For years I’ve been saying that pure water is one of the most vital, yet overlooked, elements for staying healthy.
This is especially true right now in the middle of the COVID-19 Pandemic because the best thing you can do is to keep yourself and your loved ones in peak physical health. You need to keep your immune system strong so you can effectively fight the virus if you happen to contract it.
This is not the time to be fighting multiple illnesses or dealing with toxins. This is especially true if you have diabetes or other health problems.
Pure water is essential for your health. Yet most people misunderstand water purity and underestimate its importance to their health. This is true even of people who should know better, including many doctors and nutritionists.
I’d like to demonstrate this point with an example that should hit home for most Americans; it’s now been four years since the lead water crisis in Flint, MI. So, we must have solved the problem by now, right?
Lead is a very dangerous heavy metal because it builds up in your body and can cause serious health problems and can negatively impact your immune system. The EPA sets a maximum level of lead at 15 parts per billion (ppb). At its highest, the lead level in Flint tap water was 158 ppb, more than 10x the limit!
There is NO safe level of lead exposure. Even at small doses, lead poses a health threat, especially for pregnant women, infants and young children. The fact is that hundreds of kids have permanent brain damage because of being exposed to lead in Flint.
Just two months after the Flint, MI crisis hit the news, USA TODAY published an investigation that “identified almost 2,000 additional water systems spanning all 50 states where testing has shown excessive levels of lead contamination over the past four years.”
Since then there have been a number of other reports about how big a problem lead is. A CNN article reported that, “More than 5,300 water systems in America are in violation of the EPA’s lead and copper rule”
You do not want to be consuming water that contains lead right now.
THE PROBLEM GOES FAR BEYOND JUST LEAD THOUGH…
In 2014, over 10,000 gallons of a chemical called MCHM leak from a neglected storage tank into West Virginia’s Elk River, just upstream from Charleston’s water supply. As a result, 300,000 residents were told not to drink, cook with, bathe or even touch the water.
This West Virginia chemical spill was a huge media event and it was the top story in the news for more than a week. So this type of chemical spill must be a rare event, right?
Not in the slightest.
After the WV chemical spill, BusinessWeek reported that there were over 3,885 similar chemical spills in the U.S. in 2013! That equates to more than 10 per day in the USA!
Pause for a moment and let that sink in…
Now, let’s take it a step further. This number of 3,885 chemical spills in 2013 is based solely on self-reports of accidents from 76 publicly traded companies. So how many unreported chemical spills came from the thousands of other companies? The military? Other government agencies? Twice this amount? Ten times this amount?
No one knows.
THE FACT IS, WE LIVE IN A TOXIC WORLD. THE EVIDENCE IS STAGGERING.
If these toxins are in your water, they can negatively affect your health and your immune system.
It’s important to remember that when the government says that your tap water is “safe”, they are using the LEGAL definition of the word “safe”, not the English language definition of the word “safe”.
An article by the New York Times says, “Only 91 contaminants are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act, yet more than 60,000 chemicals are used within the United States, according to Environmental Protection Agency estimates. Government and independent scientists have scrutinized thousands of those chemicals in recent decades, and identified hundreds associated with a risk of cancer and other diseases at small concentrations in drinking water, according to an analysis of government records by The New York Times.”
THE IMPACT OF COVID-19
There is no evidence to suggest that COVID-19 is transmitted via the water supply, so you should not need to turn to the Red Cross and FEMA guidelines for treating your water (if this changes we will let you know).
I want to emphasize two points to consider right now…
FIRST, it’s imperative that you stay as healthy as possible right now. It comes down to this simple question, “Do you think you have a better chance of being healthy and keeping your immune system in top shape if you avoid consuming chemicals and toxins?” If your answer is yes, then you should drink only pure water. NOTE: This is true all the time, not just during the current pandemic.
SECOND, we don’t know the extent of isolation and lock-down COVID-19 will cause, nor do we know how it will affect hoarding of bottled water. It’s important to be in control of your own supply of pure water, so you can adapt to whatever situation we find ourselves in.
WHAT TO DO?
The single most important point to understand is this; YOU are responsible for ensuring that your family’s consumable water is free from harmful contaminants.
The single best way to ensure the purity of your water is to use a high-quality home distiller, because it’s the only way to be in complete control of your water supply. Distillation is recognized as the gold standard for purification by scientists, doctors, and FEMA and the Red Cross. A home water distiller offers the highest level of protection against the broadest spectrum of possible contaminants, and the purity is consistent over time.
Distillation uses water’s built-in purification method of changing from a liquid to a vapor and then back to liquid. Here’s how distillation works…
Over the past eight years I’ve focused on teaching people how to purify dangerously contaminated water in an emergency situation, for when the infrastructure fails. For such situations, the Survival Still is an excellent product.
The situation we find ourselves in now, however, is one in which our infrastructure is fine. We all have electricity and our water system is fine. It is more important than ever to keep in top health and to keep in control of your own water supply, so I strongly recommend a household water distiller.
Specifically, I recommend the AquaNui Brand of water distillers, which are made by my father’s business. For over 30 years my family has owned one of these systems because it’s the best way to ensure that you are only drinking pure water.
I worked with my father for more than 20 years. I know that these are the best distillers on the market and that they are Made in the USA by an ethical, family-owned company. I think you will find them to be quite reasonably priced, and surprisingly, even the larger automatic systems are priced lower than a high-end filter system (yet they are much more effective).

- The Survival Still Emergency Water Distiller will soon be back in stock and can be ordered here.
For most families I specifically recommend the AquaNui 12/15 with the pump so you can have the water delivered directly to a separate faucet on your sink. It installs into your water line as simply as running a water line into your fridge.
An important thing to understand is that it’s not just about DRINKING pure water, but rather everything you CONSUME should be pure. This means that soups, coffee, tea, pasta, rice, protein drinks, and especially baby formula should be made with pure water, which is why I recommend the larger sizes.
Please note that right now distillers are in very high demand because of COVID-19. My father’s company is making them as fast as possible (in the USA), but we simply don’t know whether further quarantine measures are going to interrupt manufacturing. If you are interested in investing in a good water distiller, now is the time!
If you want to talk to someone about the AquaNui products, call the company and ask for Taylor at 402-467-9300, extension 111. She will be able to explain the products to you and can help you choose the right configuration. Tell her that you heard about it from me and you will get a discount.
I am thankful that I am in the position to educate you on water contamination and steps that you can take to protect your family.
I hope this helps you.
P.S. One final point, not only will your purchase protect your family, but it’s important to support US businesses and employees now.
