Distilled water is water that has been purified and produced through heating, evaporation, and condensation to mirror Earth’s natural hydrologic cycle. While there are many methods out there to purify drinking water through filtration, reverse osmosis, or chemicals, no system is as singularly effective at water purification as distillation. Distillation uses phase changes to provide naturally fresh drinking water that is safe for everyone to enjoy.
What is the Hydrologic Cycle?
The hydrologic cycle, also known as Earth’s water cycle, is a continuously moving system of water that is essential to life on Earth. The hydrologic cycle relies on various processes to purify water for the planet. Water is found all over Earth in streams, rivers, lakes, ice sheets, and oceans. Heat from the sun evaporates water from any of these sources which then rises as a gas until it reaches cooler temperatures in the atmosphere. Here, the water becomes a liquid again and creates clouds. The liquid water then falls back to Earth as rain or snow and the whole cycle repeats. Water also reaches the atmosphere through transpiration which is from plants and trees.
How Do AquaNui Distillers Mirror the Water Cycle?
Distilled water is purified by capturing the steam that rises from boiling water. During the boiling process, the contaminant and the water molecule separate from each other. As the pure water rises as steam, it leaves behind the contaminants. The steam is then condensed and converted back into pure water. AquaNui Distillers are made with 304-grade stainless steel, and water is collected in a glass jar or a stainless steel storage tank. They also use carbon post filters to catch any volatile organic compounds. The consumer is left with perfectly clean water the way nature intended it to be. See our 3rd party water testing results for verification. Known and unknown contaminants are removed for optimally healthy drinking water.
What is a Water Distiller?
A water distiller is a machine that produces distilled water through boiling, evaporation, condensation on a condensing coil, and then collection into a glass jar or storage tank. AquaNui countertop water distillers come with a glass collection jar, while automatic water distillers collect water in a large multi-gallon 304-grade stainless steel storage tank.
Why Does Distillation Take Hours?
Distilling water takes time because the water needs to be boiled for the steam to be contaminant and toxin-free. It can take about 3 ½ hours for a full 3 liters of water to be evaporated. If a boiling tank runs dry, as with some cheaply made water distillers, the impurities may find their way into the steam that is supposed to become pure water. Good things come to those who wait! (If you don’t want to make distilled water daily, we recommend purchasing an automatic water distiller with a built-in boiling tank.) AquaNui distillers are made in the USA with the help of our expert technician, so that we can provide high-quality drinking water to people and businesses worldwide.
How Does Distilled Water Taste?
Vapor distilled water tastes perfectly refreshing. One reason it tastes so great is that it doesn’t have chlorine or other common disinfectant chemicals found in tap water. It does not taste like the distilled water that you buy in jugs from the store for your iron or other appliances, as that water has been sitting in a plastic jug for some time. Purchasing a AquaNui Distiller will give you, your family, and your pets all fresh drinking water. In addition to that, water from a AquaNui Distiller can be used for cooking, baking, making crystal clear ice cubes, baby formula, humidifiers, irons, and much more.
