legion Posted September 28, 2022 Share Posted September 28, 2022 @TheConsultant Yes....Distilled water does not conduct electricity. l checked my first jug with a multi-meter and there was no circuit. l was at first surprised by this but then remembered back when vehicle batteries were supplied 'dry'....and before use they needed filling with distilled water. (not so now with modern un-servicable batteries) This is to 'isolate' each individual battery plate so it can function as designed. So it's the 'impurities' in the water that conducts electricity - salt water being extremely conductive. The impurities make / complete any given circuit of electrical charge. Water doesn't have a charge. But impure water carries any given charge, l drink distilled water for it clean-ness - no yucky gacky shite.... l don't drink it because it does not conduct electricity. As soon as it enters the body it becomes 'impure'....no ? As soon as it enters the stomach it mixes with digestive juices and other organic material which will then conduct electrical charges. Once within the body it will behave electrically exactly the same as any ordinary impure water. Hence - the only thing your doing by drinking distilled water is making sure you're not ingesting some unknown undesirable substance...? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
