Does The Aqua Stone Really Work?

Does Aqua Stone Work? With several months of cold weather still ahead of us, which means being couped up indoors then anything that is going to make the air a little more pleasant, like not being so dry may be a good thing. Is there a quick and simple and inexpensive way of doing this? Maybe the Aqua Stone has the ability to do this, so let’s find out.

The whole idea of this product is that as small as what it is, it is supposed to be able to put the humidity back in a room. It is based on a decorative stone that looks much like an egg which will absorb the water that you add to its base. It then releases the water into the air to moisturize an entire room.

The Claim
The Company claims that their product is the all natural way to add moisture to a room. Simply by the rock absorbing the water placed in the base it is able to dispel the moisture it has absorbed into the air. They state the secret is in the stones porous sphere. The promoters state that the Aqua Stone is just as effective as a standard electrical humidifier.

The Hype
It is somewhat difficult to come up with some unique hype for adding moisture to the air because there are tons of products on the market that can do this at all different price ranges. What the promoters have done here is focus on two interests that a consumer of a product of this may have, which is one how it lends to the decor of the room where it is going to be used in, and secondly the fact that it can be placed anywhere because it doesn’t have to be plugged in.

The Cost
The price that is set for this at the moment is about $30. which includes shipping and handling and if you pay another $9.95 to cover the shipping of a 2nd one then you will get it free.

The Commitment
It isn’t going to take much effort to use the Aqua Stone except to remember to keep adding water to the base so it can do its job. This simple item isn’t going to require much cleaning which is something that cannot be said for a lot of other humidifiers out there. A lot of times those units get calcium build up and require regular cleaning.

What did people do before all these electrical air moisturizers came out on the market? Or what is a cheap way now of doing this? Well many people will just set a pot or can of water over their heat vents and let the moisture evaporate into the air. Now it doesn’t look very attractive, and their is chance of the water getting spilled, but it does do the job. So is it worth $30. to buy a rock that is going to do the same thing? It is worth looking around to see if there is anything similar to this and what kind of attraction has it gained. Interestingly we can across an almost identical looking product advertised on Amazon as a Set of 2 Non Electric Humidifier for the price of about $25. but didn’t indicate the shipping price. It only has had one review so far, and it was fairly favorable. At the same time we can across some USB mini humidifiers. Then we took a look back at what we have seen in the past when it comes to air quality products. One we did a review on that was just the opposite to this product, was one that  took excessive moisture out of the air, which was DampRid, but we really want to keep our focus this time on putting humidity back into the air.

Final Aqua Stone Review

We have given the Aqua Stone a borderline Try/Buy rating which is a step up above our Risky Try/Buy. What was causing us a bit of concern really is the price. However it seems that there is a real interest in this type of product when you look at the USB types and the good ratings some of them are getting. It takes away any concerns about whether something as small as the Aqua Stone could really be effective.

Our Recommendation
If you really hate having to plug in your humidifier and you are only looking at an average sized room being dry and needing some moisture, then go ahead and choose this product. You don’t have to fuss about cleaning it and there are no filters to deal with as it is not an air purifier.

What do you think? Does Aqua Stone work or not?

Much water is required to moisturize a dry space of significant size. The product appears to hold a tiny amount of water and to release it very slowly. I’ll pass…

After about 2 weeks my Aqua Stone got mole spots. I could not clean it and threw it out.

My Aqua Stone got moldy spots also. I couldn’t find anything that would remove them.

Use hot water and a ‘magic eraser’. It’ll come right off!!

I bought these and have a set in our bedroom, I turn on the ceiling fan, and my husband stopped snoring, and I breathe better. They are quiet because they are not electric. That’s all I wanted from any humidifier, a good night sleep and no bleeding noses or coughing. We sleep better. I have to fill them every 2 days and once a week wash the dishes. Very little maintenance in my opinion. I highly recommend them.

I’ve had the aqua stone for about a month now. I picked it up for $12 in Walgreens. I have been using filtered water in mine and it’s been working nicely. They tell you to only use filtered or distilled water, NOT tap water which may have caused the mold on other units. It’s pretty enough that I have it on my breakfast table, this way I remember to refill it every couple days. It’s still relatively humid here in SC though.

I bought the Aqua Stone for my office cubicle. Seems to be helping, but as mentioned in previous comments, I have mold spots on the stone. I only use bottled water so the mold spots aren’t caused by using “tap water”.

It was a nice conversation piece prior to the mold spots!!
