Make Fire From Water fireplace…

Aqueon Need DIY version. This Aqueon fireplace by Heat & Glo actually uses regular water to create fire. Ordinary tap water (preferably distilled) is supplied to the fireplace through a pipe or tank, a 220 volt electrical service then separates the hydrogen and oxygen atoms through electrolysis, the Aqueon ignites the hydrogen, and ta-dah, fire! The oxygen is then added for color and brightness, while the rest is released into the room. It doesn’t require venting because it doesn’t produce any harmful emittents like carbon monoxide — just water vapor. Link.

  1. Ok, so this is pretty basic science right? Why then does this fireplace cost so much? I’m curious what the make community thinks: could this be done @ home cheap and safe?

  2. This is a great novelty item and nothing more. To do this on a large enough scale to make it worthwhile, it would require way too much electricity to run. Also, the amount of water vapour it would produce would make it unsuitable for prolonged usage indoors.
