How Do They Work?

The automatic filling feature is easily connected to a convenient water source. The automatic float level control coordinates precise filling of the boiler. When the boiler is full, the heating element is activated and the distilling process begins. When the storage reservoir volume is increased to the proper upper level, again the automatic controls will deactivate the boiler and will remain on standby. When the water level in the storage reservoir is reduced to the proper lower level, the boiler is automatically reactivated, and refills the storage reservoir with purified water.

All functions on the distillation unit are automatically controlled, and require no manual monitoring. Cleaning the boiler is quick and easy. First, turn off the electricity, then open the external valve located on the side. Drain away the contaminants that have been separated from the feed water. Permit the boiler to refill before turning on the electricity.

As you can see, the Running Waters commercial water distiller is definitely the best available option for any application. We look forward to serving your needs. Please contact us for any questions and be assured that your satisfaction is guaranteed.

In the wake of recent events on the Gulf Coast many people have been asking the same questions: Is my local water supply contaminated, and how can I make sure that my family is protected from contaminated water? Hurricanes Katrina and Rita have had a major impact on the entire region, and has damaged water supplies, even totally destroyed the drinking water in some communities. Some areas were impacted by severely salinated water, while others had oil, fuel, and sewage in their water supplies and wells due to the flooding. The options are varied as to how to handle this situation. You can drink bottled or filtered water. You can also go with a clean drinking water distiller. The choices may not be as varied as you thought though. There are many different types of water purification – only one provides pure drinking water.

Bottles and Filters!

There are some pretty strong reasons why filtered water is good, and some pretty strong reasons why filtered water doesn’t cut it. Water from an outside source, in many cases, is simply bottled well water. While it may be filtered against some impurities, simple filtration is inadequate to completely purify your water. Is it bad? No. Water being one of the best solvents known, however, lends to it picking up particles of anything and everything that it touches. From chemical residue for plastic bottling to rock material from streams and waterways, all the way to bacteria and residue from the very filter that is supposed to clean it, water usually comes with something extra.

We’ve been drinking it since the dawn of time, so why change now?

It is well documented that the human body is 55% to 75% water. Also known is that when we drink water, we are replacing water that we have lost through digestion or excretion. The water that you consume actually becomes you! It also helps in digestion, helps regulate temperature. It is essential to weight loss and helps to keep the weight off. Body water cushions joints and bones and protects you from injury. Becoming dehydrated can cause you to retain water, and just like standing water becomes stagnant, retained water becomes polluted by your body as it absorbs toxins from your system. When you drink impure water, you are introducing those impurities to your system and they may stay there!

The Clean Drinking Water Distiller

Distillation is a process that occurs in nature – we can witness it by watching water evaporate. Have you ever left a container full of water out in the sun? When the water evaporates, it leaves behind a residue in its container. This residue is the same residue that water leaves behind in you! Clean drinking water distillers usually use steam distillation to mimic nature. When water becomes steam, it leaves behind all of the impurities and dead bacteria (that are killed by the boiling which produces steam) and becomes 100% pure H20. When the clean drinking water is recondensed, it is 100% pure, as it was intended by nature. A Running Waters clean drinking water distiller, for example, is capable of purifying your water just like nature intended. There is no cleaner source for water, not from a natural spring or from a bottle. Check our products out to find the right kind of clean drinking water distiller for you.

Pouring WaterThe Environmental Protection Agency has published some facts that we should all know more about. Standards have been set by the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974, setting acceptable standards of over two dozen water contaminators. Not only does this act cover bacteria and radioactive substances, it also extends to inorganic such as lead, nitrates, arsenic and a group of pesticides and weed killers. There are over 140,000 community water systems serving over 90% of our population. Most of these are using some type of control to assure good water for their consumers. The EPA has stated that the only “pure water” is distilled water. We cannot add chemicals to make “pure water.” We add chemicals to control that portion which affects health.

