If you’re in an emergency situation or just want this device for your use, there is an alternative that will take about a weekend of your spare time to build. The project we suggest will make use of the sunny area in your backyard to give you as much distilled water as you want. The DIY solar water distiller is not that difficult to successfully make, but there are some things you should pay attention to in the process, like making the box air tight or making sure the water depth is 2 inches. Watch the video tutorial and follow the steps advised so you could build and effectively use your own solar water distiller whenever you desire.

    Have you tried using a steel stainless box instead of wood to increase the production of distilled water?

    Did you test the water 4 any chemical impurities? bc salt water is often polluted and distillation is not enough, you would need reverse osmosis to get rid of chemicals like fluoride.

      You might want to study what water distillation is. Glass distillation of water has the highest purification rate. Even better than RO–I have never found an RO system that can remove greater than 98% of contaminates including RO–of course you can buy the extra filter but then it only moves the percentages up to 99%.

    Solar distillers are great. If you can take a good use of solar energy, we can do our best to protect our environment.
