Solar Seawater Distiller Turns Salt Water into Drinking Water

Last Update: April 05, 2015

California which is going through one of it's worst droughts in a long time, may soon be in need of these! This is what we can do when we put our minds to the task at hand.

A genius yet very simple way to produce healthy, bacteria-free water. This is awesome, go to this link and watch the video and let me know your thoughts!

On the other hand, needs to be made much bigger. Only makes a little over 1 gallon/day.

You bet- what a great innovation- There is more to CA's water problems, however this could be a great start.

I'd love to see full specs (size) and pricing, though. Even though it doesn't produce a lot, if it's not too big or expensive I could get 4 of them, and that would be enough at least for me. I'd rarely have to get water from shore except when I have guests aboard.

You are so right Tom. I was born here in California in 1944 and just saw, the other day, that this is the worst year for rain since 1942. A coupe weeks ago I flew a small plane from Placerville to Columbia, along the foothills and there was no real snow on the Sierra Mountains. Not a good sign.

My wife's family came to California from Oklahoma during the dust bowel days. I told her that her "CVO" family was going to go back to Oklahoma. haha. She kind of chuckled and agreed.

The De-salter system is great. I am deigning a Residential Grey Water Recycle System that will recycle shower, laundry and bathroom sink water to usable landscape water using a bio-sand-filter. If I put in an activated charcoal filter, you could actually use the water for laundry and maybe even drink it. Not sure I want to drink it but if I get it tested and it is OK, who knows. Have to see how it works out.

Great video,

Larry

Hi Larry, thanks for chiming in. I would really like to hear from you on your de-salter system once you get it up and running. You are another example of what we can do if we put our minds to- as I said before "The task at hand". My hats off to you and keep up the innovating work!

Hi Tom,
This sounds like a great product, and this could very likely help with California's drought problems. This could also help out other states that are going through a drought as well.

Thanks for sharing this video with everyone here and I look forward to reading more posts from you.

Cheers
Scott
