This research is intended to design and manufacture a multilayer solar distiller at a promising cost. The solar distiller manufactured has the same design as simple water distillers, which are based on the principle of evaporation and condensation with a different energy cycle, where the processes of evaporation and condensation are completely isolated. The obtained results showed that the amount of produced water has increased by 60% compared to the traditional solar distillers, where the system is not isolated. No catalysts were used, and the areas of the evaporation and condensation have also been increased leading to the production of distilled water under natural conditions and low cost. A comparison between the theoretical and experimental results is performed. The productivity was as follows: 8.45, 11.04, 12.20, 21.44, 18.69, 16.15, and 14.49 L/day in January, February, March, September, October, November, and December, respectively.