Here is a list of what is being used.

  • CHLORINE – a disinfectant to control bacteria and other microorganisms.
  • FLOURINE- to aid in preventing tooth decay.
  • LIME- to control acidic water and retard corrosion in water pipes.
    COPPER SULFATE- to kill algae.
  • ALUMINUM SULFATE- to cause particles to clump together and settle.
  • SODIUM BISULFATE and SULFUR DIOXIDE

The Safe Water Drinking Act is again before Congress for renewal. The number of chemicals being added to the list will set the standards higher.

Most of these 140,000 water systems are old and tired. Pipes break, collapse and crumble, threatening the delivery and safety of our drinking water. Collapsing water and sewage pipes will be headline stories over the next 20 years.

Most people who have wells believe they don’t have all that junk in their well. Really, they don’t know what they have. Are they immune to having contaminated drinking water when they have a well?

We must remember most ground contaminates are chemical by-products of civilization. Everything from septic drain fields to run-off from highway weed control to the thousands of chemicals used in agriculture. All are invisible and hard to detect until they seep down into the water table. Here they concentrate, fill our wells and we pump it up and drink it all over again.

TomatoWe drink about 16,000 gallons of water in a lifetime. Most of us require about 2-3 quarts each day. Much of this comes from our food sources. For example: A tomato is 95% water, the form it takes doesn’t matter as long as there is enough fluid for your body to produce about a quart of urine a day.

A practice started about 50 years ago known as water softening, replacing calcium and magnesium. The replacing agent is sodium. For many people, sodium should be avoided. It causes fluid retention, gas, heartburn and cardiovascular problems. It may cause soap to suds better but it should be limited as a drinking fluid.

I spent some time in one of our local supermarkets reading labels. Bottled water comes in as many forms as the containers. Prices range from $.69 to $.89 a gallon from all sorts of places. Some come from as far away as France. Some with fizz, some without.

carbonated waterLet’s talk about “fizz.” Fizz is the entrapment of carbonic gas held in the fluid under pressure. When we open the container and release the pressure, the gas comes out of the solution and appears as “fizzable bubbles.” There are even fizz makers for making your own fizz water. All fizz gases cause the fluid to be more acidic. It is not an indication that the fluid is fit to drink.

I’ve heard people say, “Oh well, don’t worry, we have a filter.” Now, let’s talk openly about what they really have. Some filtering equipment comes in single stage units; others in several stages. The most common is the single stage unit fastening to the water faucet in the kitchen. This unit has an activated charcoal replaceable cartridge. This type of unit is fine when you first install it. But by the second or third day, the charcoal has now trapped a whole bunch of microorganisms and has become an ideal breeding place for bacteria. Although instructions say change the cartridge every 30 days; what about the 3-29?

The multi-stage is normally with a first stage filter to trap out sediment. The fluid then passes into a charcoal stage. We need not go over that again, do we? There is an old saying that goes, “Sometimes the cure is worse than the illness.”

Another way is the old-fashioned boiling method. Let’s review what is taking place. We take a clean pot and fill it with tap water. Heat it on the stove until it boils. Some say keep it boiling for three minutes; others say as much as 20 minutes. Many things are happening. Long before it boils, as the temperature is rising, we can see a vapor coming from the water’s surface. This vapor is the entrapped gases that are now freed. They are the corrosive carbon dioxide (fizz) and other toxic gases.

The longer it boils, the more water evaporates. This evaporation is now concentrating the mineral content (rock). If we forge (it sometimes happens) and the pot boils dry, we find the minerals and toxic chemicals in the bottom of the pot. What have we done? We’ve let our pure drinking water go up in steam.

Let’s say this doesn’t happen. We boil it three minutes to kill all of the bacteria and microorganisms. We now pour the water into a clean glass bottle and seal it tight. We feel we have some pretty good water. What we really have is water full of boiled microorganisms and increased ratio of minerals and toxic chemicals. Now what are we going to do next?

