You and your family deserve only the best water! After all, the quality and quantity of water that we drink can deeply improve our health and well being.
Unfortunately, in this world of processed foods, many people consume more convenient, but less healthy beverages (such as soda) or else bottled water (which often isn’t any better than tap water and creates lots of pollution – even if you try to recycle).
So if you want the best water AND convenience, what do you do? You buy an AquaNui automatic water distiller for your home.
Selecting the Right Size of Distiller
Drinking distilled water is the best! Assuming you already decided that you want to improve the quality of the water that you consume and that you want to embrace the most sensible and economical solution for yourself and your family, the next step is to decide how much water you need.
Do you only need a little bit each day? Then a countertop unit might make sense. Do you need large amounts or do you want more convenience? Then it makes sense to consider an automatic water distiller for your home.
In choosing the right size distiller, you must first determine how much pure water your family will need per day. Assume that you will use pure distilled water not only for drinking, but also for a variety of other consumptive uses. This includes: making coffee and tea, reconstitution of various juices, making baby formula, cooking foods like pasta and soup, delicious ice, for baking, for canning and any other consumptive needs.
Do you carry a water bottle with you? Fill it up with your own distilled water and enjoy the clean pure taste. Pack your child’s lunch or send them to school with their own water as well. Most people drink more water, and enjoy water more, when it is clean, distilled water.
Don’t forget about your pets! They deserve safe, healthy water too.
As a general rule of thumb, estimate that you’ll need 2 gallons of distilled water per person per day. This ought to cover consumptive use, but it’s also good to have extra distilled water on reserve for sharing with others or for any time that you are without power.
Non-consumptive uses of distilled water include: washing and rinsing hair (you might wish to warm the distilled water up first), brushing teeth, washing delicate clothing or other cloth items such as carpet or upholstery, filling steam irons, watering house plants, restoring furniture or fine antiques, replacement water for car and truck radiators, added water to CPAP machines… and the list goes on.
So how many gallons of distilled water do you need?
These considerations can bring the total amount of distilled water needed to more gallons than you originally thought. Many people buy a small distiller and then realize it’s too small for their needs or that it’s too much of a hassle to fill every day.
However, if you don’t need a lot of distilled water (maybe just enough for one or two people) or if you have limited space (for example, inside an RV), manual distillers may be a better fit.
The Benefits of AquaNui’s Automatic Water Distillers
Automatic distillers make more water, faster. Because they have higher wattage on the heating elements, these distillers complete the distillation cycle in a shorter amount of time.
Automatic water distillers use slightly less electricity. The smaller, manual countertop water distillers require slightly more electrical energy to produce distilled water due tothe reoccurring need to heat the batches of tap water in the boiling tank to its boiling temperature.
Automatic water distillers ensure you always have water on hand. Our larger distillers use a float system in the holding tank. This means they sense when the distilled water supply is low, and start distilling more on their own. So convenient!
Essentially, automatic water distillers provide water on demand, while manual distillers must be filled by hand much like a coffee machine. Manual distillers requires you to remember to make additional batches of distilled water before running out. Automatic distillers take that mental labor out of the picture.
Automatic distillers can be plumbed to faucets or ice makers. Just equip it with a demand pump and maybe a pressure tank. Then you get fresh distilled water at the tap!
This also gives you more choices for where to put your distiller. You can keep it in the basement or even a garage (so long as temperatures don’t drop below freezing in your area). Free up space in your kitchen, and don’t worry about the slight amounts of noise and heat when the distiller is running.
We make installation easy, but you can also have a plumber install it. Please note that, in order to install a pump to a faucet or icemaker, your local municipality may require you to hire a plumber. Please check the codes in your area before purchasing and installing your water distiller. Maintenance is simple too.
Easy upgrades allow your distiller to grow with your family. Don’t forget: our AquaNui automatic water distillers are modular. Upgrade to a larger storage tank easily if you need more water!
So how do you chose a water distiller that’s right for you?
Although bigger is not always better, a larger automatic water distiller can make life easier. This makes a lot of sense for many of our customers, especially those with families or those who like the convenience of pure water on demand.
