Offering today a SS-5D Midi-Still automatic water distillation unit. The unit does not seem to heat up, though it may be simply me not hooking it up or knowing how to work it... it does buzz when you plug it in, an electrical sound, wich shuts off when you lift the float ball in the tank. It also has a switch for the fan, wich works well. Worse case scenario the heating element needs replacing... should be an easy fix. Also, the drain on the side has no cap, it will need that replaced (should be a std plumbing thing). apparantly form what I've read, you can plumb this unit in and it will sip water and keep distilling automatically a gallon at a time, up to 4 gallons per session. It appears to have about a one gallon tank.
I realy don't know what the thing is worth, similar units are over $1000 on the internet... this exact unit is currently listed on ebay for $499.95... my inability to get it to work combined with my desparate need to reclaim space in my garage are forcing me to offer it at a move it quick price of $100 (heck, it's probaly worth twice that in scrap stainless value!
