What does a Water Distiller do?

Written by William Fryer - MA Oxon

A water distiller purifies tap water and removes contaminants such as organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals and biological contaminants through the distillation process. A water distiller boils the water, killing contaminants and converting it to steam which is then collected in a stainless steel coil and condensed back into water.

The Megahome Water Distiller also uses a charcoal filtration system to further remove any remaining contaminants. By removing all of these contaminants, your water is left 99.99% pure, which is purer than any bottled water, filtered water or water produced from the reverse osmosis process. 

Does Distilling Water Remove Fluoride And Chlorine?

Distilling water using a water distiller does remove fluoride and chlorine from the water, as well as a host of other organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals and biological contaminants; including all of the following:

Organic Chemicals:

 

Antibiotics, Fertilizers, Pesticides, Insecticides, Herbicides, Solvents, Growth Hormones

Inorganic Chemicals:

 

Hard Water Minerals, Phosphorus, Asbestos, Selenium, Sodium, Fluoride, Iron, Lead, Mercury, Barium, Nitrates, Copper, Lead, Chlorine, Arsenic

Biological Contaminants: Bacteria, Viruses, Cryptosporidium, Chlamydia, Giardia Cysts

By removing all of these contaminants, your water is left 99.99% pure, making it much healthier and safer for you and your family to drink. The contaminants are left behind in the boiling chamber as a yellow crust which can be cleaned out.