This series of comments about water is not meant to cause great alarm. I’ve only wanted to make you aware of the hazards of drinking water that has not been distilled. Yes, distilled.

Being aware of this need for pure drinking water, we have turned once again to “Necessity is the mother of invention.” We have not invented a magic gadget. What we have is a method of making your own “pure distilled drinking water.”

It is a distillation process whereby tap water is boiled to make steam, the steam is then turned into cool, pure distilled water, leaving behind all minerals, toxic chemicals and boiled microorganisms to be returned to earth.

Consider this: We all pay approximately $.05+ per kilowatt-hour for electricity. The cost for you to make one gallon of pure distilled water is only $.10. Not $.99 for someone else’s bottled well water.

RUNNING WATERS economical distiller with direct hook-up, automatic fill and shut-off will provide your family, friends and employees with a ready and convenient supply of pure water.

Throughout history water has always been the key element in many developments.

Our first civilizations were all founded around great sources of water; wars have been fought over water, even to this day. Water rights are extremely important. Man’s continued survival depends upon water. Man can live without food for as long as two months, without water, no more than ten days!

Water covers seven-tenths of our planet and it remains one of the most misunderstood substances. It behaves like no other element. For example: At earth’s normal temperature, it can exist in three forms, as a solid (ice), as a liquid, or as a gas. One of its misbehaviors is when most substances solidify, they contract. Not water. It expands. Only one substance exceeds water in the ability to absorb and retain heat. It has the ability to climb up surfaces against the pull of gravity. But it is water’s ability to act as a solvent that makes it indispensable to life. It serves to carry nutrients to our tissues and cells. It can also be deadly; being the bearer of toxic chemicals, parasites and bacteria.

There is no new water on earth. It has all been here since the beginning of time. We cannot destroy it.

A few days ago, while talking to an old friend, the comment was made that water flowing in a mountain stream, bubbling among the rocks, purifies itself after traveling a certain distance. Neither of us could remember whether it was ten or twenty feet, which is not important because this old tale is wrong.

Water from rain, even without industrial pollution, is slightly acidic. We all know certain plants like acidic conditions for growth. Also, that as the leaves fall and decay, they release acids. All of this mold, acid and decay matter is carried along in our mountain streams. Can we really call it “MOUNTAIN PURE WATER?”

Think for a moment. Have we ever seen a square piece of natural stone? Wasn’t that gravel or creek stone, washed by this mountain water? Let’s now consider where the sharp edges went. Possibly it could have worn away by tumbling over and over in the creek bed. But, as we noted the water being slightly acidic, could the water have dissolved the sharp edges and now we have this dissolved rock as a portion of our drinking water?

Sounds absurd to ask but are we now be drinking rocks? Well, I’m going to ask all of you to join me in a very simple test: We talked about three forms of water; solid, liquid and gas. Each time water changes its form; the H2O portion is the only portion that changes.

Glass with iceFor this personal experiment, you will need a clean, clear drinking glass (8 oz. or larger). This evening, just before bedtime, fill this glass with all the ice cubes it will hold. Set it where the ice will melt. In the morning, carefully lift the glass overhead. Looking up through the bottom, you will see that a milky sludge has settled overnight. This sludge is really the sharp edges of the mountain creek rocks. As we can see, we really are drinking rocks.

We talked about water’s ability to dissolve mineral elements. Let’s now look at metals. We all know what water does to iron. We call it rust. Water has dissolved the iron, leaving the oxides and impurities. This iron is now an element carried along by our drinking water. All of this is self-evident by the stains on our bath and kitchen fixtures. Do we drink it? You bet we do!

Since WWII, our household plumbing has changed from iron and lead to copper pipes. This makes our water service much easier to install and a much longer life for our plumbing.

