White Baked-Enamel Model 100 Water Distiller with Polypropylene Carafe

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 stars with 8 Reviews

- May 3, 2017

This is the 2nd unit purchased from H2O labs. The first unit was the 200 model. I was a newbie to distillers & the description stated it to be the easiest unit to operate. It worked fine but I found it to be a pain having to soak the heating element for several hours (& scrubbing it with a small brush intermittently). I was secretly thrilled when the heating element died. Finally, I could buy the 100 or 300 unit that has an unexposed heating element. All you have to do is wipe out the resevoir after distilling. Actually, I sprinkle a small amount of citric acid over the layer of lime (sludge or crud) & pour about 1/4" of water. The citric acid dissolves rapidly. Then I wipe the bottom with a non-metal scouring pad & presto - the lime is released from the stainless steel. Cleanup is less than 5 minutes with this unit. If you're a newbie, trying to decide which model to buy, go with the 100 or 300 if you can afford it. You absolutely will not be sorry. The unit more than pays for itself in short time (for me anyway). I use about 5 gallons per week in my Keurig coffee maker and & several AeroGardens. What a splendid product. It's so easy to use & easy to clean. I am very pleased with my 100 model distiller. I would recommend it to anybody & will definitely buy another when this one bites the dust.

This distiller is excelent. It produces clean, great tasting water every time and is very easy to use. After a couple cycles using the carbon pod, a ZEROWater tester reported 0. My only complaint is how difficult it is to remove the carbon pod housing without using a screwdriver as recommended in the manual. I can't see any conceivable way for someone to use their hands to remove it. The manual says to push on the tabs, but the tabs are so far up in the unit that I can't reach them. That's literally my only issue though. This thing works exactly as advertised, and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Have had the distiller for one year.I make 1-4 gallons per day. It is an excellent choice, and the cleaner works like a charm when it does need to be cleaned.

We have had this distiller for 2 1/2 years. We have made 2 to 3 gallons of distilled water every day. It is a well made product that stands up to heavy use. I will never go back to tap water. We are looking forward to upgrading to a higher capacity distiller. This one gallom distiller is worth every penny we spent on it. With electricity and carbon filters it costs us about 30 cents/ gallon.

Convenient Light-Weight Model 200 Water Distiller with Easy-Fill Reservior

Rated 4.9 out of 5.0 stars with 20 Reviews

- Mar 20, 2019

I'm a perfectionist ... so bad that folks call me 'Monk' after the old tv series about the perfectionist detective ... want perfect ? Do this : Buy or make an activated charcoal water filter which in no way equals the ability of the H2OLabs 200 model EXCEPT this :a charcoal countertop dispenser removes all lime deposits which is primarily the white chalky coating you keep cleaning off of your #200 ... Amazon sells a 5 pound box of activated charcoal for $20 dollars or so ... Cut the first 2 inches off the top of a family liter of Coca Cola, punch a hole about 3/4 the diameter of a dime, and push a hanger twine or cord through two holes you make at the top for hanging ... fill the bottle up full with Amazons granular charcoal (not any type of fine powder) and you will have a bigger, taller, more diameter sized activated charcoal filter than anyone sells ... that unit itself removes most everything that causes your 200 heating element to cake up, you'll find it's still clean after weeks or like mine .. months of use ...

I have been using the Convenient Easy-Fill 200 just about everyday, all day for two years now. What a great product. When mine finally gives out I'll be back in line ready to purchase another one. +++((UPDATE))+++ I originally purchased mine in 2012, and after six years and almost 1500+ gallons later mine finally gave up the ghost!!! Six (6) years!!! 1500+ GALLONS!!! Great Product!!! I'm ordering another!!!

It definitely cleans the water. One reviewer was worried because it didn't leave much residue. I think some folks have more lime than others. Definitely my water has tons of lime (we also have well water). After 5-7 gallons of distilling, I have to soak the heating element for several hours to remove the lime. It's kind of a pain because you have to scrub the element intermittently with a little (non-metal) brush to assist in removing the lime and then soak it some more. I was kind of glad when the element kicked the bucket (14 months of use) then I had a good reason to order the 100 or 300 unit. I opted for the 100 unit. It's so great not having to mess with the element! So, with the exception of the lime encrusted heating element, the unit worked great for 14 months. I used it alot because I have 7 AeroGardens growing year round & they require distilled water. I wasn't about to haul 7 gallons of water from the store every week! I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the crusty element. If you're trying to decide which type of unit to get & you can afford the 100 or 300 unit, go with them, you won't be sorry. NOTE: The customer service has offered to fix it because it was so close to warranty & they felt it should not have died so early. That is real decent of them.

