This water vapor rises leaving impurities behind in the boiling chamber. The purified vapor then enters a condenser where it is cooled and returned to the liquid state.

1 Ordinary tap water is heated to 212 degrees F (100 degrees C), killing bacteria, cysts and viruses by continuous boiling.
2 Steam rises leaving behind dissolved solids, salts, heavy metals and other substances.
3 Low boiling light gases are vented.
4 Steam is condensed in a stainless steel coil.
5 Distilled water then percolates through a coconut shell carbon filter, enhancing quality by adsorption of VOCs.
6 The purified drinking water is collected and stored.

Quality distillers are designed to remove light gases by venting and special carbon post filter treatment. Unlike simple water filtration, bacteria growth is virtually nonexistent since water is passed through a natural coconut shell carbon only after it has been steam distilled. Thus, any bacteria that was previously in the water has been killed and left behind by the distillation process.

The Highest Quality Water Consistently Over Time

Distillation provides you with consistent purity, gallon after gallon, year in year out. Neither reverse osmosis nor carbon filtration can guarantee consistent quality over time. The purity of your drinking and cooking water is guaranteed when you use a quality home distiller.

The "Home Economics" of Distilled Water

Home distillation is also more economical than other alternatives. It's far less expensive than bottled water. For example, an efficient distiller makes a gallon of fresh distilled water at home for about 25 cents vs. bottled water at 89 cents.

Home distillation is convenient. You never have to run out for water between shopping trips and there are no storage problems or heavy bottles. There is no worry about the quality and freshness of homemade distilled water.
