What do you do to separate salt and water?

Well salts are involatile, whereas water is (reasonably) volatile.


So one method of separation is to boil the water, and condense the distillate. It would not be economic to do this on a large scale: sea salt is collected from brine by evaporating the water, but here the sun is used to evaporate the water.
