    But why is Lord Vader doing this? Surely he could of sent one of his minions out to do it. Or used the force even. Does Darth Vader even need to drink water??
    Everyone needs to drink water. He is probably a guy in fancy dress not actually Darth Vader.

    sea water => filterer => drinking container. your image makes perfect sense.
    You will struggle to desalinate water with that filter...

    That filter will remove ions such as calcium and magnesium (I've just done a research project on this oh so glorious topic)

    To remove salt, you generally want to boil the water, catch the steam and let it condense again. I never looked into chemical methods, but there probably is a really obvious one.

    Just for the record, I am incredibly bored. And writing this is infinitely more amusing that writing an essay about Crystal Field Theory....

    An alternative explanation, or alternative desalination filter? Either way, no.

    I was just pointing out your explanation does not make sense. That looks very much like a passive water filter. You need power to desalinate.
