The Complete Guide to Distilled Water

24th April 2019


This is everything you ever wanted to know about distilled water!

You may already have seen our series of guides to popular chemicals. We’ve already published the Complete Guide to Deionised Water and the Complete Guide to Demineralised Water.

Because water is such a popular chemical with a huge range of uses, we’re continuing this theme and have just published a Complete Guide to Distilled Water.

In this guide, we’re answering some of the most frequent questions we’re asked by our customers about purified water, and distilled water in particular.
