Is Drinking Distilled Water Safe?

Myths About Distilled Water

There are many myths floating around about the safety of drinking distilled water.  Some believe it is too acidic and others think it is devoid of useful minerals.  Some think distilled water doesn’t taste good, while others think the only use of distilled water is to keep the iron from getting clogged with minerals deposits.  Our distilled water is 99.9% pure.  Nearly all of the toxins, biological contaminants and chemical contaminants are removed during the distillation process.  It is the simplicity of distillation, mimicking the hydrologic cycle, that makes is so effective.  Regarding minerals, our bodies rely on fresh fruits and vegetables for mineral requirements.  Minerals in water are poorly absorbed as they are inorganic and the body must work to eliminate the majority of them.

Distilled Water pH is around 7.0 – Neutral

With rare exception, freshly distilled water has a pH very near neutral, which is 7.0 on the pH scale.  Solutions with a pH below 7.0 are considered to be acids and solutions with a pH above 7.0 are considered to be bases or alkaline.  Claims made online or anywhere else, that distilled water is very acidic are simply not true. This can be easily proven using pH test paper or a pH meter. It is true that when distilled water has been sitting around in an open container for a long period of time, that it will absorb some of the carbon dioxide from our atmosphere. This forms a very weak carbonic acid and will drop the pH slightly below its normal reading.

Distilled Water is Not Acidic

Claims made online about distilled water being acidic or acidic water causing cancers are not based on scientific facts.  The idea that drinking alkaline water will somehow get rid of cancer is untrue.  It is much more likely that distilling tap water will remove carcinogenic compounds from the water.  Your body does an excellent job of managing itself and the pH of all parts of the body.  The various organs of a healthy body do an excellent job of managing the pH of all parts of the body.  By drinking clean, toxin free, distilled water, you are providing your body with the best water possible.

Distilled Water Tastes Great

Some say the distilled water doesn’t taste good.  People who say this are likely tasting the plastic bottle in which it is stored.  Our distillers collect water in a glass jar to preserve the pure taste.  Every distiller made in our factory is tested before we ship it out.  Our machines use both filtration to remove VOC’s and distillation.  AquaNui distillers provide water that is clear and refreshing, without odor or bad taste.

Distilled Water Removes Toxins

Distilled water does not contain minerals.  It is true that minerals are removed with the toxins and other unwanted parts of tap or well water through the distillation process.  However, humans get their minerals through food, not water.  One would have to drink over a hundred glasses of water a day to get the required amount of minerals needed to survive.  We recommend that drinking distilled water be part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.  If food does not provide enough minerals, supplementation may be recommended by your doctor.

“Distilled water is the world’s best and purest water!”  Dr. Paul C. Bragg & Dr. Patricia Bragg, Water – The Shocking Truth

Distilled Water is Good for You

Some ask, “is drinking distilled water good for you”?  Our answer is a resounding yes!  Distilled water is pure water plain and simple.  The health benefits of drinking distilled water are many.  Imagine all of the bad chemicals that never get into your body.  Think of all the potential biological organisms that need not be introduced into your digestive tract.  Not all contaminants are made-made either.  Some enter into the water supply via erosion.  Avoid anything bad in tap water by distilling it first.  It is both healthy and refreshing.

“If you decide on bottled water, make sure it’s distilled, (however), in the long run you’ll save money if you clean your water at home.” Dr. Robert D. Willix, Jr., M.D., Maximum Health

Distilled Water is Safe To Drink

There are no dangers associated with drinking distilled water.  It is perfectly safe to drink distilled water because it is natural.  There’s nothing more normal than harnessing the power of evaporation and condensation.  Distilled water is used in many kinds of machines as a way to deter scale and buildup.  It is also useful to remove foreign bodies.  For example, CPAP machines, humidors, and automotive cooling systems and engines all use distilled water.  Embassies and navy ships use distilled water for drinking.  If the purpose of distilled water is to keep contaminants out and to make sure there’s no corrosion or buildup, it would make sense that this is indeed the best kind of water for drinking.

Water Distillation in Times of Disaster

Recently, a friend of mine invited me over to see his brand new video game, Fallout 4, the highly anticipated next chapter in the Fallout saga. For those of you who may not know, Fallout is set in a post-apocalyptic world, where you, as the main player, have survived a nuclear apocalypse by living in a large underground vault. As you emerge from the vault, and make your way across the wastelands, water distillers become extremely important to your survival. In the game, you distill water for both drinking and as a means of making money. Since I am an advocate of drinking distilled water, my friend wanted me to see how important it is in the game.

While Fallout 4 is only a game based on survival, we face similar challenges in the real world. Our water quality is being threatened by biological, chemical and other types of contamination. Some of this contamination is manmade, but other kinds are a result of natural disasters or natural processes. For example, when severe weather strikes, sewer mains can break or overflow causing your home’s water to become undrinkable. Infrastructure can be disabled. What do you do if you can’t drink water from your faucet? Do you go to the grocery store to get bottled water, only to find that the shelves are empty? Do you try using a pitcher with a simple carbon filter only to find out that it can’t remove dangerous toxins?

By owning a water distiller, you can rest assured that your distilled drinking water is safe. You will have peace of mind knowing that you can distill your tap water into the safest, purest water possible for you and your family. By making your own distilled water, you are able to take care of yourself and perhaps even some of your neighbors. This is good for you and your community. FEMA, the Red Cross and other organizations work tirelessly making sure that everyone has clean water among other things. I am not suggesting you should charge for water like in Fallout 4, but being able to offer purified drinking water to others is one way a community can support each other. If everyone owns a distiller then disaster relief can focus on food or other necessities, as well as cleanup. This may be another reason to consider getting a larger distiller, or at least one with a larger storage tank. It’s a relief to have distilled water on hand, especially in cases where the power might go out. At AquaNui, we’ve designed our distillers so that even if you typically use a pump, you can always get water out of your storage tank.

When disaster struck the Fukushima plant in Japan of 2011, we had some radioactive contaminants tested by the University of Nebraska. Of those tested, we had very successful removal rates! If you remember, the tsunami heavily damaged the water cooling tanks and as a result millions of gallons of water was radioactively contaminated. Cleanup is still going on today because of the radiation’s effect on local streams and ground water, but also in the ocean itself. Our distillers showed a 99.8% reduction of Cesium, 89.6% reduction of Iodine and 99.5% reduction of Uranium. These are amazing results compared to other forms of water purification.

So whether you’re faced with a natural disaster or a man-made one, our distillers will help keep your family safe. More importantly, consider our distillers for your daily water needs now. Make sure that your family’s cooking and drinking water is consistently pure! In good times and in bad, buying an AquaNui home water distiller will provide you with peace of mind no matter what life throws at you.
