This Aquamate Inflatable Solar Still is light, compact and simple to use. It uses solar radiation to distill and collect pure drinking water from sea water or other impure water, like urine.
It’s much like the device used by Kevin Costner in Waterworld, the post-apocalyptic movie where there is no land and little fresh water after the polar ice caps melt.
The manufacturer says this still will produce 500 to 2000 ccs (1 to 4 pints) of water per day and has been used by military and civilian services throughout the world for the past 40 years.
BTW, you can get this from Landfall Navigation for $200, other stores are a little more expensive as high as $226. And for probably just $5-10 you could build your own using plastic sheeting and other cheap parts in your garage, though it probably won’t float.
