Over the years I purchased a lot of different water purification products. Most of them were water filters and one was a reverse osmosis product. None of these were perfect as some impurities and toxins just can’t be filtered out. Probably like most people I didn’t change the filters frequently enough because they were expensive or difficult to replace. After I purchased my ozone steam sauna which requires the use of distilled water I decided to purchase a water distiller. They are surprisingly affordable (under $200) for a unit that can distill up to a gallon at a time. The maintenance is pretty simple and inexpensive too.
I have been very happy with my distiller. It is quite amazing to see the brown/white residue that remains in the stainless steel water container after the distillation process is complete; especially when you consider that I distill water that has been prefiltered by my under the counter kitchen filter. Who knows what is in that residue? It could be anything, including waterborne contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, organic and inorganic chemicals, fluoride, fecal matter, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, and cadmium, cysts, and other contaminants that are dumped in our water supply. Chlorine and other gases are expelled from the waste vent as the water is distilled.
Contrary to what some people say I don’t believe that drinking distilled water is harmful. It is the purest water that you can drink. It was interesting to read a customer review which stated that heart arrhythmias disappeared when the person started drinking distilled water. I have started recommending distilled water to my patients and it will be interesting to see what they will report as they avoid the contaminants in their drinking water.
