• Distillation Station’s Crystal Distilled Water is the only water that is considered consistently pure as opposed to all other types of water purification processes. Distilled water is the only regulated drinking water. It is free of all impurities and substances. Even tap water can be bottled and sold as “drinking water.”
  • Distillation Station requires customers to enter the store to fill their containers and while proceeding to the checkout counter they usually purchase additional items. However, with an outside vending station, water customers generally fill their bottles and retreat back to their car and leave.
  • Distillation Station not only educates the customers of the health benefits of distilled water by offering brochures and “Best Seller” e-books; it also provides additional revenue through the sale of Distillation Station products such as water bottles, water coolers, water distillers, natural fruit flavorings, chelated mineral additives, liquid vitamins, aminos, etc. These all set Distillation Stations apart from all other drinking water vending companies while adding to the store’s bottom line.
  • Distillation Station is the only water vending operation that provides pure healthy distilled water plus natural fruit flavorings and liquid trace mineral additives, transforming the Crystal Distilled Water into the healthiest water available from any vending machine in the world. It even allows the customer to create their own free “sparkling” water by providing a COGas Station.
  • In addition to all the value-added products, every store owner retains 100% of the bottled water profits! That’s right. No other water vending company relinquishes all the profits. In fact, most vending companies pay the store owners less than 20% of the vended water profits. Yet they have to supply the water, electricity and liability insurance. Most vending machines waste on the average of 4 gallons of flush water for every gallon of filtered water produced. And the store is paying for every gallon that is both filtered and wasted. Distillation Stations waste little to no water in the distillation process.
  • The quality of the vended water from reverse osmosis is directly related to how often the filters are changed. Distilled water is always distilled and its quality is not determined by filters or membranes.

There are tri-fold brochures that explain the health benefits of distilled water and its relationship to health.

Myths and Misconceptions about Distilled Water

For all intents and purposes, distilled water comes closest to the definition of pure drinking water.Controversy always seemed to shroud distilled water through the years. The same old myths and fallacies that were once heard ten to fifteen years ago still continue today. All the misconceptions about distillation and distilled water are grossly misrepresented. The Myths listed below have no basis in fact. The purpose of this article is to set the record straight and lay these false perceptions to rest. Helping clear up these misconceptions about distilled water will greatly benefit the general public.

MYTH #1: DISTILLATION TAKES OUT ALL THE BENEFICIAL MINERALS

This is a statement used countless times, usually from literature from some filter companies trying to tell you, in effect, that their filters take out all the bad contaminants, but leave in the good, beneficial minerals. Fortunately, there are many reputable companies who would never think of making this kind of claim in their ads.

Distillation will kill and remove bacteria, viruses, cysts, as well as heavy metals, radionuclides, organics, inorganics, and particulates. And, yes, it will also remove minerals which will fall under inorganic contaminants. Whether the minerals in water are beneficial or useless has been an ongoing debate. All of our minerals are derived from our food: fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, grains, nuts and dairy products. The minerals in water are so scant that in Boston, Massachusetts, for example, in order to obtain the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), one would have to drink:

Glasses of Tap water

(RDA) Recommended Daily Allowance:

676 (8-oz./236.5 ml)

Calcium

1,848 (8-oz./236.5 ml)

Magnesuim

848 (8-oz./236.5 ml)

Iron

168,960 (8-oz./236.5 ml)

Phosphorus

It seems insane to even think about drinking that much water. Most people cannot even drink the recommended 8 glasses of water a day that is widely advocated by health experts.

When you think of pure water, what definition comes to your mind? It should be just H2O and that’s all. It’s not H2O with minerals and fluoride, because that doesn't fit the description of pure water. For all intents and purposes, distilled water comes closest to the definition of pure drinking water. The process of distillation removes the broadest range of contaminants over any point of use (POU) system.

