Composed of the chemical elements oxygen and hydrogen and existing in liquid, gaseous, and solid states, water is a substance that is among the most plentiful and essential of compounds. It has the important ability to dissolve many other substances as a tasteless and odorless liquid at room temperature. With the versatility of water as a solvent, it is essential to living organisms. However, when you see all of the variations of water, you may get confused. With this in mind, we at AAA Water Team would like to discuss the differences between distilled water, mineral water, and purified water.
Distilled Water Benefits
Taking advantage of the different boiling points of water and other harmful components that may be contained within the water is the goal of the distillation process. Through distillation, it turns into vapor, leaving the other harmful components behind where water has a much lower boiling point than most other liquids. Rendering it pure and safe to drink, the water vapor is collected and soon returns to its liquid state. Being free of any solid impurities that may scratch surfaces, distilled water is also a good choice to use for cleaning. Keep in mind that though it may also get rid of the healthy minerals in the process, the distillation cannot remove pesticides from water, however.
Minerals, such as sodium, calcium, and magnesium have been added naturally by means of passing through various layers of the earth, as mineral water is water that has been collected from mineral springs. Within the bottled water, you can also buy synthetic mineral water.
Purified Drinking Water
Any water that has gone through a purification process is referenced as purified water. Distilled water is often also called ‘purified water’ because of this. Within the extent of purification that the water undergoes, is where the difference between the two lies, however. Whereas other purification methods, such as osmosis, are much more eco-friendly and usually lead to even purer results, distillation requires a lot of energy. Including pesticides and most chemicals, purified water is cleaner than distilled water and is closer to being 100% free of harmful contaminants. An effective way and ensures this water stay bacteria free, ozone removes bacteria and other biological matter from your water in a safe. In a water tank or water system, the process works by giving a burst of Oxone that is tasteless and odorless. To form insoluble metal oxides or elemental sulfur, the ozone oxides the iron, manganese, and sulfur in the water. Reducing the concentration of these metals in your water, these insoluble particles are then removed by post-filtration. When compared to chlorination, ozone has a much greater disinfection effectiveness against bacteria and viruses.
