Eliodomestico' is a  solar household still for the developing countries.This project is intended to bring good drinking water to the families in the developing countries at no operating cost, starting from the sea water. It works like an upside-down coffee maker: during the day, the heat of the sun raises up the steam pressure into the black watertight boiler. The steam is forced down through the expansion nozzle, thus condensing against the lid. At the end of the day the Eliodomestico delivers 5 litres of fresh drinking water. The lower basin is specifically designed for the transport over the head, supporting this common habit. Eliodomestico is entirely made from poor, widely available materials. The technologies involved in the production are very simple and popular. This also make the maintenance much easier.
