We’ve had a number of people calling us asking if our premium water distillers remove radioactive contaminants from water. Here is a third-party lab test from 2005 that shows our perfect scores for removing uranium from water.
Here is the before test.
Here is the after test.

An explanation on how to read (and compare) the test data would help me (and probably others) a lot.
Ryan Ledden says
The before test shows that there were 40.5 pCi/L of uranium present in the water with an error margin of plus or minus 3.19%. The after test result was 0 pCi/L present with an error margin of plus or minus 0.562%. Radioactive testing is a little bit different because it isn’t a measure of mass like mg/L (ppm). The measurement pCi/L stands for pycocuries per liter. A pycocurie is a measure of the decay rate of two atoms of the contaminant. This can be converted to mg/L using the atomic weight of the element but comes out to be a scientific number that isn’t a very good comparison (7.32 x 10^-12 ppm). That being said the results still show very effective removal of uranium.
