Solar distillation tests were performed with samples of muddy water in a deep basin type solar still. Results presented show that, on a 24 h basis, the distillate output is independent of the muddiness of the water sample. However, during the daytime, periods between sunrise and sunset, the output increases with the muddiness of the water.
