Filters just aren’t good enough in an emergency!
The Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA), and the American Red Cross recommend only three ways to purify water during an emergency; boiling, chemical disinfection and distillation. Filters of any kind are not recommended because they cannot be relied upon if there are dangerous biological contaminants in the water. Distillation offers the BEST protection from biologicals, and produces high-purity water. See for yourself, check out what FEMA and the Red Cross recommend.
Production Rate: The production rate depends upon the amount of heat/energy you put into the boiling water. Our tests showed a rate of 1/2 gallon of distilled water per hour.
Heat Source: You can use many different heat sources, such as a coal fire, propane grill or a wood or electric stove. The heat source should provide enough heat to boil water for a long period of time, it should be a controlled fire and shouldn’t have high flames, and the Survival Still must have a sturdy, stable base to sit on. The fire should also not be so hot as to melt the high-temperature silicone tube.
Raw Water Requirements: Water should not contain high-levels of flammable chemicals. User should always use the cleanest water available. Other warnings in the instruction manual.
Construction: The Survival Still is made with heavy duty, 304 grade, 18 gauge stainless steel.
Package Includes: Two Piece Survival Still, High-Temp Silicone Tubing, Instruction Manual, Product Key for a Free E-Book titled, “How to Use the Survival Still to Save your Life”. **Pots and collection bottle are not included.**
Patents: US & International Patents Pending
Performance: Third-party testing demonstrated the reduction of contaminated ocean water from over 30,000 parts per million (ppm) to less than 3 ppm. Testing on other distillers has shown 99+% removal of uranium, cesium, and other metals, as well as excellent removal of petroleum-based chemicals. No claim is made that the Survival Still is perfect or that it offers 100% removal of contaminants, because there is no water treatment process that is perfect nor is there such a thing as 100% pure water.
