When I first started using this distiller, I thought there was a slightly acrid taste to the water, even with the carbon filter. Eventually I figured out what was wrong. I live in an area where the tap water has a very high mineral content. The body of the distiller is essentially an electric kettle that holds a gallon of water. It shuts off automatically when the water boils off. But the mineral gunk left over gets burned onto the bottom and the sides of the "kettle", and that's what was causing the slightly off taste. By setting a timer so that I remember to shut off the distiller before the last few ounces of water boil away, I've been able to improve the taste of the water, as well as make de-scaling the kettle a less frequent task. (Starting from cold tap water, it takes about 6 hours to distill a gallon of water, so I shut it off at about 5 1/2 hours.) Curiously, the little button on the front of the distiller body is only an "ON" button; to manually turn the distiller off, you have to pull the power plug.
Another slight drawback to this product is that the cooling fan is pretty loud. I run the distiller in a downstairs utility room, so it doesn't bother me at all, but you wouldn't want to be in the same room with it when it's running.
The three-years-later review:
This is an update and some notes after three years of using this distiller:
1. It works as well as the first time I used it. This is a solid piece of work.
2. It's easier to keep clean if you rinse it well every two or three gallons, and give it a few seconds worth of a scrub. The deposits that build up on it come right off if you just pour a water/vinegar mix into it and let it sit a while. Scrubbing a little helps. This thing is not hard to keep clean, but it helps to be regular with the maintenance. Besides, the deposits don't seem to affect the water anyway. I've never let them build up really thick though. Also, if you catch it before it's boiled all the way down, there are no deposits at all.
3. You can make your own LCD-screen and CD/DVD cleaner with this: Mix rubbing alcohol (I use the 91%) with triple-distilled water, half and half. Pour it on to an LCD and/or CD-safe cleaning cloth, like one of those little microfiber lens cloths, and it works very well. It works as well as the commercial stuff, and is infinitely cheaper. Using the distilled water rather than tap water means it won't leave the white streaks on the screen as it dries.
4. I haven't used the little charcoal filter packs in years now. Not sure what that info is good for, but everything works just fine without it.
5. The collection bottle is a bit challenging to keep clean because of its shape, and we use a bottle brush to clean it.Read more ›
My water is very hard (mostly calcium) and has chloramines added. I keep several aquariums (55, 30, & 20 gallons), so I am sensitive to the water quality of any device.
I purchased this device because my years old (recently serviced) reverse osmosis rental unit was putting out about 5 ppm of nitrates. My tap water has about 15 ppm of nitrates. The water that this distiller produces measures 0 ppm nitrates (with my test strips) so I am very happy, my problem is solved.
I did notice a slight metallic taste to the first two gallons that I made with tap water. I then tried an experiment, and used water from my 'PUR 3 stage faucet filter' to fill this thing and the 'funny' taste was gone. I researched this a little and mostly discovered that the distiller is not able to remove all of the VOCs (gases in this case). Pre and post filtering with activated carbon was recommended. I would have to agree. This morning I tasted some water from the distiller along side some of the reverse osmosis unit water, and, guess what? The RO water tastes a little 'funny', the distilled water tasted great.
For the aquarium water, I add back in some essential minerals, the fish require these to live. I experimented with the distilled water and added back in a few commonly available minerals (baking soda, potassium chloride, magnesium sulfate, and citric acid) in small amounts (varying, about < 200 mg /liter of each) and was able to get the best tasting water that I have ever encountered.Read more ›
