THE BASICS: KNOW THE RED CROSS RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TREATING WATER IN AN EMERGENCY

The above link is to free e-book that was sent to me via email on a webinar event.  I missed the webinar but the e-book had some information in it that would be good to share.  How long that link is active I'm not sure.  It was written by a gentleman named Glen Meder.  I don't know him but apparently he makes this product:

Survival still

I started looking at this and thought it was a pretty neat little item to have 'just in case'....until I saw the price tag!  Personally I don't feel it's worth nearly $300 unless I'm missing something critical.  So I set out to find easier and more inexpensive ways to distill water.










These are just to provide some ideas.

Isn't it amazing the similarities of water distillation to an alcohol still? The biggest difference is the temp that you heat your primary.

Drinking Only distilled water can deprive you needed minerals. I would caution drinking it 100% of the time. There's a reason RO systems mix filtered with unfiltered water so that taste and minerals can be reintroduced.

I'm playing with ideas regarding a solar still. Nothing in production yet but several ideas.

Biggest problem with solar distillers is production. They are easy to make, work great, but it is hard to produce enough water for even two people without the distillers becoming huge.
