Solar distillation does not remove some minerals, microbes, and metals from the water. Some solar hot water systems heat the water in your home with a closed antifreeze-added solution that runs through pipes to heat the water. Unless you are talking about drinking the glycol solution or there is a leak into your drinking water then yes, it is edible.
