How to Make Distilled Water for Battery?

Here, I have listed some tricks you can use to make distilled water at home. I am sure you have two pots and a stove nearby! Now, pour some water into the pots. Oh yes! You need some ice cubes too! That’s all you need for making distilled water.

Step One – Use a large pot of water

Place a large pot on the burner and add as much water as you need. First, place the small pot inside the large one. The small pot should float by the water in the large pot. The drill is to circulate the water vapor. Make sure there is plenty of airflow between the two pots.

Step Two – Increase the temperature of the pot of water

In the second stage, of course, you need to turn the burner on! Try to keep it between medium to medium-high flame. Alternatively, you can turn on a steady simmer between 180 to 200 degrees F. the trick is to maintain the range perfectly.

Step Three – Place the lid upside down

Furthermore, after a few minutes, place the lid upside down. This will help to accumulate the condensed water easily. Once you are done with the process, take out some ice cubes. After that, you need to fill the inverted lids with plenty of ice cubes. This will trigger the condensation process.

Step Four – Wait till water collect

Sit back and relax till the first batch of ice cubes melts down. Then, you need to keep supplying the ice cubes twice an hour. You can repeat the supply 4 to 5 times. At this point, be careful when dumping the melted ice outside.

Step Five – Store them properly

After two to three hours of process, you will notice the dripped-down water in the small pot. Finally, you can collect the water and use it. Again, from 8 to 9 cups of regular water, you can produce only one cup of distilled water.

Interestingly, making distilled water is the ultimate fun. Once you are successful in the process, you can try out making a larger amount next time. However, you might be wondering how much time you need to invest in the process!

If you have two to three hours in hand, you can easily produce a large amount within the same time. So, is it the only way to make distilled water for the inverter battery? No. Today, I will introduce another method to make distilled water for inverter batteries.

How to make distilled water for batteries using Solar Distillation process

Interestingly, the equipment is almost the same for both processes. However, you can use a large-diameter pot with a glass cover. Even the process is also scientifically the same. The only difference is, in place of the burner, you will use solar heat.

Therefore we can say, this process is sustainable and environment-friendly. On the other hand, you might not need to participate in the process actively. Let me just give a quick snap of the process.

If you already read the first part, you know the equipment. Just like the first process, you will place a small pot on a larger pot. Make sure the pots are made of steel or glass. It will help to absorb the heat from the sun.


Checklists for the solar distillation process

  • Moreover, when the process is all about condensation, the hotter the climate, the faster the result.
  • Hence, always make sure to place the pots on a hot sunny day. It is better to try out the process between 12 to 4 P.M.
  • If you see the fig., you will find the large pot is quite stretched. It will help to enhance hot air circulation.
  • In addition, if you can use a glass lid, you will easily monitor the result from the top.
  • If you don’t have a glass lid, you can make a simple solar cover. However, the lid of the jar should be slightly insulated.
  • You can also use a glass jar and put some water in a container instead. The condensed water would be accumulated in the jar. In that case, you can place the jar on a solar reflector to increase the heat level.
  • You should fill the water when the remnant water gets evaporated.

Competitive analysis between the two processes of distillation

Now, let us compare the two methods and find out with process is easier:

Parameters of ComparisonFuel distillationSolar distillation
TimeTwo to three hoursFive to six hours (depending on the climate)
LocationAnywhereThe hot and humid region is more suitable
EquipmentTwo pots(large and small), ice cubes, burner, glass lid.Two pots or jars, glass lid, cold water.
AccessibilityEasily accessibleRequire proper climatic set-up
AffordabilityConsumption of fuel might cost a few amountsRelatively cheap

Now, it’s your take to choose what is convenient for you. While solar distillation is a restricted process, fuel distillation can be done anywhere. Hence, based on the availability of the resources, you can try out one of these two methods.

I hope this blog has helped you to learn the two processes. So, if you want to know more important facts to improve the performance of your inverter battery, please continue reading.
