However, I wonder how much of the contaminated water would make it into the new clean vessel VIA the bowl when you are tipping the edge that has been floating in it to fill the new vessel? Just saying.....I can clean out the insides of my distiller with 2 tablespoons of vinegar and some water and let it soak for an hour and wash it out. It never touches the fresh distilled water. I do that about once every 5-7 gallons to keep the mineral buildup down. Interesting alternatives! You can see my holder is a large Mason Jar turned into a cistern!gallon and a gallon and a half of the clea
