The simulated performance of solar earth water still, suitable for very wet ground like beaches or swamps has been investigated. The still is essentially a single slope FRP still with a number of large holes in the bottom. It is seen that the daily distillate output of this still is almost the same as that of the conventional single slope FRP still viz 3.06 liters/ day at Raipur, India in March.
