Water may well be the most taken-for-granted substance on earth. It makes up 70% of our bodies, and a vast amount of the food we eat. So how can it be that we pay so little attention to it?
The only guaranteed way to get the absolute purest water is steam distillation using a water distiller. Distilled water is 99.8% pure water.
By using a water distiller you get water that is purer than any bottled or tap water, and purer than any other type of filtration or purification method.
How the Megahome 943SBS Deluxe Water Distiller works:
In the water distiller the water is first gently boiled. This kills off viruses and bacteria and leaves most of the pollutants behind. The steam is captured in a stainless steel coil where it cools to form pure water. This water then passes through an activated charcoal filter to finally remove any trace impurities.
It is incredibly easy to use, and this water distiller produces 4 litres of absolutely pure water in five to six hours. All you need to do is fill it up, switch it on and let it run. It drips the water into a glass or BPA-free polypropylene container which is designed to fit easily into a fridge and also fits inside the water distiller for easy transportation. It turns itself off automatically – you do not have to worry about it overheating.
A list of common water impurities removed by water distillers:
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, chryptosporidium, chlamydia, giardia, cysts. Radioactive: Radium, strontium 90, plutonium
This list of impurities is present in most drinking water to a greater or lesser degree. In tests the Megahome 943SBS water distiller removes 99.99% of all these contaminants.
