Everyday Solar Distiller

Designed to aid in providing safe drinking water for people in developing countries, Gabriele Diamanti’s Eliodomestico water distiller harnesses the sun’s power to produce up to 5 liters of drinking water daily. Eliodomestico is almost 3 times as efficient as traditional solar stills and functions without electricity or even much maintenance as it works autonomously during the day. Made from only terra-cotta and zinc-plated metal sheets, the design could also be produced or repaired by locals quite easily.

The distiller itself is very easy to use: in the morning simply fill the water tank with salty or dirty water from a local source, and in the evening collect clean, evaporated and re-condensed water in a portable recipient placed underneath the tank.
