Be still, my heart

Þa wif's quest for pure water (which I don't get, but I humor) has reached the Rube Goldberg stage. She had some sort of electric still that made drinking water, but it was cheap and eventually broke down. So, she went online and found a better still (complete with recipe book for various forms of hooch) and ordered it, the better to make distilled water for her consumption.

Being the mechanical sort that she is, she soon had it up and running. The output tube needs a little sealant of some sort, but it works. I'm guessing this is going to be a very time-consuming thing, and is going to take up space in the sink on a more or less regular basis. Space is already at a premium in this kitchen, but what the hey -- Happy wife, happy life.
