Alike oxygen, water is one of the basic necessities for human survival. Imagine how tough life would be if you can’t drink water after exercising, after eating food and worse when you are thirsty. Drinking clean, purified water is a right for every human. Sadly, because of rising pollution and increase of salt and mineral content, ordinary or tap water is mostly unfit for human consumption.
This is where distilled water comes to the picture. Distillation is the process used for purifying water by thermal treatment. Although, this process of purification has been used since 200 AD, it gained popularity just a while ago. Since water is filtered via evaporation and condensation, hence distilled water does not contain any impurities such as salt or minerals. Distilled water generally tastes bland and when filtered accurately, it is considered to be purest form of water. Continue reading →
Over the past few decades, man has become more aware about what goes inside his body. Now, he consumes healthier food and opts for cleaner drinking water. This is where distilled water comes into the picture. Although, the process of distillation has been used since 200 AD, yet the concept of drinking distilled water on regular basis is relatively new.
Currently, distilled water for drinking is used in areas where regular or tap water is packed with minerals, salts and harmful pathogens. In such a scenario, distilled water drinking is healthier and beneficial as it protects from water-borne diseases and flushes out toxins. The process of distillation uses the scientific technique of evaporation of water and later its condensation, during which minerals and salts are deposited on the distiller while only the water evaporates.

You must have heard or read about the term called ‘Distillation.’ But have you ever wondered what it really is? Have you ever pondered about how distilled water can actually be beneficial for you than ordinary tap water?
The filtration system of distilling the water is based on the concept that all the solid impurities dissolved in water are heavier than water molecules and on heating the water in a distiller, all the solid products such as salts, bacteria, calcium remain as it is and the pure water converts into steam which is then collected for condensation. The distilled water does not have any flavor as all the minerals have been removed.Normal ordinary water or natural tap water is contaminated with many microorganisms and minerals such as lead and iron. In certain situations, water like this cannot be ingested by the human body and may carry pathogens of water-borne diseases. Therefore, the process of distillation is used, wherein water is boiled until it changes to steam and then steam is condensed back into water. Such kind of water, which is popularly available at supermarkets and stores, is called distilled water. It is the purified form of water which contains nothing but hydrogen and oxygen having a pH level of 7. Continue reading →
There is no denying the fact that water is one of the most essential products for human survival. In fact, just imagining about living without water for a day is traumatizing. But drinking pure, healthy water is a necessity. Consuming contaminated water is not only unhealthy for your body, but also severely threatening, as the minerals and pathogens in water may be carriers of water-borne diseases. One can understand the necessity of purified drinking water by the fact that almost 75 percent of the children dying before the age of five succumb to water borne diseases. Continue reading →
In science, we all have been taught about the process of distillation, wherein water distillers remove contamination from the ordinary water and make it fit for human consumption and other purposes. Distillation of water removes salt and minerals by boiling the water at its boiling point, say 100°C. As the water is heated it changes into steam and is collected in a container leaving behind all the heavy metal impurities. The process of making water pure can be done using water distiller which is available in many sizes which can fit on most countertops. The distillation process makes the water 99% pure by removing the dirt particles and other metals that aren’t fit for human consumption. Continue reading →
