What is distilled water?
Distillation is nature's way of purifying water. When the sun heats water this causes evaporation, an example of distillation on the grand scale. Vapor rises from the surface of water, leaving behind all its impurities. These water vapors rise and cool as air temperature in the upper atmosphere drops, and the vapors change from gas to liquid, becoming water, ice, or snow. If our atmosphere was not polluted, each drop of rain or snow would be pure water.
A distillation system is man’s attempt to copy nature’s form of water purification. As with evaporation in nature, distillation actually removes water (in the form of steam vapor) from the heavier materials that are its impurities. Other types of water treatment attempt to remove contaminants from water, rather than removing water from the contaminants.
This is how distillation in a Durastill™ distiller works: In the boiling chamber of the distiller, tap water is heated to 212° F, killing microbes: bacteria, viruses, and parasites. The heat produces steam which rises, leaving behind inorganic minerals, chemicals and all other contaminants in the boiling tank. As the water temperature rises, the light gases boil off and are discharged through the gaseous vent.
A stainless steel condenser cools the steam, turning it into high quality distilled water. This water passes from the condenser through an optional post carbon filter, and the purified distilled water is collected in a reservoir. The end result is the world's most PERFECT WATER.
All other water purification systems "attempt" to purify water by removing the contaminants from the water. (We say "attempt" to purify water because all other systems are not very good at it.) Distillation is the ONLY water purification system that removes the WATER FROM THE CONTAMINANTS. It's a NEAR-PERFECT process and much better than all other water purification. Distilled water is better than filtration and even reverse osmosis.
What's in your water?
Common impurities in drinking water:
inorganic minerals your body cannot use. They cannot be absorbed into the cell wall as nutrition; they become distributed elsewhere in the body, causing degenerative diseases like arthritis, kidney stones, gallstones, arterial hardening, plaque build-up and more.
chlorine and sodium fluoride
medical waste (prescription medication that has been improperly disposed into the water supply)
In some cases, there is even fecal material. (To learn of "boil water" alerts in your area, check your local media and municipal authorities. It happens often – all across America – more often than you think.)
