Production


In temperate climates, the Rainmaker 550 produces up to 1.5 gallons (six liters) per day in the summer, and approximately half that in the winter months. Thermal efficiency (60%) is equivalent to about 550 Watts when operated in full sunlight. Production is about 0.8 liters per sun hour (kWh/m2).

Taste


Solar stills make water naturally for a pure clean taste. Distilled water from the store or from electric distillers relies on boiling the water, which leaves the water with a flat taste. The distilled water from a SolAqua solar distiller does not acquire the "flat" taste of commercially distilled water since the water is not boiled. Solar stills use natural evaporation and condensation, which is the rainwater process. This allows for natural pH buffering that produces excellent taste as compared to steam distillation.
