Distilled Water and Your Family’s Health

You read food labels and keep dangerous chemicals in locked cupboards. In short, you do everything you can to protect your family from dangerous contaminants. So can we ask you a question? What’s in your water?

Though you can’t see, taste or smell most of them, more than 85,000 contaminants can be found in the water supply. These contaminants may be affecting you and your family. Waterborne contaminants have been linked to:

  • Birth defects — A study released by Texas A&M has identified a link between nitrate pollution in water and crippling birth defects. The study explains how contaminated water can cause spina bifida, cleft palate, and missing limbs in newborns. Distillation removes nitrates from water.
  • High blood pressureBarium, a silvery-white metal found in the environment, may damage the heart and cardiovascular system and is associated with high blood pressure in laboratory animals. Drinking distilled water, which meets EPA standards, is associated with little or no risks posed by barium.
  • Alzheimer’s Disease — Research by neuroscientists at the University of Rochester Medical Center and presented at the 2007 annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience shows that drinking tap water containing trace levels of copper may increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Vapor distillation, a form of water purification, is recognized by scientists and leading health practitioners as being the best method for removing harmful contaminants and creating high-purity, fresh drinking water. Water is critical to your body’s functions and consuming pure water is essential for good health and wellness. Health and nutrition experts, such as Dr. Michael Colgan, Dr. Peter A. Lodewick and Dr. Andrew Weil, prefer steam distillers to purify their water.

“I use a steam distiller to purify my water, because I believe distilled water is the cleanest you can get.” – Andrew Weil, M.D., author of The Healthy Kitchen


Remove Contaminants with Steam Distillation

Vapor distillation is the best way to get pure water because it mimics nature’s way of removing contaminants …
AquaNui by Pure Water Mimics the Natural Water Cycle


The Hydrologic Cycle


1. Surface water evaporates as it’s warmed by the sun. A heavy-duty, stainless steel, boiling tank with a 15-year limited warranty heats your source water, converts it to steam and purifies it.
2. Water vapor gathers and condenses, forming clouds. A high-quality stainless steel coil condenses purified steam.
3. Freshly purified water descends as rain. Fresh, high-purity distilled water collects inside a stainless steel storage tank right in your home.

The outcome with AquaNui is fresh, high-purity water, just like Nature does it. In fact, the water is so pure a distilled water unit is perfect for laboratory settings as well as in the home. Read our blog — We have lots of articles explaining steam distillation.


Comparing Distillation to Other Water Purification Methods

You can find many options for purifying drinking water including filters and reverse osmosis. Steam distillation is most effective at removing contaminants from water. Independent labs have tested AquaNui Water Purifiers. The results show that our distillation systems, including the AquaNui™ Brand, effectively remove dissolved inorganic compounds from water and produce drinking water that’s 99.9% free of dangerous contaminants …

A “✓” equals greater than 99.9% contaminant reduction. “Partially” indicates contaminant reduction by at least 50% but less than 99.9%. *Filter capacity to reduce contaminants diminishes as filter is used. Also, filters need to be replaced and cleaned frequently. **Data for premium advanced household RO models only. Some RO models will produce less results than noted here.

“There are a number of water purification technologies available. But of all the technologies, none is as effective as steam distillation.” – Al Meder, President, Pure & Secure

Reverse Osmosis and Carbon Filters Fail Over Time

Steam water distillers perform with greater effectiveness than do reverse osmosis systems and other filter-based systems right from Day One. And, they continue to perform effectively, long after reverse osmosis systems and carbon filter devices have had to have their filters replaced.

Comparison of Water Purity between Filters, Reverse Osmosis and Distillation

Typical carbon filter units (red) and reverse osmosis machines (yellow) require filter changes at 3 month and 6 month intervals respectively.

In the final analysis, steam distillation provides the best source of high-purity water.

  • All filters, including reverse osmosis systems, simply do not provide effective results consistently over time.
  • Carbon filters cannot remove radioactive elements, inorganic contaminants and biological threats, such as bacteria and viruses.
  • Reverse osmosis filters do not remove viruses and only partially remove nitrates and bacteria.
  • Only steam distillation produces high-purity water consistently over time and from location to location regardless of the incoming water.


Water and Your Pocketbook

Cost comparison of one 8 oz. glass of bottled water vs water delivery vs distilled water

You are not paying extra to own a steam water distiller. You are paying less.

Figures include cost of the treatment system and electricity over the life of the machine. AquaNui distiller cost based on 10 cents/kilowatt-hour residential electrical rate for Lincoln, Nebraska. Bottled water price based on a leading bottled water brand and water delivery service available in Lincoln, Nebraska. The AquaNui distiller cost per glass is rounded up.

Water and The Environment

Bottled water is flooding our environment with wastes. Here are just a few of the sobering statistics from a recent article in the Huffington Post :

  • Out of the 50 billion bottles of water being bought each year, 80% end up in a landfill, even though recycling programs exist.
  • 17 million barrels of oil are used in producing bottled water each year.
  • 1,500 bottles of water are consumed per SECOND in the U.S.
  • It takes three times the volume of water to manufacture one bottle of water than it does to fill it, and because of the chemical production of plastics that water is mostly unusable.

Drinking distilled water is a responsible choice for the planet.
