purified water is passed thru a membrane to removed dissolved solids followed usually passthen passing thru a deionization resin to obtain zero tds (total dissolved solids). distilled water is water that is heated and the vapor is collected as it condenses back to a liquid state. distilling removes the heavier tds.
