Solar distillation is used to produce drinking water or to produce pure water for lead acid batteries, laboratories, hospitals and in producing commercial products such as bottled water. It is recommended that drinking water has 100 to 1000 mg/l of salt to maintain electrolyte levels and for taste. Some saline water may need to be added to the distilled water for acceptable drinking water. This work showed the simple method of water distillation by the use of solar still. The experiment was performed at university of Nigeria, Nsukka. The 22 litres of brackish water used in the experiment yielded maximum volume of 3.6 litres. The maximum temperature recorded in the experiment was 33 C.
