The Survival Still is a non-electric, emergency water distiller. The Survival Still uses the process of distillation, which is recommended by FEMA and Red Cross as the most effective purification method for purifying water during an emergency. The Survival Still is so effective that it can even produce high-purity, sterile drinking water from ocean water for the life of the system.
The Survival Still never needs filters. It’s designed and made in the USA with heavy duty stainless steel and it has no moving parts to break down, which means that if you take care of it, it should last you a very long time. It’s small and compact and is designed to be used in conjunction with standard size pots that you have in your home. The Survival Still is the ultimate emergency drinking water system available today.
Note: This product includes the Top and Bottom Pot. Stainless steel pots that perfectly compliment the Survival Still. The bottom pot is a stainless steel 5-quart dutch oven. The top pot is a 12-quart stock pot.

Raw Water Requirements: Source water should be potable water, ocean water or pool water. FEMA and the Red Cross recommend using the process of distillation on contaminated water during an emergency, but user does so at their own risk.
Performance: Third-party testing demonstrated the reduction of contaminated ocean water from over 30,000 parts per million (ppm) to less than 3 ppm. Testing on other distillers has shown 99+% removal of uranium, cesium, and other metals, as well as excellent removal of petroleum-based chemicals. No claim is made that the Survival Still is perfect or that it offers 100% removal of contaminants, because there is no water treatment process that is perfect nor is there such a thing as 100% pure water.
Production Rate: The production rate depends upon the amount of heat/energy you put into the boiling water. Our tests showed a rate of 1/2 gallon of distilled water per hour.
Pot Sizes: The Survival Still is designed to be used with the pots you already have at home. The bottom pot should provide a stable base and should have an inner diameter no smaller than 9" and an outer diameter no larger than 11". The top pot should have a bottom diameter no smaller than 8 5/8" and no greater than 9 5/8". The top pot should be made of stainless steel, be clean on the bottom and hold at least 8 to 12 quarts of water. The bottom pot does not need to be stainless steel.
Heat Source: You can use many different heat sources. We recommend the use of a controlled heat source which you can turn off after the batch is complete. In addition, the heating surface must be level and stable.
Warranty: GAEMRIC, INC. offers a limited Lifetime Warranty on the Survival Still.
The Survival Still was designed by Glenn Meder, one of the world's leading experts in distillation technology. The Survival Still has been carefully designed to be extremely effective, easy to use, and very durable. It has no moving parts and no welds so it won't break in an emergency. The combination of 18 gauge, heavy-duty stainless steel combined with it's shape gives it tremendous strength.
The Survival Still was designed in the USA, and is made in the USA.
