This article begins with an overview of solar stills. Energy from the sun can even now be used efficiently to acquire sufficient amounts of safe water from saline water in regions within which solar energy coating is higher. The main aim of this study is to evaluate how much water can be generated by a double slope solar stills basin and also to make a comparison in aspects of productivity with single slope solar still.
