Distilled Water Vs Reverse Osmosis
Which is better water distiller or reverse osmosis filter? And why?
Dave is a fan of reverse osmosis but I have never heard him mention distillation.
In my opinion distillation is the way to get the purest water as it removes organics and nitrates but it also strips the water of valuable minerals. I have heard that due to its pure state it 'leaches' the minerals out of the body. But is it really the case? Wouldn't adding sea salt to the water or eating dark green leafy veggies compensate for the loss of minerals?
The other negative aspect of the distiller is the relatively high maintenance cost, after all it is energy intensive process; typically 0.5-1 kWh for 1 l. The distiller costs around Â£150 here in the UK.
