Distilled water

Is there a difference between still water and distilled water. Where can I get distilled water and which brands sell distilled water.

Thank you.

Hello Popelia

Still water is what they source from a natural spring. The mark to say that it is pure still water is SANBW. Look for this sign on the bottle.

Distilled water is what they use in car batteries or to make certain cool drinks. You can purchase distilled water from a pharmacy.

Purified water is made in a lab to use in medicines. It is a certain process that they use to purify the water of any impurities so that the water can be used to make injectables or liquid medicine that require water.

Kind regards.
