The water is purified in an evaporation chamber. This camera features an aluminum bucket painted black to absorb sunlight and heat. The water to be purified is added and heated until it evaporates. The casserole dish has a transparent plastic cover and captures and condenses water vapor. An interior pipe channels this water to the exterior tank, where it is ready for our consumption.
