A model of solar still is prepared using the least possible material and several experiments were performed on that still to analyze the various factors that have influence on the productivity of the solar still. Experiment was conducted in the month of July, 2016 between 6th July to 25th July, on 4 random days for continuous 5 hours and observations were taken at intervals of 1 hour. Result concluded that the pyramid shaped double basin solar still of water depth and surface area exposed to solar radiation as 2 mm and 2.25 sq. ft, respectively, can produce a distillate of 226.37 ml/ft2 or 2.437 l/m2 in 5 hours at an atmospheric temperature of 27.5o C and ambient temperature of 34.5o C.
