Sorry, we no long carry the LifeSaver Distiller Kits, but don't fret!
Highwater Filters is proud to offer the Vortex Non-Electric Water Distiller Kit
Now with drain assembly!
We are proud and excited to add this new product to the water purification market.
Water distillation is an age-old technology and is one of the best water purification methods that exists. Water distillation can remove chemicals, heavy metals, salts, and other contaminants that many filters and purifiers simply cannot. Distillation can purify sea water, urine and even sewer water into clean drinking water.
As our test video demonstrates, the Vortex really works.
The Vortex is designed to be used with a pressure cooker that has an external stem valve on the lid. Not all pressure cookers have this type these days. Most older models do.
Any heat source that can boil water can be used with the Vortex including camp fires, gas stoves, electric stoves, rocket stoves, wood stove etc. We tested the Vortex on a Grover Rocket Stove (made in Utah) and were so impressed we have them available for sale.
All parts in the Vortex Non-Electric Water Distiller Kits are made in the USA. We went to great lengths to source all the components with American-made parts. That is important to us, and we know that many of our customers share our commitment to buying American whenever possible. We've searched for competitively priced parts so we can offer this quality product at a low cost to consumers. We hope you agree that the price can't be beat.
We are confident that you will be happy with the quality of the Vortex. We guarantee your satisfaction.
We tried to find a stainless steel pressure cooker made in America, but found that none exist. So we found a great quality cooker made in Spain by Magefesa. We've modified the lids with our exclusive Vortex adaptor to increase the flow rate and to make connection a snap. We have several different sizes to choose from. If you want to use your own cooker, just make sure it has the external valve that used to be standard on most pressure cookers but now are much harder to find. The Magefesa Star R has the right kind of valve. Vintage Presto stainless steel pressure cookers, made in the USA, have a compatible valve. We will try to compile a list of other brands that can be used in tandem with the Vortex system.
For a low-cost pressure cooker check the web. There are reasonably priced cookers with a compatible valve.
Here's a stainless steel one probably made in China: Presto Here's an aluminum one made in India: Prestige
The exclusive Vortex coil and adaptor fitting are manufactured in house from US-made 316L Stainless Steel.
The Vortex coil is designed to be installed in a 5 gallon bucket, or other suitable container. Assembly is easy but does require drilling two holes in the bucket. For a limited time, we have pre-installed bucket kits available, for your convenience.
New! We've added a drain assembly to all pre-installed Vortex bucket kits. This facilitates changing out of cooling water.
We think you will agree that the Vortex Non-Electric Water Distiller is the best water distiller of its kind available anywhere.

The Life Saver Non-Electric Steam Water Distiller Kit will
purify any and all types of contaminated water, ranging from sea water,
polluted well water, river water, flood water, or even sewer water.
Life Saver Non-Electric Distiller Kit uses 316L
stainless steel tubing that is wound into a condensing coil.
pressure cooker is used as the boiling chamber, with High Temperature
Food/Medical Grade Vinyl Tubing used to connect the pressure cooker to
the condensing coil.
Life Saver Distiller Kit is a Closed-System in which 100% of the steam
vapor exiting the pressure cooker is condensed into Pure Distilled
None of the steam vapor can escape into the atmosphere.
The steam distillation process leaves all the impurities behind in the contaminated water.
That is, only pure steam vapor exits the pressure cooker, leaving all organic and inorganic pollutants, radioactive particles, lead, other heavy metals and other contaminates behind, since they are not carried in the steam vapor.
Steam Water Distillation is the most reliable stand-alone method for removal of Arsenic from water.
Non-Electric Life Saver Distiller Kit produces up to 1 ounce per minute
of Pure Sterile Distilled Water – which is a faster rate of production
than a conventional electric steam water distiller in which the heating
coil is immersed in the water in the boiling tank.
Life Saver Distiller Kit is capable of producing enough potable water
each day for the drinking and cooking needs of a family of 3-4 people.
that is needed is the Life Saver Distiller Kit, a Pressure Cooker, a 5
gallon bucket (not included), a water source, and heat, which can range
from a propane stove to an open camp fire with a grate on which to place
the pressure cooker.
addition to the use of the pressure cooker as the boiling chamber, the
pressure cooker can be used in its conventional role for cooking bulk
food in a reduced amount of time, with minimum expenditure of fuel.
An additional feature of the Life Saver Distiller Kit is that the
system is inherently self-sterilizing to eliminate airborne bacteria or
other micro-organisms that may have entered the condensing coil between

self-sterilized by allowing the steam vapor to pass through the coil
