Compare solar distillation to distillation performed in the Science Lab

Solar distillation in the lab is obviously done via machine so automatically and it is using fire. Then it is condensed through a specially made pipe. And when you do it yourself it is done manually using natural heat from the sun and raw, everyday materials.
