How does the 2800 Waterlovers Water Distiller purify water?
The boiling reservoir is filled with contaminated water or general tap water and is then locked into place and with a touch of a button it starts. At boiling point the water evaporates into steam and travels through the stainless steel coils where the steam is cooled and converted back into liquid form. During this process harmful contaminants are left behind in the boiling reservoir, and pure water passes through the activated coconut charcoal filter as it drips into the glass collection jug. You can drink this water straight away (cooled with distilled water ice cubes) or place the jug into your fridge. Or have plenty distilled water available and have an extra glass jug.
