Water is the fundamental need of humanity. The consumption of water is rising with each day. The major parts of the available water, i.e. 97%, are saline seawater and 2% is ice and glaze. Just 1% of the water is pure drinking water. Therefore in order to satisfy the demand for fresh water, it is important to turn the impurity of salty sea water or brackish water into pure water. The Solar Single Slope Single Basin (SSSB) is not being experimentally investigated. The experimentation was performed during the months of May and June 2020 under Indian climatic conditions. The efficiency of still cotton cloth with marbles and jute cloth with marbles is 50.00 per cent and 46.15 per cent respectively, higher than average.
