My Water Distiller

In Africa, using PC provided filters, and using a knife and fire we built a two bucket gravity water filter. Pour well water into the top bucket and wait till it drips down into the bottom bucket. Here in China, they lend us a high tech electric water distiller that leaves behind a visible layer of minerals and metals.

I would highly recommend cleaning your water distiller regularly. Why?

1. At the end of your service, if the water distiller isn't clean, PC will charge you money. Trying to clean a distiller with two year's worth of minerals and metals is not easy.

2. If you don't clean it regularly, your "clean" water will start tasting like the metals and minerals you think are being left behind.

It took me a whole day trying to clean a six month layer of mineral. I've got to stop being so lazy and clean it more regularly.
