They take water, evaporate it, catch the vapors and let them condense. Since water leaves behind impurities when it evaporated, the caught vapor is (in theory anyway) pure water.
This sort of answered another question I have. I know rain water is good for house hold plants, but what about for aquariums? Granted the water is not collected from an area with acid rain 8O
