    Nice piece of simple engineering.. Only weakness is the filter and it's replacements.

    Would be even BETTER to use REAL Solar power to distill water in large community sized volumes. No filters required and potentially larger volumes...

    Scale problem there. Also cost. But, yes, in large cooperative communities, a better solution.
