Have you ever tasted absolutely pure water?
Most tap water contains a mix of pollutants. Even bottled and filtered waters contain impurities.
And the problem is, if you do not filter them out before you drink your water, your body ends up trying to do the filtering.
The only guaranteed way to get the absolute purest water is steam distillation using a water distiller. Distilled water is 99.8% pure water. By using a water distiller you get water that is purer than any bottled or tap water and purer than any other type of filtration or purification method.
How the Megahome 943SBS Deluxe UK Water Distiller works
With our water distiller the water is first gently boiled. This kills off viruses and bacteria and leaves most of the pollutants behind. The steam is then captured in a stainless steel coil where it cools to form pure water. This water then passes through an activated charcoal filter to finally remove any trace impurities.
How does it compare to bottled water?
You would be surprised at how many pollutants there are in bottled water AND it is expensive.
Most bottled water is more expensive than petrol. Using our water distiller the cost of water works out at about 9p a litre over a typical year of use.
How do water distillers compare to other forms of water purification?
The two most common other forms of filtration are activated charcoal filter and reverse osmosis. Of these reverse osmosis is the more advanced technique.
Tests show steam distillation is more effective than either carbon filtration or reverse osmosis.
In tests, this deluxe UK water distiller removes 99.99% of all these contaminants:
- Organic chemicals: Antibiotics, Fertilizers, Pesticides, Insecticides, Herbicides, Solvents, Growth Hormones, Hard Water Minerals.
- Inorganic chemicals: Aluminium, Phosphorus, Asbestos, Selenium, Sodium, Flouride, Iron, Lead, Mercury, Barium, Nitrates, Copper, Lead, Chlorine, Arsenic.
- Biological contaminants: Bacteria, Viruses, Chryptosporidium, Chlamydia, Giardia Cysts.
- Radioactive: Radium, Strontium 90 and Plutonium.
Easy to Use
Your water distiller produces 4 litres of absolutely pure water in five to six hours.
All you do is fill it up, switch it on and let it run.
It drips the water into a BPA-free polypropylene container (or glass container if that is the option you choose) which is designed to fit easily into a fridge and also fits inside the water distiller for easy transportation. It turns itself off automatically – you do not have to worry about it overheating.
Easy to Clean
As shown in the above picture, the distiller might look a bit disgusting by the end of the week. The good news is that your body didn’t have to act as a filter for all that crap. And the other good news is that cleaning the distiller is really easy. It’s just a case of filling the distiller with hot water, adding some residue cleaner (provided) and letting it run for 20 minutes or so until it’s nice and clean again. Full instructions are provided.
“Even tap water invariably contains a variety of poisons such as chlorine, chloramine, asbestos, pesticides, flouride, copper, mercury and lead. The best way to remove these is by distilling.” – Dr David Kennedy
“The only minerals that the body utilises are the organic minerals. All other types of minerals are foreign substances to the body and must be eliminated. Distilled water is the only water that can be taken into the body without damage to the tissues.” – Dr Allen Banik
“The body’s need for minerals is largely met through foods, not drinking water.” – American Medical Association
“The greatest damage done by inorganic minerals is to the small arteries and other blood vessels of the brain (75% water). Hardening of the arteries and calcification of blood vessels starts on the day you start taking inorganic chemicals and minerals from tap water into your body.” – Dr Paul Bragg

- 250g residue cleaner
- 6 active carbon filters
Is it BPA free?
Yes, the plastic jug is BPA-free polypropylene. If you are still worried you can always buy the deluxe glass jug option.
Do we need to use the charcoal filters?
The charcoal filters out volatile organic compounds (VOCs), things like pesticides and solvents. Apart from removing these nasty chemicals the charcoal filtration also makes the water taste better.
Why does the water taste different?
Pure distilled water tastes different to normal tap water, sometimes it takes a little bit of getting used to. Believe me, when you are used to it, tap water suddenly tastes disgusting!
Where’s the jug?
Inside the distiller.
How much does distillation cost?
7-9p a litre.
How long does it take to distil?
Usually 5-6 hours for 4 litres of water.
Where can I purchase additional filters and cleaner?
Does the water distiller contain aluminium parts?
The fins at the top of the distillers are aluminium but a stainless steel tube runs through the middle of these fins. At no time does water come in contact with aluminium. Aluminium is used here because it cools down quickly enabling the steam to be turned into water.
Does distillation also remove good minerals from the water?
Water distillation will remove everything from your tap water. Some people choose to add a small amount of Himalayan Salt (available from health food shops) to their distilled water to add healthy minerals. Also, as with any drinking water, it is a good idea to bottle the water soon after production to ensure it’s pH level doesn’t drop. More info here.
What is the delivery method and how long does it normally take to arrive?
Delivery is in the UK via Interlink Express. You should expect your distiller to arrive within 1 or 2 working days of ordering.
