Why SolaráDistilledáWater

  • SHEC Energy mimics the natural water distillation process using the heat energy of the sun to produce pure water.á Using the sun saves energy and reduces our carbon footprint.á
  • In nature, the sun evaporates water from rivers, lakes and oceans, purifying water in the process.á
  • Ground water run-off puts contaminants such as pesticides and other agricultural contaminants back into the water.
  • In almost all cases, distillation is by far the best bet for contaminant-free drinking water.

The heat energy of the sun provided by Ultra Lite can be used to purify water through a process of solar distillation.


This is possible by using the sun’s energy, which is free. By using the suns energy, we mimic what happens in nature to provide pure drinking water.

In nature, the sun evaporates water from oceans, lakes and rivers, leaving contaminants behind, such as sea salt. Trees and vegetation also give off water vapour through a process called evapotranspiration. This water vapour then forms clouds and it rains.

Watercycle


As this rain flows into rivers and streams, a main source for our drinking water, agricultural contaminants can be picked up. Harmful micro organisms can live in the water as well. It is for this reason that water has to be treated before consumption.

We are now learning that there are certain longer term side affects to certain chemical treatments, such as reduced thyroid function from chlorine.

Often when a town or city has a problem with their water system, they issue a boil water warning to make sure your drinking water is safe.

Clean drinking water is something we take for granted. As more of our natural fresh water sources become depleted or contaminated, we have to increasingly treat our water supply. In many areas of the world, ocean water must be desalinated. Fortunately we live on a world with oceans of water.

Earth


Getting back to nature and bringing nature to where we live, with the use of SHEC Energy's ábenign renewable technology, is a healthy alternative to our drinking water.á
