Definition

A method to remove the impurities in water by boiling the water and then recondensing the steam.

Things you need to know

Distillation is not recommended as a way to purify water because contaminants that evaporate easily can be recondensed back into the water and would therefore not be removed.

Cost Considerations

A distillation system can cost $150 to $200.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
