  • We built a three-step water distiller. Water is boiled in a pot on an electric burner, the steam that is created goes up through the tube and into the coil system, where it is then cooled by a constantly-cycling cooling system, built using tubing and a windshield wiper system from a car. The re-condensed steam then flows out of the nozzle at the end to be collected, cleaned of any unwanted elements. It is built primarily out of hard and flexible Poly-Vinyl Chloride (PVC) tubes. The other materials include hose clamps, epoxy glue, a motor-pump, a power source, and rubber tube caps. This distiller can efficiently clean water for use in science experiments or consumption.
