Counter top water distiller

It’s been close to 10 years since I was doing water sanitation testing, but from what I recall RO and distilled water are not much different. The only difference between RO and distilled is some RO systems re-add the minerals the RO membrane removed.

I was going to write a thesis, but I found a good article that explains it. @SWSVIC if your RO doesn’t re-add the minerals you’re basically distilling water that already had everything removed by the RO.

Little overkill.

I’m sure it is overkill haha but I already have the equipment and years worth of replacement filters so I figured why the hell not haha. If it only makes cleaning/maintaining the distiller a bit easier that’s worth it to me haha. I believe I read somewhere that distilling does not remove chloramine from tap water but RO does. Thus I figured if I run the RO and then Distill I’d be in the best shape as far as water is concerned. :man_shrugging:t2:

True, but if you filter the distilled water through a carbon filter it will remove some of it.

If I had both RO and a distiller I’d stick to RO. Running a distiller can be expensive due to the electricity it requires. But that’s me.
