Distilled water is the best source of pure water for many people at this time because of the questionable quality of municipal water supplies and well water. Inadequate monitoring at bottled water facilities and the use of plastic bottles makes “bottled water” less than ideal. The expense of artesan spring water puts it out of financial range for many people.
Ozonation and ultraviolet irradiation of water offers great potential for purification of large volumes of water. Most municipal companies use chemical additives (predominately chlorine) and aluminum compounds because they are cheaper.
Extended use of distilled water has been criticized because it contains no minerals. To make up for the loss of minerals in the distillation process, nutrient supplements and organic vegetables can improve the mineral content in the diet when distilled water is consumed.
Many department stores offer distillers for home use with tap water so carrying heavy jugs of water is eliminated.