Recently, a comment was overheard indication that our neighbor’s water had a blue/green tint. I became concerned, and I’ll tell you why. Since we know that water is acidic, some wells are more acidic than others. When acidic well water comes in contact with copper pipes, it causes a decomposition of the copper. Most times this occurs at the joints where lead and tin solder has been used. These dissimilar metals cause an action called electrolysis. The copper comes into solution in the water and we drink it, cook with it and bathe in it.

It is well known that studies have shown that copper in the human body affect mental processes such as early senility, memory loss or confusion in the elderly, slow learning in growing children and mental defects in newborns. A simple cure for some may be only a change in drinking water from a different source. Be a little more careful about where your drinking water comes from and what it contains.

PURE WATER

Water is an excellent solvent and is therefore, never found in its purest form in nature. It has a tendency to combine with many materials, and is treated with many chemicals. However, pure water is a simple compound, composed of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen.

We are the only distiller manufacturer, which incorporates a waste heat recovery circuit.

Here’s how it works. The steam from the boiler enters behind the condenser at the top and circulates downward in a serpentine fashion, condensing into water. A small fan blows air across the condenser.

Now for the good part. The incoming cold water travels also in a serpentine fashion from the bottom of the condenser upward to the top absorbing heat from the cooling steam.

As a result the water entering the boiler no longer enters at 55 degrees requiring a temperature rise of approximately 155. This incoming water now enters your boiler at approximately 150 – 160 degrees. Now the heat required to increase the temperature to boiling is greatly reduced and lowering your electrical cost to produce a gallon of distilled water.

If your cost for electricity is 7-8 cents a kilowatt-hour, using a 1500-watt boiling element, your cost of operation will be from 10 – 12 cents per hour.

The easiest way to answer this question is to go back to nature. The process by which nature renews and purifies itself is very much like distillation. Water evaporates in nature and becomes gaseous, which forms clouds. Contaminants and particles that have been absorbed by the water as it erodes the earth and collects bacteria from its surroundings are left behind and the water vapor forms clouds. When the water returns to earth in most cases it is 100% h20. Due to air pollution over the last few hundred years most rain picks up some acidity from the air, however, so drinking rainwater is usually not the best option, although rainwater IS very clean compared to ground water or even tap water.

Steam distillation reproduces the natural process of evaporation, first by heating the water to boiling and converting it to steam. The boiling process kills bacteria in the water, and the process of converting to a gaseous form leaves behind the dead bacteria as well as heavy metal and dirt particles that can be found in tap water and ground water. The steam recondenses into 100% pure clean h20. What many people don’t realize is that water purification equipment is not just for drinking. There are many applications for water purification equipment including:

  • Aquariums: Distilled water is clean and uncloudy where fish are happier in a chlorine-free tank.
  • Baby formulas: Boiling tap water kills bacteria, but it doesn’t remove harmful contaminants.
  • Beverages: Coffee, tea, and your favorite water based beverages are much tastier when you use distilled water. Ice cubes made with distilled water won’t spoil the taste of beverages.
  • Complexion Care: Feel the difference with distilled water … tap water impurities can clog skin pores.
  • Contact Lenses: Use distilled water to clean your contact lenses. It won’t irritate your eyes.
  • Cooking: Chlorine-free soups and vegetables – taste the improvement – pots and pans are easier to clean.
  • Humidifiers: Eliminates white dust, mineral salt, and rust concerns. Add more life and efficiency.
  • Kettles: Inside and outside of kettles will stay looking new.
  • Low sodium: 99.9% of sodium is removed in the distillation process.
  • Pets: They’ll love you for giving them clean water.
  • Photography: Perfect development.
  • Plant: Plants and cut flowers live longer and look healthier because, just like nature’s rainwater, distilled water is free of mineral salts.
  • Steam Irons: Eliminate scaling of steam iron vents. Irons will operate more efficiently and last longer.
  • Wet-Cell Batteries: Car batteries last longer with Distilled Water.
