Faced with the complex problems of pollution, we turned to nature for the wisest and safest solution. Water in its purest form is found in the vapor that rises from the Earth's surface, leaving behind any contaminants it may have collected. This process of evaporation, condensation and precipitation is known as the Hydrologic cycle. Distillation simulates this process, turning ordinary tap water into pure, clean steam vapor which is condensed. Click here for an illustration. This technology effectively removes bacteria, parasites, herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, and a whole list of synthetic chemicals and industrial pollutants.
