Why Is Drinking Pure Water So Important?


August is National Water Quality Month

As you may know, August is National Water Quality Month.  National Water Quality Month was founded years ago to educate consumers about the importance of clean water.  Water, especially PURE water, is so important not only to our wellbeing but our very existence!  We should celebrate every time we take a swallow of this most precious liquid because it shapes the world in which we live in almost every possible way.  The purer the water, the better your life!

Pure water IS life!  What are scientists searching for when they look to outer space for a potential planet for humanity.  You’ve guessed it. WATER! We need water to support life. Thank goodness it is recyclable and is sufficient for our current needs, thanks to municipal water treatment and point of use water purification systems such as distillation. Hopefully, as the population of our planet grows, we will continue to have enough water for all our needs.

So, as we consider our water supplies, now and in the future, we should remember to do what we can to conserve water in quantity and preserve its purity. For example, when using household chemicals in our everyday lives, such as personal care products, we should take care not to waste them and dispose of them properly. These products include all of our household cleaners and prescription drugs, as well as chemicals for our lawns and gardens, and paints and finishes.  Always read and follow the instructions for safe use and disposal. Proper disposal is for your safety and safety of animals and plants nearby.

We also need to consider the long-term security of the water we consume and use for other purposes. Remember, water is both unique and indispensable, and since we all live downhill from each other, we must do all we can to prevent water contamination.  Owners of such businesses must be cautious and consider the impact of their day-to-day operations on the environment around them as well.

The question remains, however, who can you depend on to ensure that the water you and your family drinks is safe?  The answer is YOURSELF.  While governmental agencies set up minimum standards for some of the most common substances present in our public water supply, these standards only apply to about half the people in the United States and, unfortunately, are poorly enforced. We must assume the safety of our water as a personal responsibility.

So, where do you start?  Well, using our senses of smell and taste certainly is not enough to ensure even minimum safety.  So let’s start with a very simple household water test that helps to rule out most of the inorganic contaminants. It is a TDS (total dissolved solids) test.  The basis for this simple test is that inorganic solids, such as metals, acids, and salts, conduct an electrical current.  Tap water will sometimes measure very high in these total-dissolved-solids, telling us that there are contaminants such as arsenic, lead, nitrates, or hardness minerals present in the water.  Even though is this is a big step in the right direction; it should not be considered a complete water safety test. Why? First of all, there is no such “complete” test available – we can only guess at the contaminants present in water and test for those.  Secondly, this does not differentiate the inorganic contaminants and does not detect the presence of organic chemicals such as solvents and pesticides, or biological contaminants such as bacteria, cysts, and viruses. For complete water testing, one needs further testing, preferably by an EPA certified laboratory.

https://watercheck.com  (800) 458-3330) is one such lab, offering some fairly basic to more complex testing for tap or well water, and you can accomplish that testing on your own. Again, we can never be sure what’s in a water source at any given time.  That’s why distillation is so important. This process removes the broadest range of contaminants possible.  Here at AquaNui, we’ve had 3rd party lab tests conducted on our distillation systems and the results have been outstanding.

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.

“The only type of water that seems to be fit for consumption is distilled water…Distillation is the single most effective method of water purification.” Peter A. Lodewick, M.D., A Diabetic Doctor Looks at Diabetes

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 Quality in a Drought

The Great California Drought: It’s been all over the news lately that California is getting into more and more trouble with the continuing drought and dwindling water supply. Not enough people are conserving it, crops need it and enforcing conservation is extremely difficult. While everyone is concerned about the amount of water being used, few people think about the quality of water being used.
During a drought, water levels are low because much of the water has been evaporated and not replenished. The water that is available will be more concentrated with contaminants. During these times, we can expect to see an increase in nitrates, organic and inorganic minerals, bacteria, pesticides and herbicides in the remaining water supply.
water treatment picIn addition, California’s municipal water treatment facilities will be pressed to treat and recycle the remaining available drinking water supply at a faster rate, which will adversely affect the quality of water. Many municipal water supplies will add additional chlorinate to the water to kill bacteria. This means it is very likely that Californians will be getting more chlorine in tap water then they are accustomed to.
What does this mean for the water conscious home consumer? Bottled water is an option. However, the consumer should be made aware that bottled water, if treated or filtered at all, is often of variable quality and will likely be of lesser quality in a drought when the available water inputs are of lesser quality. In addition, the process of bottling and filtering water is extremely wasteful for our resources and the environment. Finally, the cost of bottled water can quickly add up.
dirty-filtersThere are several options available for environmentally and cost conscious consumers. Home treatment systems known as ‘point of use’ POU systems for drinking water purification are a common option. These include barrier treatment methods such as ‘RO’ reverse osmosis, filtration and distillation. As with bottled water, RO systems are very inefficient and waste water. Also, with the increase in contamination, filters are not only going to deteriorate faster and need to be replaced more often, but their initial effectiveness will be lower. This can become especially expensive for RO systems which require regular replacement filters.
A sensible alternative are distillation POU systems. Distillation systems offer a high quality, eco-friendly and cost-conscious option. A quality U.S. made distiller will consistently remove 99.9+% of water contaminants without wasting a lot of water. Bacteria is killed in the boiling process and practically all of the contaminants are removed when the water becomes vapor and then re-condenses, leaving fresh, pure water for you and your family to drink.
