I just finished my 3rd rocket stove it's my best one yet.   I'd like to start distilling water for my dads CPAP machine.   I'd like to be able to make 5 - 10 gallons per session.  I've poked around the internet and haven't found a system that I'd like to build.

Are any of you making distilled water at home?  What is your system setup?

Any and all info is appreciated.

Thanks
Rich

Research moonshine, i bet you find what you need. Water is boiled, steam is caught , then chilled to condense back to water.

A steam.juicer might work and would be fast. Plenty of youtubes showing how they work, just skip the fruit.

Solar is easy. While its slow,  its working while the sun is up, with no time inputs from you. I'll make a quick drawing in a minute.

Here you go. Hope it makes sense. Costs nothing.  Can be scaled larger . This is solar, don't put on a heat source
