Re: Making Distilled Water?

I'd worry a bit about the low point of the sink 'condensor'.. and pushing through the condensate into the bottle.. also without a proper 'trap' I suspect the steam will blow through rather quickly. Also the sink water will heat up so will require some recooling, utlimately using a fair amount of water.

Can you set up a small heat exchanger with a circulation pump and use sea water as a cooling medium? or are you too tropical?
