Water distillation is one of the best ways to filter water. In fact, it can remove most contaminants found in water. The only contaminants that it cannot remove are the ones that have a lower boiling point than water.
Anyway, this review will cover the Pure Water Mini-Classic Counter Top Distiller. We will cover the features, what we like, what we don’t like, and then give our final verdict.
I’ll give you a hint. We recommend purchasing this system, but only for the right person. Read on to find out why.
Water distillers aren’t a feature rich type of system. However, they do have enough features that we can list out the important ones. Here is a short list of those features:
What We Like
We have a lot of different things that we like about this system. First, it can make distilled water at a relatively fast pace (0.8 gallons/3.5 hours). That rate might sound slow, but in the world of water distillers it is actually slightly faster than normal.
The power usage is actually pretty low. You can expect each gallon of water to cost about $1 in electricity. The actual price will vary based on your electricity costs.
Even if the water costs more money, the distilled water has no contact with plastic. Something that you can’t say about the distilled water you purchase at the grocery store. This is one important factor that you should keep in mind before skipping over this purchase.
Anyway, Pure Water has a 15 year warranty for the stainless steel on the product. Honestly, I would be surprised if you encountered any issues with the stainless steel within 15 years. Stainless steel is just such a durable metal that it doesn’t have those type of issues. The electrical components might pose more issues because water and electricity are a bad combination. They give you a 2 year warranty on the electrical components.
Also, this system is made in the USA. We really like that and it’s not something that we see very often.
Finally, the maintenance on this system is pretty much non-existent. You only have to clean out the sediment from the bottom of the condensing unit every month and that’s it. Super easy.
What We Don’t Like
There really isn’t much that we don’t like. The only big complaint we have is the price. That is somewhat expected because of the high quality of the machine (it’s made in America) and the warranty.
Other than that there isn’t anything that we don’t like.
Frequently Asked Questions
All in all, this is an excellent water distiller. We recommend it assuming you have a bigger budget.