MYTH #2: DISTILLED WATER LEACHES MINERALS FROM YOUR BODY

What the proponents of this Myth want you to believe is that because distilled water is so pure, drinking it will leach minerals from your body, thereby robbing you of good health and nutrition. There is no basis of fact to document this claim. The national best-seller health and diet book: “Fit for Life II: Living Health” by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond, answers this question in the following excerpt:

Distilled water has an inherent quality. Acting almost like a magnet, it picks up rejected, discarded and unusable minerals and, assisted by the blood and the lymph, carries them to the lungs and kidneys for elimination from the body. The statement that distilled water leaches minerals from the body has no basis in fact. It doesn't leach out minerals that have become part of the cell structure. It can’t and it won’t. It collects only minerals that have already been rejected or excreted by the cells . . . To suggest that distilled water takes up minerals from foods so that the body derives no benefit from them is absurd.”

To overcome this ridiculous myth, Distillation Station makes the #1 liquid minerals in America available at every vending location. Now you can start out with the purest, healthiest water available and simple add back 72 ionized trace minerals.

MYTH #3: LONG CONTINUED DRINKING OF DISTILLED WATER COULD CAUSE DETERIORATION OF THE TEETH

I saw this statement in product literature from a national filter company. Unfortunately, they were maligning the distillation process and distilled water in order to sell a few more filters. This is truly inventive falsification. The negative message this filter company wants to convey is that drinking distilled water (which has removed all traces of fluoride) for long periods will supposedly wreak havoc on your teeth by deteriorating them. Where is the proof? There is none.

MYTH #4: DISTILLED WATER TASTES BLAND OR HAS A ‘FLAT TASTE’

This is probably the most popular myth surrounding distilled water. I have often read this statement from various articles written on water treatment systems. When the articles refer to distillation, they will usually say it removes the minerals that will leave a ‘flat taste.’ I’d be willing to bet that the authors of these types of articles never tasted freshly made distilled water from a home distiller. These types of false remarks misinform consumers so they have preconceived notions about distilled water before they even try it. The falsehoods about distilled water having a ‘flat taste’ can be explained in several ways.

First, in years past, the original distillers did not incorporate any pre- or post-carbon filtration. If you’ve tasted straight distilled water made without the use of any pre- or post-carbon filtration, it might have a drab or ‘off’ taste. The use of carbon filtration with distillation is as follows: Tap or well water is first sent through a pre-filter to help take out chlorine, odors, sediment and other organic contaminants before it reaches the boiling tank of the distiller. After the steam is condensed into distilled water it is finally passed through a carbon post-filter in order to remove any potential gases or Volatile Organic Contaminants (VOC’S) that might have escaped during the boiling process. Not using a post-filter to clean up any volatile gases can produce an ‘off’ taste that may have escaped during the boiling process.

Second, another reason for distilled water having the label of ‘flat taste’ is some people are accustomed to drinking chlorinated or well water high in iron content for a long time. When they are suddenly introduced to distilled water for the first time, it is a shock, noticeable to their taste buds. People who are raised on high iron and inorganic minerals in their well or municipal water source, for instance, would be accustomed to its taste, but when given distilled water, one might say it tastes ‘flat’ since it is free of any foreign substances.

Taste is the number one reason that consumers buy bottled water. It is a $6 billion market. Many consumers are led to believe that you need minerals in water to give it its taste. It is actually oxygen that gives water its taste. Water shouldn’t have a taste or a metallic after bite. Try either a cold or room temperature glass of freshly made distilled water and taste the difference for yourself . . . it’s delicious and refreshing.

A third reason for the ‘flat taste’ theory is buying distilled water in the store. Some distilled water, as virtually all bottled water, is stored in cheap plastic containers. Because distilled water is so clean and has a pH of 7 (neutral) it can leach methyl chloride, a carcinogen, from the plastic container and also give off a plastic taste and odor. Distilled water has been called the universal solvent: it will leach molecules from various substances. Besides glass, consider buying bottles made from Lexan that won’t give off any plastic tastes or odors. Because of its purity and ability to dissolve, distilled water will instantly begin pulling bacteria and decayed food from between teeth and throughout the mouth as you drink it, also creating a bad taste in the mouth. But it isn't from the distilled water.

