How To Turn Salt Water Into Drinking Water
What would be the best and easiest method of turning pool water into drinking water? Also, I have many plastic containers filled with water in my laundry room.
They have been there for many months. Are they drinkable or do I need to add bleach before drinking and if so, how much?
My residential area is suffering from many difficulties regarding drinking water and sea is nearer from our areaso which is vest way to convert salt water to drinking water in HUGE amount.?? All these arguments below are putting people in bad moods. When you can just go to the store and get yourself pureified water. Because carrying 1 gallon of water weighs about 8 pounds a 30 day supply would be around pounds to carry to the location vs creating water from distillation.
Copper is toxic and leaches into the distillate. Go ahead and use copper if it is a matter of survival. If you have a choice, use glass for the tubing. I think you need to get your facts straight. I will agree that glass get best in terms of reducing contamination of distillates.
However copper has been and still is recognized as one of the best materials to use in cooking. The problem that comes with distillation, whether it is water or moonshine are the materials used to joint copper tubing pure. Many of the solders used in copper joint fitting contain chemicals that are harmful to us. The problem with old moonshine still was not the copper but the solder used in making the still. A lot of solder contain lead and other how harmful to us. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

Turn the seawater up water the pot so that the water boils gently. As the water boils, it will turn to steam, which will rise to the lid and run down the lid into the cup, leaving salt and other impurities in the bottom of the pan.
Make a hole in the piece of rubber or cork just big enough for the tubing to fit in. Fill the bottle with water, leaving some space at the top. Place the tube through the cork or seal so that it is even with the bottom of the cork, then put the cork in the top of the bottle.

Run the tubing to another container that is lower than the bottle so that the water can run out of it and not back into the bottle. Put the bottle over your heat source, being careful not to get the tubing hot. Bring the water to a boil and watch as the steam comes out of the water, through the tubing and converts back to water as it drips out of the end of the tube into your container.
If you have a teapot, you could attach the tubing to the spout. Fill your camp pot about half way with salt water. Form a cone with your aluminum foil so that the tubing is wrapped around the top of the cone and the bottom is used to seal the pot. Place the pot over heat and run the tubing to a catch basin or bottle.
Saline water: Desalination
As the water comes to a simmer, it will start to evaporate and the steam will come up through the tube, dripping fresh water out the other end. Robert Farmer January 22, Reply.

If you collect and cool the vapor, the water you collect will be pure and all the salt will be left behind. This is called distillation. On the side that you pump, the salt will be left behind.
On the other side of the membrane you will obtain pure water. By using the water distiller at home or in the laboratory during the day you can produce tens of liters of pure water. But what to do when hundreds of liters are needed every day? In the industrial production of pure water the following different methods of water purification are competing against each other: Following is a brief overview of these methods.
For the Reverse Osmosis water purification the semi-permeable membrane is used. The membrane allows passing through the clean water, but retains the dissolved salts.
