Does anyone know where I can buy distilled water please?

Posted 21st Apr 2016Available: National
I'm trying to buy distilled water (not deionised). It's not for a car battery or iron etc, so must be distilled water, but I don't seem to be able to get it anywhere. I know that you can buy it online, but the delivery charges seem to be high. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Buying distilled water – where can I buy distilled water?

Distilled water is water that has been purified to strip it of its minerals. Many people opt to buy distilled water for a variety of purposes, such as use in aquariums, home laboratory experiments or cars and other machinery. Some also drink distilled water as they believe it to be healthier than tap water or bottled water.

Due to it being only used for niche purposes, distilled water can be difficult to come by. It also tends to be far more expensive than regular water. This short guide will give you advice on tips and where to buy distilled water in the UK, so that you can save more when buying it.

Where to buy distilled water

There are a few big supermarket chains that sell distilled water. Asda sell CarPlan De-Ionised Water suitable for your car battery or steam iron, while Morrisons sells Ironing Water which designed only for ironing your clothes (as the water has been scented). Drinkable distilled water used to be available from Superdrug on the high street, but they have since discontinued selling it.

It’s also possible to make your own distilled water, which might be a good option if you regularly need distilled water and don’t want to spend a fortune. You can buy pre-made equipment that takes tap water and distills it for you. If you have a science background, you could also use laboratory equipment to distill water. Both of these options are cheaper than buying pre-made distilled water, but come with an initial investment upfront.

Finding Sellers of Distilled Water Near Me

If you’re looking to find where to buy distilled water near you, the best way to do this is by using the store locators for supermarket chains that sell distilled water. These are available for both Asda and Morrisons. However, you may have to go to a bigger one of these stores to find distilled water, as smaller stores from the two chains are unlikely to sell this speciality item.
