    1-2 liters a month?.... wow!
    You definitely dont need a RO
    With that little usage, I would just buy a gallon every couple months and be done with it.
    Unless you are just wanting to play with the technology of course

    Av8tor1, that's what I do right now. I get my water from Winco, but I would like to distill my own water.

    riceman, that would be a great option, but I'm more focused on solar distillers because they don't require filters. However, they do need to be cleaned of mineral deposits.

    Man, I'm lucky the tap water in Portland is so clean: only 18 ppm!

    I agree 100%. Buy the water.

    How much money do you want to spend? Here's a quick Google search result: http://www.nutriteam.com/servlet/the...ers/Categories Prices vary from a few hundred to a few thousand.

    I didn't read up on any of these products. But the minerals will always be left behind and will need to be cleaned out of the boiling chamber. We started using a product at work called CLR to remove scale from copper parts in a boiler. Very easy to use, and does not present a severe health hazard to use.
