A single slope single basin solar still has been provided with a dripping arrangement to pour saline water drop by drop in the basin. The system has been tested with dripping of saline water and different energy absorbing materials like pebbles, black granite stones, and concrete stones. It has been found that the concrete stones in the basin with dripping of saline water to maintain least water depth have validated with the experimental results. Experiments were conducted in climate conditions of Chennai [latitude 13º 04’N, long 80º 17’E] in Tamilnadu from February to October 2013 with least water depth in basin use of energy absorbing materials. The experimental result which use of absorbing materials high production rate in concrete stones with compared other energy absorbing materials.
