How does a solar powered water purification system work?

    There are a couple of types of solar powered water purification systems.  One type, which is manufactured by GE works just like a regular water purification system except that it is powered by a solar panel instead of using electricity.  More information is in the first link that i attached.  The sun can also be part of a water purification system by setting up a system that evaporates water from one area and transports it to another area where it condenses. I’ve actually done a project on this which is pretty cool.  Basically you put water in one container which is attached to another container by a tube.  The water from the first container evaporates, leaving behind the heavier molecules of contaminants which then goes through the tube into the other container where it condenses.  It’s not all that efficient but it works.
