Why can't we make water?

I have a de-humidifier in my basement. I empty 1 gallon a day out of the basin where it is collected. I would not drink this water, but if I had a purification station at my house I might think twice about that.

Does anyone know what the by-product of gasoline in the combustion engine is? For every gallon of gasoline your burn you produce 1 gallon of water. Not all of this water is in the form of water, most of it is in the form of steam. Put your hand over an exhaust pipe for a few seconds.....notice anything? Besides it getting hot? Its wet!!!!

Ever wonder why exhaust systems rust from the inside out???????? Simple....Water builds up. Ever wonder why an idling car often has a puddle of water under the tail pipe? Know why there are weep holes at the end of mufflers??? so the water can escape, and prevent the inside from rusting. There are lots of ways to create water..........

Yes. Water, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, nitrogen dioxide and hydrocarbons. All of those gases, to some extent, are going to contaminate the water and will probably going to need a sophisticated filtering system to deal with them. The presence of these gases makes it too dangerous for the average joe to collect and use the water. Fine in a military sense as they have the means to purify it and are often out on patrols for most of the day, but it's just not viable for the general public.

High techs are always considered to serve the army first in U.S. ,regardless of the people who urgently and really need it.

It is not as easy as we think to make pure water at low expenses. So I dont think manufacturing water from hydrogen and oxygen would be a good choice. Collecting and purifying rains or reducing water pollution perhaps make more sense.

If Dr Max Whisson 's deveice is efficient of collecting water from the atmosphere and costs less energe,that is a good news to us indeed.

wouldn't a simple distilling system take care of this?
