Why do we choose distillation as the only method for producing pure H2O?




It is an effective way to reduce virtually all unwanted minerals, chemicals and tastes from the water. With a purity of less than 10 PPM (parts per million) contaminants - 'that is clean!'
Another particular benefit is that it uses no chemicals, thus avoiding the creation of new chemical complexes, that could be carcinogenic (cancer forming).
It is not a wasteful method of producing pure water. Small household distillers waste no water and commercial distillers 'dump' approximately 20% of water consumption every 24 hours (to maintain the cleanliness of the boiling chamber). Reverse osmosis (RO) systems on the other hand are gross waster of water. It is not uncommon for a household RO system, producing approximately 8 - 12 litres, to waste up to 52 litres per day. That is an approximate 80% wastage! In South Africa, which is presently classified as a water-stressed country (have less than 1 700 cubic metres of water for each person per year), this is a very environmentally irresponsible way to purify our household drinking water? If we donít learn how to use our limited supplies wisely, we will move into the water-scarcity category of less than 1 000 cubic metres per person per year by 2025.
