it seems that distilled water is easy to get in some places, and very difficult to get in other places!
I have been using a water distiller for the home for many years, with complete satisfaction. Mine was purchased at Sears, but this same model is available under several "badges".
Please go to http://www.steamdistiller.com
The model I use is the one in the center photograph, for one gallon process at each occasion.
Maybe it is adaptable to 50 Hz current?
Good luck, bauzace50
-P.S.- This same model is available in different badges. Look also in http://www.waterwise-distillers.com
This very model is available in 240 VAC/ 50 Hz. In this place it is called Model 4000.
-P.S.- the benefit of having a distiller is that one can use it for the family's cooking and drinking over and over again. Ice cubes attain a really superior texture.
As I watched the stars in the sky I wondered where the ceiling had gone.