 MYTH #5: DISTILLED WATER ISN’T EFFECTIVE AGAINST ORGANIC CHEMICALS

VOC’s are organic chemicals that have lower boiling points than tap water, e.g., benzene. When water is boiled to 212ºF/100ºC in the boiling tank, if VOC’s are present, they will vaporize or volatilize (turn into its gaseous form) and rise up with the steam. Many distillers today utilize a volatile gas vent, which is a pin hole in the top of the condensing coils, to vent off any unwanted gases. If the VOC’s do happen to escape this vent, then the carbon post-filter will trap them. Carbon pre-treatment before distillation will remove a majority of chlorine and VOC’s, whereas the post filter is mainly used as a polishing filter. In cases of manual distillers, only post carbon filtration is used and is sufficient in removing VOC’s and unwanted gases.

I have seen this statement made all too often in advertising literature from different segments of the water industry. When they compare their system(s) to distillation, they say that their method removes nearly all the organic contaminants and that distillation is weak on VOC removal. Why? It is because they are telling you a half truth. Distillation without carbon filtration is not as effective in removing VOC’s by itself. Combining carbon filtration with distillation will boost removal rates to greater than 99.9% under normal conditions. In an actual highly spiked test, VOC’s were tested on a DURASTILL distiller system with carbon filtration. The results are shown below:

Durastill home water distillers are also made available through Distillation Station vending locations, greatly adding revenue for retail store owners; in addition to a line of “health related” consumable products.

MYTH #6: DISTILLERS ARE EXPENSIVE TO OPERATE

Home distillers take about 3 kilowatts to make 1 gallon/3.79 liters of distilled water. On the basis of the U.S.A.’s average of 10 cents per kilowatt hour, that’s around 30 cents to make one (1) gallon/3.79 liters. Is 30¢ too much to pay for the purest, healthiest water made fresh in your home? Compared to buying bottled distilled water from the store which can cost you anywhere from 89¢ up to $1.49 per gallon, the answer is clear. Making your own distilled water is cost effective. Why buy the milk when you can have the cow at home? Take an example of buying five (5) gallons of distilled water a week at a $1.00 per gallon average, you’re spending $260.00 per year. If you made your own distilled water at 30¢ per gallon, that would amount to $78.00 per year for electrical costs. That is a savings of 70% on the cost of buying bottled distilled water. Amortization of the initial purchase of the distiller can be made in a short time.

Maintenance of a Durastill distiller involves changing pre-filters and/or post-filters (left photo) about every 6-12 months and periodically draining out the residue left over from the boiling process. If there is a heavy scale build-up accumulating in the boiling tank, Distillation Station has boiling tank cleaning agents available which simply dissolve any mineral buildup, allowing it to be easily drained from the tank.. The two most popular cleaners are citric acid (right photo) and sulfuric acid (a stronger acid), recommended to soften and loosen up the scale.

CONCLUSION

It’s time to set the record straight about distilled water myths. There is a definite need for the home water distiller market in the industry and consumers have a right to know the correct facts concerning distilled water. Here are some important points to remember:

Distillation, when combined with carbon filtration, will kill and remove virtually 100% of bacteria, viruses, cysts, and will remove heavy metals, inorganics; including minerals, radionuclides, particulates, and organics, including VOC’s.

Over 95% of our minerals come from our food and less than 5% from drinking water. You would practically have to drown yourself by drinking it to get the RDA of any beneficial minerals. For this reason and for value-added we provide the purest, most complete liquid minerals available.

Pure water refers to water that is H20, and that’s it! It’s not H2O with calcium, iron, fluoride, etc. Distilled water comes the closest to this definition. Distilled water will not leach minerals from your body. There has never been any documented evidence to prove this claim true. It is a lie told by the promoters of water filters and alkaline water machines to disparage the purest and healthiest water available.

Long-term drinking of distilled water is not deleterious to your teeth. Distilled water does not taste ‘bland’ or ‘flat.’ Would hundreds of thousands of people worldwide be drinking it every day if it didn't taste good?

Distillation Station “Durastill” Water Distillers do not use much electricity and will make one (1) gallon/3.79 liters for roughly 30¢. Compared to bottled distilled water at around $1.00 or more per gallon, the savings are tremendous year after year.