I own a Model 300 and have used my distiller for 3 months now. It works so well and is easy to use. It is a permanent fixture in my kitchen and I use it daily or more often as needed. I use the water for me, my pets, plants, cooking and more for backup. I really enjoy the taste of the water, it's crisp and clean! The unit is economical to operate. I highly recommend this distiller!!

This is a wonderful appliance to have! We ran it for the first day and a half continually so we could get enough water to only have to run the cycle at night. It's not very noisy either. It was fun to see what was left in the bottom after you have a gallon of pure water.

Stainless Steel Model 300SS Water Distiller with Glass Carafe

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 stars with 14 Reviews

I've been using this distiller (Model 300SS) for a few days now and I'm very impressed with it. I spent a lot of time researching counter top units from various manufacturers until I came across this one. From the grade of stainless steel used for the boiling chamber to the glass carafe along with the porcelain insert and carbon pod combination in the exit spout this distiller has it all at a great price point which makes it an excellent bang for the buck. For comparison purposes I distilled using unfiltered water straight out of the tap and compared the results against the filtered water from the tap which is what we always use as our primary source of drinking water. It was very surprising the amount of residue left behind from the unfiltered tap water. Of course we expected residue but not quite to the extent we witnessed. On the other hand we have a very good filtration system so with the filtered tap water (which is what we always use) the amount of residue left behind in the boiling chamber was negligible which is in line with what we were expecting. However, having said that, the filtered water no matter how well it's filtered still may have harmful elements left in it no matter how small or what type of elements they may be which we were able to confirm. So the bottom line is that this distiller, in my opinion, delivers the absolute cleanest and most pristine water on earth just as nature intended and is the only water you should be drinking or use for rinsing your fruits and vegetables or other food items prior to consumption.

I have been using my distiller for one week. I cannot believe how amazingly delicious my gross tap water has been transformed into something so pure, crisp, and clean tasting. I distill overnight so I have fresh water for the day. I use the water primarily for drinking and for my coffee machine. The cleanup is so easy, it's crazy. There is a residue on the bottom of the cylinder each time I distill. I simply pour a small amount of white vinegar to cover the bottom and let it stand for awhile. Then I rinse with a non-scratch pad and tap water. Dry thoroughly. Done. No more crappy aftertaste, no more buying bottled water and above all, no more contributing plastic bottles into the environment.

Update 10.9.17: I've been using this same unit for many years now distilling hundreds and hundreds of gallons of water with not one problem. during this time I also have been drinking commercial purified water, which I have had to cut back on. Sadly the quality control of commercial bottled water cannot be trusted. Here is a recent retest I did of Kroger purified water that illustrates this problem. https://danieldteolijrarchivalcollection.wordpress.com/2017/10/08/kroger-purified-water-has-gone-from-one-of-the-best-to-one-of-the-worst/ Daniel D.

Outstanding product! Am using this model very successfully in Pakistan and have cut my purchase of bottled water to zero. Works perfectly and is easy to use. Clean boiling chamber with a small amount of vinegar and a non-metal scouring pad after each use - VERY easy!

Mini-Classic CT Water Distiller

- May 27, 2018

I've been using this model for years and it works great. One thing they may have already changed is in my older model I had to put more and bigger holes in the carbon filter tray. Simple fix I did myself because sometimes the water didn't go through fast enough and would spill over the top of it. No problems since.

Water Distiller Cleaning Crystals

These things are scary in a good way. I typically clean my distiller with soap and water, but sometimes there's some scale that just won't come off around the bottom edges of the boiling chamber. The cleaning crystals turn the water into a highly concentrated acid that gets rid of the scale very well. It's probably good for your drain and pipes when you dump it down the sink too.

This stuff works great!
