Despite efforts by the Government to provide clean and drinkable water and consequently reduce water borne diseases in Nigeria, increasing reported and unreported cases of cholera and other water-borne diseases in Nigeria have continued unabated. This is indicative of the fact that a larger part of the Nigerian populace are ignorant of ways to provide clean drinkable water at homes without relying on the Government. The good news is that it is indeed very possible and cheap to produce home-made distilled water which has been clinically proven to be one of the healthiest types of water for domestic consumption.

The technology for distilled water production is very simple, the chemistry is unique and interesting and the whole setup is very cheap. If Nigerians can apply this technology at home and start producing distilled water for domestic uses which I believe they can, cases of cholera and other water-borne diseases will become history even in the remotest part of the country. The Nigerian Government will save billions of Naira spent on cholera and other water-borne disease treatment and prevention.
 

What is Distilled Water?


Before I show you the home-made water distilling technology which produces the perfectly clean water, it is necessary that you understand what distilled water is all about. Chemistry defines distilled water as condensed water which existed as boiling water vapour. Ordinary water from streams, tap, bore-holes or rain contain different degrees of dissolved chemical, physical or biological impurities.
 
When you boil this water, it evaporates and leaves behind these impurities. If these water vapour is collected and cooled, what you have got is a pure H2O which is almost 99% pure. This is your distilled water and it is generally recommended by health and other regulatory authorities as one of the safest waters for drinking and other domestic applications.

 

The Technology of Distilled Water


The process of boiling water in a clean closed system and collecting the vapour which condenses without escaping describes the water distillation technology. The water vapour is channeled into another clean closed system to avoid contamination where it is cooled and packaged. I know that almost every day you boil water at home for many purposes. But have you thought about ways to prevent or capture these water vapour from escaping which gives you pure distilled water? This diagram below can help explain the tech process better.

Uses of Distilled Water


The water you obtained from this technology is free of dissolved impurities. These impurities may be physical, biological or chemical in nature. Your home-made distilled water contains no dissolved minerals unlike normal rain or tap water. This quality makes distilled water very active in absorbing toxic compounds from its environment. Therefore, occasional drinking of well packaged distilled water helps to detoxify the body and keep your system fresh. However when distilled water is exposed regularly to the atmosphere, it absorbs carbon dioxide to become acidic.
 
Distilled water is ideal for other domestic uses like washing since it is a good example of soft water. It leathers easily with soaps and detergents to give you the best washing experience. In laboratories and industries where high water purity is required for production, distilled water is the best form of water.

The applications of distilled is very vast and holds great opportunities to raise good businesses as it is widely used in chemical and allied industries. Fortunately, this is what you can easily produce at home with a simple but effective technology.
