HOW DISTILLATION WORKS
Your water distillation system operates using the combined technology of evaporation/condensation and VOC filtration. This combined technology consistently produces high quality water 99.9% pure water. The principle of operation is quite simple. Raw water is poured into the machine where it is heated and boiled. As the water boils, it kills bacteria and other biological contaminants. The steam then rises, leaving behind virtually all the contaminants in the raw water. The steam enters the condenser where cool air reduces the temperature of the steam, converting it to distilled water as a final step; this water passes through an activated VOC post filter to improve the taste of the water. The pure water is then collected and stored in a glass container.
EASY MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE:
Weekly or every 12 gallons*: Drain the boiling tank
Monthly or every 30 gallons*: Clean the boiling tank
Every 3 months: 1) Change the VOC filter 2) Clean the exterior 3) Steam Sterilize
WATER COLLECTION JUGS
Many people like to have an additional collection jug, so that they can have one jug in the refrigerator, and another jug at the water distiller. The standard bottle that is sent with the AquaNui CT water distiller is the glass jug. We also have BPA-free plastic jugs available for your distilled water.
CT DISTILLER FILTERS
The AquaNui CT™ will boil water, collect the steam and then cool it so that distilled water condensates into the glass jar. are some chemicals that have a lower boiling point than water, these will mostly be removed by the dual volatile vents in the condensing coil. However, should they condense down over with the steam, the carbon in the VOC filter will absorb any residual gases. Purchase filters.
When the AquaNui CT™ boils water, the calcium and magnesium in the water (along with other hard minerals), can form scale. Once the scale starts to accumulate, it should be cleaned off, as it can reduce the efficiency of the unit over time. We offer a cleaner that you add to the boiling tank and allow to soak overnight, which will soften the scale so that it is easier to remove. This cleaner is called Lumen™. We also offer a wonderful exterior polish to keep your stainless steel looking shiny and new.
