As part of our mega health kick we want to start drinking better water with no flouride / mercury etc. The site I've been looking at and US amazon recommends water distillers as being the best for this. They are super expensive and while we are happy to do this, we don't want to get it wrong. I still don't understand the difference between distilled water and filtered water.. Does anyone have any experience / tips they can pass on? Thanks.

Distilled water is totally sterile because it's been boiled. You give it to sick people with lowered immune systems. Filtered removes particles like lime. If you're not actually sick, filtered is clean enough.

Distilled water is purified tap water without contaminants such as organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals and biological contaminants through the distillation process. A water distiller boils the water, killing contaminants and converting it to steam which is then collected in a stainless steel coil and condensed back into water.
