Lincoln, Nebraska inventor Glenn Meder recently introduced his new water distillation system, Survival Still. The Survival Still system distills non-potable water so that it is consumable, making it the perfect solution in times of crisis like Hurricane Sandy, which left thousands of East Coast residents without adequate water supplies recently.

The Survival Still allows you to turn any water, including ocean water and microbiologically contaminated water into a permanent supply of safe, high-purity water. The Still is a heavy-duty stainless steel water distiller that purifies water by boiling the water and collecting only the pure steam – a process called distillation. The result is consistently pure water from any water source, without the use of filters.

The Survival Still was a culmination of Meder’s 20 years in the distillation industry and countless efforts to come up with the perfect emergency water distiller. After over 60 different versions of the product, he concluded with the current design, as he felt it was the best and simplest design with the highest functionality.

Survival Still will be available for retail in December 2012 and pre-orders can be placed on their website, now.
