Aqua Stone for Humidity

You may have seen the advertisements on tv for the Aqua Stone.  I was intrigued, so I thought it time to give this a try.  The concept could not be more simplistic.  Place a porous orb in a bowl of water and humidify the air.  That is pretty much how it works.  Check it out.

The "Elegant" Natural Room Humidifier.  I would have bought it just for that statement.  But there were other reasons why I wanted to give this a try.

Adding moisture to the air in the winter months is good for many things, not the least of which is the ability to cut down on static electricity.  Ouch!!!

Here is the base - a porcelain bowl in which you add water.

And the porous orb which sits in the porcelain base.

Here you see the underside of the orb.  Really an ingenious design.

The whole thing is kind of idiot proof.  There are no complicated instructions.  No fill line.  Just fill the bowl with water, but not too much so that it pours over the sides when you place the orb inside.

In with the orb and you are good to go.

I took this picture after it had been sitting in water for awhile.  I wanted to see if the picture would show the change in color after the water was fully absorbed, but it does not.  It is wet to the touch.  Or maybe not wet, but fully saturated.

Does the Aqua Stone work.  I believe it does.  It takes no electricity.  You do not have to worry about bacteria or fungi growing inside the tank like you would with a standard humidifier.  And it can be placed easily throughout the house.
