Water distillers take a long time to make a 1 gallon of water typically 4 to 5 hours. AquaTru filters 1 gallon in 10-15 minutes. Distillers also use a lot of electricity typically, 3.2 Kilowatt per gallon which equates to $0.38 in electricity per gallon. AquaTru uses only 0.01 kilowatt per gallon or $0.001 cost per gallon. Finally and most importantly, distillers do not remove volatile organic chemicals like benzene and disinfection by products commonly found in tap water. AquaTru’s VOC Carbon filter removes these contaminants.
