4. Install Distillation System

The water has to be purified before it is sold to consumers and while there are other methods of purification such as carbon filters and reverse osmosis, the distillation method is more advisable. It can be used for the purification of all types of water even those with bacteria and parasites and you’ll still have 99.9% safe drinking water. It’s effectiveness is not dependant on water pressure, water temperature and pH.

Distillation is the process of heating water till boiling point. The water becomes vapor or steam and is separated from the impurities. The steam or vapor is then condensed back into pure liquid form while the impurities that remain as residue will be discarded.

This method of purification removes all kinds of waterborne biological contaminants which includes bacteria, viruses, organic and inorganic chemicals, heavy metals, volatile gases, cysts and other contaminants. Distilled water is pure and has no solids, minerals or trace elements. Water purified with this method is clean, natural and healthy and this makes Distillation the most advisable method for purification of water.

Reverse Osmosis Distillation System

Notwithstanding, most Nigerians in the pure water business opt for the Reverse Osmosis Distillation which equally produces pure, safe and clean water but is cheaper when compared to direct distillation.
