LINCOLN, NE, Nov. 15, 2012 -- Lincoln, Neb. inventor Glenn Meder recently introduced his new water distillation system, Survival Still. The Survival Still system distills non-potable water so that it's consumable, making it the perfect solution in times of crisis like Hurricane Sandy, which left thousands of East Coast residents without adequate water supplies recently.

The Survival Still allows you to turn any water, including ocean water and microbiologically-contaminated water into a permanent supply of safe, high-purity potable water. The Still is a heavy-duty stainless steel water distiller that purifies water by boiling the water and collecting only the pure steam -- a process called distillation. The result is consistently pure water from any water source, without the use of filters.

"We take our water supply for granted until an emergency happens. Then we realize how vitally important a supply of safe, clean water is," said Glenn Meder, creator of Survival Still.

The Survival Still was a culmination of Meder's 20 years in the distillation industry and countless efforts to come up with the perfect emergency water distiller. After over 60 different versions of the product, he concluded with the current design, as he felt it was the best and simplest design with the highest functionality.

"My motivation for creating the Survival Still is two-fold. First I believe that every home in the USA should have a Survival Still in order to protect their family if some major emergency happens. Second, I believe that this technology will be immensely important in solving the global water crisis in third-world countries, which is one of the most serious problems facing this planet," said Meder.

Survival Still will be available for retail in December 2012, and pre-orders can be placed on their website, right now.
