Not trying to argue but I deal with this on a regular basis, in the plant area and in a lab. I can't say for sure how little impurity is required and there may be some still present, outside of the most expensive distillation and filtration systems, but I would think our systems can get it low enough to meet the requirement for the water to not boil.
(It doesn't appear to boil, if that's what you're talking about. But it is boiling, as evidenced by the distillate that condenses on the cooling coils)
There is a difference between boiling and evaporating. Evaporation does not require water to boil. Water can evaporate at virtually all temps below 212/100C. Put water in a cup and let it sit on your table, it will evaporate without boiling. It may take days for all of it to evaporate, but it will evaporate without ever having boiled.

Ok.

Now on to distilled water doesn't conduct electricity.

I understand how evaporation works, thanks. You said distilled water doesn't boil, I work in a place that can disprove that everyday. I can load 100kg of water in the vessel, turn the steam on the jacket, watch the liquid temp climb to 100C and flat line, vapour travels to the condenser,condenses and collects in a receiving vessel, transfer the distillate to another unit, reheat, till it flat lines again, watch the distillate collect on the coils and return to the vessel. Drain both units and I can have the 100 kg I loaded. I'd say it was boiling, no? I'm on nightshift till christmas eve, if you're near by and up late I can probably sneak you in to see it, if you like. (Plus, I'd like someone who's actually qualified to look over the boilers where I work, not the monkeys on our maintenance staff)

I don't have any vacation/holiday plans that include visiting Canada. Or I would look at them.

Vaporizing isn't boiling. Non steam humidifiers prove that almost everyday.

Did you ever put your condensate/distilled water in a cup and try and boil it.

Yes. In a flask in a lab and in another vessel cleaned to the same spec. Boiled both times. Come on up, I'll show you, I promise. Climate change has made southern Ontario nice this time of year, really.

LOL, I actually like the cold, hate the heat. I put on a sweat shirt when it drops below 20F. Above that, I don't know why people put on jackets or coats.

Your results are different then mine.

You passed all the tests so far to enter Canada. One left, what does your blood pressure do when you see this?

Your results are wrong. Or you live on a planet where the laws of physics do not apply.

Daniel Holzman has an excellent post back a few posts about what you may or may not be seeing when you are trying this experiment.

Basically, his post is what I said. Only he gave the reason behind it.

Now who wants to talk about distilled water not conducting electricity.
