Quality Pure Water Simply!
Distillation is the most effective method of water purification. Distillation occurs when water is brought to 212 degrees, boiled, thus killing bacteria and viruses, then vaporized to separate out minerals, lead, bacteria, nitrates and other contaminants. The vapor is then condensed back into liquid water that is 99.9 percent pure. Distillers eliminate the need and inconvenience of buying bottled water, and help maximize the life of water-using appliances such as coffee makers, steam irons and humidifiers by preventing mineral build-up.
The WaterWise Distiller is portable and lightweight, making it ideal for home use or for travel where public water systems are unreliable. It removes cryptosporidium, an infectious parasite that can cause diarrhea, vomiting, fever, prolonged cholera-like illness and possible death. The distiller produces a gallon of distilled water in six hours at a fraction of the cost of buying bottled water. It automatically shuts off when finished, so you can distill water overnight or while at work.
Enjoy the incredibly refreshing taste and convenience of purified water with your own WaterWiseª Distiller. Make it fresh each day. Makes coffee, tea, juices, and soups delicious. Use distilled water when you prepare vegetables, fruits, organic foods and even baby formula. Cleaner, healthier, better tasting water...You know you deserve the best!
The WaterWise is convenient...Costs less than bottled water.
How the WaterWise Distiller Works:
- Tap water is heated to 212 degrees F in the boiling chamber, killing bacteria, virus, cysts and protozoan that may be present.
- Steam rises into the cooling coil, while volatile gasses (VOCs), vent off through through a special vent in condensing coil.
- Steam rises into the cooling coil, Fan forced air, cools the cooling coil, causing the water vapor to condense back to a liquid.
- The dissolved solids, salts and other contaminants are left behind in the stainless still pot, easily cleaned before next use.
- Purified water percolates out through the cooling coil then through a carbon polishing filter into the 1 gallon storage container. The WaterWise distiller produces one liter on of pure, refreshing water per hour. Six gallons per day.
Features of the WaterWise Drinking Water Distiller:
The WaterWise Distiller turns tap water to steam, leaving most impurities behind.The steam is then condensed back into high quality water for your use.Removes up to 99% of most tap water contaminants.Eliminates the inconvenience and expense of buying bottled water and the disposal of plastic containers.Distilled water increases the life of water-using appliances such as coffee makers, steam irons and humidifiers by preventing mineral build-up.Distilled water eliminates mineral build up and residue when used in humidifiers.No plumbing required (portable).Convenient and easy to use, just fill with one gallon of tap water and plug into an outlet. (110 volts)Ideal for colloidal research, drinking water, coffee, tea, juices, vegetables, soups and baby formulas, steam irons, car batteries, humidifiers, plants, photo processing, contact lenses.Collection-storage bottle is made of a non-leaching plastic and includes tight fitting cap to eliminate absorption of taste and odor into the distilled water.Produces one liter of purified distilled water per 6 hour and shuts off automatically when cycle is finished, so you can make water over night or while at work.Carbon filter at end of process polishes the water before it enters the collection-storage bottle. (Note: It is advised that a larger carbon filter such as a britta pitcher filter be used to filter distilled water for colloidal research. The reason is; VOCs may still be present and the carbon filter included may not sufficently remove them, VOCs will interfere with especially if present during colloidal silver production).
The WaterWise Distiller removes up to 99% of most tap water contaminants, including:
lead, nitrates, bacteria, sodium, chlorine, turbidity, cysts (protozoan), arsenic, barium, mercury, and many more. It's one of the purest forms of water you can give your family.
May 19, 1998: Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) has completed the testing and certification and WaterWise is now Classified under UL's NEW Drinking Water Treatment Unit (DWTU) Certification program. UL Classified WaterWise System's Countertop Distillation Unit to ANSI/NSF 62. Unit was evaluated at UL's facility where UL conducts extraction and analytical testing, specific contaminant reduction verification testing, and pressure testing.
Special note: Health risks involved with VOC's
UL verified 11 performance claims for WaterWise countertop drinking water distiller unit using ANSI/NSF 62, Drinking Water Distillation Systems. The claims included the reduction of arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, copper, fluoride, lead, mercury, nitrate, selenium and microbiologicals. Intended for residential use, the product treats up to one gallon of water at a time. WaterWise Systems' distillers are also certified for electrical safety.
UL's New program is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and accepted by all the regulatory jurisdictions that require special recognition: California, Iowa, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, and the city of Los Angeles.
VOCs may damage the nervous, reproductive, and immune systems. Some VOC's are "endocrine impostors" that mimic hormones "triggering biological reactions that wreak havoc in the brain, and in the immune and reproductive systems" (Water Systems News & Home Water Report). What is especially alarming is that, in many cases, it is not just one VOC at a time that is in tap water. According to the Environmental Working group, consumers are routinely exposed to multiple VOC's in one glass of tap water. Infants and children are especially at risk because "they drink more water per pound of body weight than adults, and they're still growing, which makes them particularly vulnerable to health risks posed by exposure to these toxic substances," according to David Rall, Ph.D., director of PSR's (Physicians for Social Responsibility) Science and Environmental Health Policy Project.

How long do the carbon filters last? It depends on your usage. Under normal conditions, the filter will last 2-3 months. Your results may vary... Generally you will know when it is time to change the filter when there is a taste change in the water. Or if used with The Colloid Master Model 777, during the water test turns the green light goes off above setting 2.
