Frequently Asked Questions:
Do water distillers remove everything… minerals, vitamins, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals?
Tap water is brought to a boil. Steam rises and enters the condensing coil. Cool air is passed across the condenser, converting steam back to pure distilled water. The distilled water then percolates through the coconut shell carbon filter and is collected. The process of steam distillation combined with carbon post filtration effectively removes at least 99% of impurities.
Why do I need to use carbon filters… doesn’t distillation remove everything? Will it work without the filter?
Yes, it will work without the filter, but the volatile organic compounds found in the water can cause a bad taste, and could be carcinogenic. The post carbon filter will remove the VOC’s from the water and eliminate the bad taste.
What maintenance is involved?
For optimum performance, you should rinse the boiler after every distillation cycle to remove any loose residue. As deposits build up, use an approved cleaner for monthly cleaning—this frequency varies depending on the quality and hardness of the tap water and frequency of use. The carbon post filter cup should be discarded and replaced every two months, or when an undesirable taste
What do you do about replacing the minerals removed?
The minerals that exist in tap water are of an inorganic form and are not beneficial to your system. Minerals that your body needs are in an organic form that you would get from your foods and fresh vegetables.
How big is it… will it fit on my counter?
Most countertop distillers are about the size of a large coffee maker. They will easily fit on a standard counter. The dimensions are approximately 10″ by 16″ by 15″ tall when in operation, depending on the home water distiller purchased.
Is it OK to use softened water, since it says not to use salt water?
Yes, the small amount of salt remaining in softened water will not hurt your distiller, in fact using your softened water will make it easier to clean your distiller, because most of the hard minerals have been removed by the softener.
Why is distilled water better than alkalized water?
Distilled water is the purest form of water available to the average consumer. Your body needs pure water to work at its optimum performance removing waste. Alkalized water has to have contaminants in the water to have the capacity to be alkalized. Water with pH above 7 has a tendency to make your system create more acidic conditions to offset the alkaline water, therefore it actually works in reverse to some information being circulated.
What is the pH of distilled water?
Water produced through steam distillation in combination with carbon filtration is some of the purest water available. Theoretically, pure water should have a neutral pH reading (7.0). But the very purity that should make steam distilled water neutral also makes it very sensitive to the addition of other substances. The near absence of dissolved solids means the smallest amount of any substance will dramatically change the pH of distilled water.
