CDC best way to remove lead from water

"Distillation Systems use a process of heating water to the boiling point and then collecting the water vapor as it condenses, leaving many of the contaminants behind.  Distillation Systems will remove common chemical contaminants, including lead, and many organic chemicals. Consider water treatment methods such as distillation, and carbon filters specially designed to remove lead."

How to remove lead from your drinking water for maximum health?

1. The boiling chamber is automatically filled with your water supply or source water. This includes whatever water source you use including: tap water, well water, municipal water, rain water or any other drinking water source.

2. The water is heated to boil. As the water molecule changes state from a liquid to steam the lead is unable to hang on the molecule. The lead remains in the boiling chamber.

3. The steam is then cooled with a fan and turned back into water.

4. The water then passes through a carbon filter as a dual-layer of water purification.

5. The lead free distilled water is then deposited in the 316 "surgical grade" stainless steel storage tank.
