Back | Frequantly Asked Questions/Water Distillers

How much do they cost?

Counter top distillers range in price from $380 to $500, larger automatic units start at about $1700 and increase from there depending on the choice of storage capacity and accessories.

What do you do about replacing the minerals removed?

The minerals that exist in tap water are of an inorganic form and are not beneficial to your system. Minerals that your body needs are in an organic form that you would get from your foods and fresh vegetables.

How much electricity does it use?

The distillers use about 3.2 kilowatts per gallon. Based on the national average electrical cost of 8.48 cents per kilowatt hour, this equates to approximately 28 cents per gallon.

How big is it… will it fit on my counter?

The countertop distillers are about the size of a large coffee maker. They will easily fit on a standard counter. The dimensions are approximately 10" by 16" by 15" tall when in operation.

Is it OK to use softened water, since it says not to use
salt water?

Yes, the small amount of salt remaining in softened water will not hurt your distiller, in fact using your softened water will make it easier to clean your distiller, because most of the hard minerals have been removed by the softener.

What is the pH of distilled water?

Water produced through steam distillation in combination with carbon filtration is some of the purest water available. Theoretically, pure water should have a neutral pH reading (7.0). But the very purity that should make steam distilled water neutral also makes it very sensitive to the addition of other substances. The near absence of dissolved solids means the smallest amount of any substance will dramatically change the pH of distilled water.

How long do they last…and what is the warranty?

Our distillers typically provide three to five years of uninterrupted, trouble-free service. These units are warrantied against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year from date of purchase.

What materials are the collectors made of… and are they BPA-free?

The material used in the Model 4000 collector is glass and is BPA free. The material used for our Model 8800 is polypropylene. The collector/dispenser bottle of the 9000 is Tritan. Both of these materials are BPA-free. Our 7000 series is stainless steel and BPA-free, as well.

Why aren’t all of your collectors made of glass?

Glass is not as readily available as it used to be and the unique shapes of our collectors make it more difficult and very expensive to obtain molds, etc., for our small quantities. It also takes several years to design, test, and get

approval for new containers. And glass, being very fragile, does not ship well, and is not as easy to handle.

Does it remove everthing… minerals, vitamins, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals?

Tap water is brought to a boil. Steam rises and enters the condensing coil. Cool air is passed across the condenser, converting steam back to pure distilled water. The distilled water then percolates through the coconut shell carbon filter and is collected. The process of steam distillation combined with carbon post filtration effectively removes at least 99% of impurities.

Why do I need to use carbon filters… doesn’t distillation remove everthing? Will it work without the filter?

Yes, it will work without the filter, but the volatile organic compounds found in the water can cause a bad taste, and could be carcinogenic. The post carbon filter will remove the VOC’s from the water and eliminate the bad taste.

How much water does it make?

One gallon of 100% steam distilled water is produced in 4 to 4.5 hours, up to 6 gallons in 24 hours.

How long does it take?

One gallon of 100% steam distilled water is produced in 4 to 4.5 hours.
