No, no, no and….. NO! While boiling water does have a beneficial effect when attempting to remove or kill off bacteria in drinking water, it will make the concentration of metals in the water INCREASE, not decrease.

Boiling water generates steam — and steam does NOT carry away metals with it. To remove metals from drinking water you must either filter the water using a reverse osmosis system or properly distill the water.
