I recently bought a WaterWise 9000 water distiller after much research into low-end water distilling. It does use
power though, but the water inLouisville, Ky recently has gotten real bad supposedly from algae blooms in the
Ohio river from the drought here. One of the features talks about the elimination of low boiling light gases that
are Discharged through the gaseous vent. Apparently, condensation of the "dry" steam from the "wet" steam to
separate the low boiling light gases occurs.
There are distillers that don't require power, but my immediate need was for something of good quality that was quick, simple, and easy to use, as well as being able to fit on the kitchen counter. This one fit the bill, though it was a bit pricey you can find them for just under $400.
