    Questions on Waterwise Distiller 1600 Non-electric Water Purifier & Dispenser

    • From at 9/5/11 8:56 AM
      • Will this distiller remove radioactive materials?
      • Per Water Wise it depends on what is being removed but based on standard testing it
        will remove radioactive materials that exist in water today. What you
        have to remember is; if the concentrations in the water are high for
        radioactivity, then the radioactive contaminants removed will be left
        behind in the boiler; therefore the boiler will be radioactive.

      • Does this Waterwise water distiller work to make sea water potable?

    • From Vickey at 3/14/14 12:50 PM
      • I use a water distiller and the condensed steam runs through a charcoal filter before dripping into the clean container. Why doesn't yours go through the charcoal?
      • The reason the Water Wise Non-Electric Water Distiller doesn't go through a charcoal filter is because there is a larger venting system in the center of the trays. Most venting trays are the size round of a pencil, while this one is two inches across.

      • Hello Frank,

        We appreciate you reaching out to us with your inquiry!

        I had to obtain some assistance from the manufacturer to answer your question regarding the WaterWise 1600 Home Water Distiller (Non-Electric,), please see response that the manufacturer has advised:

        The Waterwise Model 1600 has a 2” center vent to allow all VOC’s to exit the boiling chamber prior to the purified steam recondensing into liquid and dripping into the collecting cup to run out of the side Stainless Steel catch tube. Due to the large opening for the center VOC vent, carbon post filtering is not required. Electric distillers use a much smaller single hole vent and possibly some VOC’s could get by so the carbon is an optional safeguard in that application, but is not required nor utilized in the Non-electric Waterwise Model 1600.

        If you need any further assistance with this inquiry, you can call WaterWise at 800-874-9028.

        Thank you and Happy Holidays!

    Waterwise Distiller 1600 Review by


    What G. Harris above states is true. You must keep filling the water on top several times (requiring constant monitoring) and it takes over three hours to produce one gallon of distilled water. Yes, I make sure the cup inside is level and water can flow freely out, but have not yet produced a gallon in an hour after several tries. I now wonder how this water distiller can work over a camp fire or wood burning stove. I guess if this is all I have to use, I'll figure out a way, but am terribly spoiled by the electric distillers. All in all, I'll keep this non-electric water distiller for the day that I have no power & be grateful that I have it. (Posted on 7/7/11)

    This is a great distiller. it requires close watch, though, and keep your exhaust fan going over your stove as there's a lot of steam coming from it. The water on top evaporates a few times during the course of making a gallon, so you have to keep filling it up on top to make the water distill and so it doesn't run dry. The water just needs to boil for making distilled water. Great for when you've got no electricity or your electric one fails. (Posted on 9/13/10)
