Did you know that most CPAP machine manufacturers recommend using distilled water for their CPAP machines? CPAP machines, as you may know, are designed to provide continuous air pressure for the user. It is prescribed for those with sleep apnea to make sure the user is breathing well throughout the night. In fact, “over 8 million people in the USA use these devices yearly, with an increase of about 8% a year.” 1 With daily use, machines can become the perfect environment for bacterial growth. Distilled water is the ideal way to maintain a CPAP machine and built-in humidifiers.
Distilled Water is Contaminant Free
If you are looking for water that is bacteria, virus, and mineral-free, distilled water is the perfect solution. Did you ever wonder what that crusty buildup is? That buildup comes from calcium and magnesium in your water. Are you worried about bacteria growth in your CPAP? Pure Water distillers produce clean, fresh, distilled water for daily use.
Consider other contaminants found in tap water like lead, arsenic, or nitrates. No one wants to breathe in a mist containing bacteria, industrial waste, or whatever else could be present at any given time in tap water. You might not have thought about it before, but water quality isn’t as consistent as you think, and as soon as a boil alert occurs, you will need bottled water if you don’t have a Pure Water Distiller.
The Real Price of Bottled Water
Many people purchase bottled water for their CPAP machines. Did you know that bottled water is often just filtered water? Sometimes, it’s not cleaner than tap water, and it’s not good enough for your CPAP machine. There have been cases where bottled water was found to have e. Coli, a deadly bacteria. According to Consumer Reports, the FDA knew about it, but did not take significant action.2 Should you trust your health and well-being to anyone but yourself?
If the quality of bottled water is unknown, what about the immense waste it produces. Did you know that only 9% of plastic gets recycled?3 Adding to the environmental disaster that plastic waste makes on top of having to go to the store and buy it and then lug it home isn’t worth it. Having a home water distiller gives you control over your water supply. Not only will you have amazingly clean water for your CPAP machine, but you can also use distilled water for drinking water, cooking, plants, your humidifier, hair, iron, and much more.
Crusty Hard Water
If you live in a place with hard water, you are familiar with what it can do to your sinks, tubs, and pipes. Many people buy a water softener to get rid of that extra calcium and magnesium. If you use hard water, you see that same crust develop in your irons, teapots, humidifiers, and your CPAP machine. Distilled water will keep your CPAP machine clear of buildup. Produce mineral-free water with made in the USA water distillers produced by Pure Water.
Why You Should Own a Water Distiller
There are so many benefits of distilled water use. Buying plastic jugs of distilled water is wasteful, burdensome, and unnecessary. Pure water makes countertop and automatic water distillers to meet the needs of individuals, families, and businesses. If you think of your CPAP machine’s cost, humidifier, iron, or other devices in the home, you will likely want to protect those investments. In addition to that, drinking distilled water will quickly win you over. It’s so refreshing! Distilled water has no color, nothing floating in it, no odors, and no taste besides clean, refreshing distilled water. Make crystal clear ice and enjoy the health benefits of drinking water over soda or juice. Buying a water distiller allows you to control your water supply, invest in your health and wellness, and keep your CPAP and other devices that require water working in tip-top condition.
Other Uses for Distilled Water

I have been using a cpap machine for 14 years and recently been having difficulty finding distilled water in stores and pharmacies and have been concerned because I can’t go without it or not using water at all
Heidi Garvin says
That’s one reason why it’s so nice to have a water distiller of your own! Then you don’t have to worry about the stores running out.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH 🙏
