The Vortex Non-Electric Water Distiller Kit made by Highwater Filters.

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.

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. We think you will agree that the Vortex Non-Electric Water Distiller is the best water distiller of its kind available anywhere.

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.

Flow Rate Info

Flow rate depends on heat intensity. Tests conducted got results of over 1 gallon an hour when used in conjunction with the Vortex adaptor and high heat. Without Vortex adaptor the results were .62 gallons per hour.
