  • Will this work

    I was Making coffee the other morning and I was trying to clean it alittle and noticed, as on most if not all coffee pots you pour the water into the back..when you turn it on it heats the water in the back and causes it steam and go up to where the coffee filter and coffee is then drips down into the pot

    Ive seen tabletop distillers and they always resembled a coffee maker, think it would distill, just leave the coffee out maybe leave the filter in

    I can't say for sure. It would be a nice, cheap solution if it did. I don't think it works quite the same as the mini distillers or you would not be able to tell a difference in the water used to make coffee.

      Think it would purify it enough to use in a tank?

        I just tried out my coffee pot as a distiller. Maybe it is just mine but rather than steam all of the water, it seems to use steam pressure to 'burp' up the warmed water. The steam might be pure, but the burped water would not be.

          No. If it was truly distilling water, it would be filled with sediments in no time.

            You can get RO units pretty cheap. You only need the prefilter and RO unit... the rest of the filters are for taste, etc. I have mine plumbed to a plastic barrel with a float valve... it only uses water when the level in the tank drops, and I have the out-flow plumbed with 1-1/2in pipe and valve for quick fills of my buckets/tanks. It's so much nicer than running to the store, and it pays for itself (at a $1 per gallon) in only a couple runs.
            I do things.

              Dont hold me to this but....

              Along time ago I was looking into an RO unit as well. I talked to a specialist in the field and he said that if I needed distilled water....an RO unit doesnt even come close. I think he said the RO DI units would be much better, but still not up to par.

              ....not sure how much of a difference it makes.

                RODI water is preferred for drinking, and if you're running a high end aquarium, but for plating/anodizing, RO only water is just fine.

                All we're really interested in is removing the dissolved metals from the water, which RO does very well, without the need for a DI filter.