Hopefully, the facts I've presented to expel the Myths about distilled water will help the industry present distillation in its true light. There is an absolute need for various POU water treatment systems for the home market based on the needs of the consumer. Distillation is definitely the best process and Distillation Station is the best source for pure water and healthy additions.

As you can see, these test results were spiked tremendously beyond the EPA limits to show how the distiller with carbon filtration can remove an extreme amount of contaminants. Today, carbon filtration is standard with all home distillation systems on the market, making it a complete system by removing a wider range of contaminants, including VOC’s.

Durastill home water distillers are also made available through Distillation Station vending locations, greatly adding revenue for retail store owners; in addition to a line of “health related” consumable products.

 Forbes featured an Associated Press report on the bottled water market that said “water is a hot commodity” and it is poised to get even hotter. According to the article, beverage industry trade journal Beverage Digest reported that both plain and “enhanced water” is set to drive nearly one-third of the beverage industries growth in the coming year.

In 2011, total bottled water sales in the U.S. hit 9.1 billion gallons- 29.2 gallons of bottled water/person, according to Beverage Marketing Corp. sales figures.

The 2011 numbers are the highest total volume of bottled water ever sold in the U.S., and also the highest per-person volume.

Indeed, bottled water sales aren’t just growing — it’s fair to say they’re booming. Volume increased by 4.1 percent in 2011 — five times as fast as the 0.9 percent growth in the sales of beverages overall, according to Beverage Marketing. Bottled water sales, in fact, are growing twice as fast as the economy itself.

Americans are drinking more bottled water because they find it convenient, appealing and also healthy,” says Gary Hemphill, who is managing director for information services at Beverage Marketing, and a longtime observer of bottled water and beverage sales in the U.S. and around the world.

In addition to providing the most superior quality water to the general public, Aquamedia's Distillation Stations provide this water without contributing to the pollution of our environment through the discarding of plastic water bottles of which amount to 2.7 tons of plastic annually, which requires 17.6 million barrels of oil to produce. That amounts to enough gasoline to power over one million automobiles for over a year. These figures are not reflecting the transportation costs on delivering the water to the retailers or home and business deliveries.

It has been established that Aquamedia's Distillation Station contributes to the reduction of plastic water bottle waste, but how is Distillation Station any different or superior to any of the other bottle water vending machine companies and their products?

Most vending machines waste on the average of 4 gallons of flush water for every gallon of filtered water produced and the store is paying for every gallon that is both wasted and filtered. Aquamedia's Distillation Stationswaste little to no water in the distillation process.

    • The quality of the vended water from reverse osmosis is directly related to how often the filters are changed. Distilled water is always distilled and its quality is not determined by filters or membranes.

    Why sell Aquamedia's Crystal Distilled water and not reverse osmosis?

    Many people are becoming aware of the relationship between drinking pure, clean water and health. Also it has been reported over the last several years that much of the “drinking water” sold today has been found to contain a variety of contaminants. Drinking water regulations only require that the water meets the specifications set down by the “Clean Water Act” of 1977, which has set maximum allowable levels of only 128 priority pollutants (chemicals known to cause cancer in humans). Yet, since 1977 there have been well over 100,000 chemicals added to our environment, with an additional 1000 added annually. Reverse osmosis and carbon filters do not remove everything from the water and require intermittent testing to determine when the filters are loaded and need replacing. Unlike other forms of water purification, distilled water is consistently pure, due to the distillation process: the water is boiled, killing bacteria, and cysts, the steam is condensed back into water, leaving behind, solids, toxins, chemicals and other pollutants in the boiling tank where they are occasionally removed by opening a drain valve.

    Customers can buy consistently pure, healthy water with confidence, knowing it is Crystal Distilled water from a Distillation Station.

    In addition, many people are concerned about water shortages and preventing or curbing waste. The distillation process does not waste water, whereas reverse osmosis wastes 5-6 gallons of water to produce a single gallon of treated RO water. The RO systems require water to flush the collected impurities from the surface of the RO membrane down the drain. So for the reasons of inconsistent purity and wasted water, the choice is clear... Distillation Station's Crystal Distilledwater.
