A water distiller boils the water then condenses the
steam, leaving impurities behind. Distillation removes
most contaminants, including bacteria and protozoan
cysts. It won't remove volatile organic compounds such
as THMs unless it is combined with a carbon filter.
A distillation system is expensive to buy and run
as it uses quite a bit of electricity. It's also slow
and takes up a lot of room on your bench.
