Dangers of Pouring Water Into Your Fireplace

When we need to put out a fire, we know our go-to options are usually to let it burn out or to pour water on it. But while pouring water on a fire might work when you’re camping, pouring it in your fireplace is not the best option. Pouring water on a fireplace can cause damage. Many materials used in your fireplace and chimney (such as masonry and steel) are water-sensitive and can become damaged when they absorb water.

This causes weakness and rust in the chimney which can be expensive to fix. Also, when water mixes with creosote, a chemical commonly found in chimneys, it makes a strong smell that will spread throughout your home. it can interrupt the ventilation and can push all of the smoke back into your home. Vapors that are supposed to go out of the chimney instead stay inside for you to breathe. Inhaling smoke can cause breathing problems, dizziness, and even long-term health issues after enough exposure.

Carbon monoxide is also released from wood-burning fires which can be poisonous in large quantities. Worst of all your chimney can potentially explode from the steam produced. So no you should never put a fireplace fire out with water.
