Distilled Water VS Purified Water

Water that is treated by a water filter or purifier is similar to distilled water, but the main difference is in the filtration process. Distilled water is filtered by boiling water to separate the water molecules from contaminants and hard minerals. The pure water vapor is collected on one side of the water distiller and any other contaminants are left behind. A purification system uses various filters, reverse osmosis systems, and ion exchangers to block out impurities. If you are looking to choose a purification system for your home it is important to know the benefits and drawbacks of each method.
