What is a water distiller

A water distiller is a process of removing impurities from water. In this process, it converts water into the vapours and then condenses it to the liquid state. Due to the evaporation process, it removes impurities, bacteria, and unnecessary minerals such as fluoride, arsenic, and other minerals. Moreover, the distiller converts the water into vapours due to which the minerals left behind. Later on, the distiller condensed the vapours to the liquid state.

How Water Distiller Works

Just like the natural phenomenon, the water distiller works similarly. Let’s have a look at the working of the water distiller.

  1. The water distiller boils the water and turns it into the water vapours. 
  2. When the water changes to steam, the minerals remain to settle down.
  3. After that, the water distiller condenses the vapours to get the water.

Initially, the water is poured into the boiling chamber, which is attached to the heating element. This heating element will raise the water temperature, which will turn the water to vapours. Moreover, the top of the chamber contains the opening, which will let the vapours cross through it.  The water crosses the chamber’s opening then enters into the condenser. Later on, the condenser will condense the water vapours to the water.

Above all, there is a fan that cools down the vapours into the water droplets. This condensed water will pass through the filter, which will remove the impurities from the water droplets. At last, the active carbon will remove impurities from the distilled water, then you can use it.

In case, you might be asking yourself, how much time will be consumed for water distillation?

Let us explain the time consumed by the water distillation process.

Time is taken by Water distiller:

Water distiller takes 4-6 hours to purify the water. It will clean a gallon of water in 4-6 hours. So, you can easily get a gallon of water by using the water distiller. Most of the water distillation process takes around 4-6 hours to remove minor impurities. Above all, the water distiller is the slow process. Moreover, the water distiller removes impurities from one drop of water at a time due to which it takes a lot of time. Above all, most of the distilled water is automatic and removes the impurities from the water.


You may wanna know the benefits of distilled water.

Benefits of Distilled water

After the distillation of water, you can the clean and pure water for drinking purposes. The water comes from pipelines, which contain impurities that need to be removed. So, the water distiller removes all impurities and metals from water. So, you will get pure water.

The use of distilled water is not limited to drinking. You can use it for cooking and humidifiers. Moreover, you can use it for making baby formula because distilled water is free of bacteria and impurities. Above all, if you are worried about the strain on the window then you should use distilled water to remove such impurities.

 But wait, let me tell you something. 

Although it has many benefits there are some disadvantages as well. Let’s have a look at the disadvantages of the distilled water given below.

Disadvantages of Distilled Water

  • Vapid taste of distilled water is due to the removal of minerals from the water. Because the distilled water is low in oxygen. Moreover,  it is not good in taste but it is safe as compared to tape water.
  • The water distiller removes impurities but very slowly. Moreover, it converts a single drop into vapours at a time due to which this process is time-consuming.


That’s it guys, it is all from my side. I hope you find this article useful for you. Distilled water is safe for drinking and cooking purposes. Moreover, drinking distilled water is not bad for your health but it is a time-consuming process. If you have any queries do ask me in the comment section given below.
