Distilled Water Supplies - About Us
What is Distilled Water?
Distilled water is water that has had nearly all of its impurities removed through distillation. Distillation involves boiling the water until it only the pure water evaporates (leaving the impurities behind) and then condensing the pure steam back into a clean container.
How is Distilled Water made?
Our Distilled Water is made using one of our 3 large stainless steel distillers that run almost continuously. The "feed" water is filtered three times and deionised before entering the distillation machine tank. Upon entering the Distillers, the water is boiled and the steam is then cooled, collected, filtered a fourth time with deionisation resin and bottled.
How Pure is Distilled Water?
Purity is dependent on many factors including the purity of the source water, ambient outdoor temperature etc. but we never exceed 2 parts-per-million. Our average purity is just 1ppm or better i.e. water that is 99.9999% pure
Do you use recycled bottles/drums?
Whilst this would reduce our costs, we do NOT use recycled containers. No matter how many times they have been washed out, there would be residue from the previous contents and even chlorine from the cleaning water! All of our bottles and drums are brand new, food-grade HDPE.
How should I store Distilled Water?
Distilled Water has the propensity to absorb Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere and will gradually become acidic over time if left in an open container. For this reason, Distilled Water should always be kept in sealed bottles/containers. Distilled water should not be stored in direct sunlight or temperatures above 25 degrees - this is to reduce the likelyhood of any chemicals in the plastic bottles from leaching into the water.
