I've ordered this water distiller: White Stainless Steel Water Distiller with 4L Glass Collection Jug (makewaterpure.co.uk)

See how it goes. Maybe I'll try the reverse osmosis option too. Anyone one with a reverse osmosis system, how much are you spending on filters?

I've been drinking Highland Spring for years, supposed to come from organic land. Please don't tell me it's from some random tap! :-)

What you all doing for water at the moment?

Hey, we're using a Wrekin water filter (this one Wrekin water). Is this better or worse than a distiller?

I might have said this already, but was watching a guys video the other night he thinks they are fluoridating the water right now in the south east, not starting next year.

 

He said he feels passive and foggy, disinterested etc. 

Wouldn't surprise me to find out its been going much longer because I  know its done in parts of northern England already..

My water distiller was redelivered yesterday, earlier than expected. I've been reading the instructions :-)

 

 

If you are in and area where you have a water supply I can see the need for a water filter ,however in my case we are on tank water from the roof and bore water from the ground ,we drink both unfiltered and have been for nearly 30 years admittedly the water would contain bird, bat,frog , snake and possum shit ,but hey you have to keep your immune system primed some how, besides I don't think that is as bad as all the chemicals that are in water supply in suburban and city areas . When we go away we take our own water with us as I generally can't drink other water, as the glass comes up to my mouth I can just  smell the chemicals and god knows how many humans it has already passed through before landing in my glass  .

So good luck with your purchase

 

 

While writing this I've had a revelation ,I always wondered why I was full of shit ,well now I know ,it's the water

That's great you've got your own water like that Peter. No water bills, well, not from water company. Was the bore hole already drilled when you came onto your land? I've heard it can be very expensive to drill them. I suppose any bits from your roof water will settle in the bottom of the tank? You have a filter going into the tank?

 

Sounds like you body is used to the water from your land now. 

 

You're not full of shit Peter! Well, not much :-o :-D

 

Thanks, I used the filter once yesterday, said to do one cycle to clean the machine out first. There was a slimy film/scum left in the bottom of the distiller :-s

No there isn't a filter anywhere, the bore was already in and I had the water tested before I purchased the house ,it's only on 1 &1/2 acres of land but that's enough now.

On the farm I used to have I sunk a bore and your right ,expensive then and who knows what it costs now

Peter, I'm concerned you're ingesting poo & leaves, is there no mesh over the drain pipe/guttering at least?

@BlueSky

How is this distiller ? I've been meaning to get one for years, so let me know how this one works out as it looks better quality than the others I've eyed up.

Yeah, I'm pleased with the quality. Added the glass nozzle as well to what was in the link. It was shipped from here, only took a few days, that was the main thing that put me off the ones on Ebay, sellers info was a Chinese address. 

 

I've got a second load brewing atm :-). The taste is different from the mineral water I've been drinking, but nothing strange. 

 

Keep us updated if you do decide to get one.
