Forget the crystals, just fill Oasis with Distilled

Can anyone who has been using the gel or water jewels for a long time comment as to how well they are working over a long period of time? I am thinking about doing this to my Oasis, but am curious for long-term feedback now that folks did this several years ago.

Just plain old distilled water seems to work real well.
I was just given an Oasis to go with the Trunkador:

So, let me get this straight you just take out the foam and fill it with distilled water, no beads? no "ice?" just water nothing else?

Wanted to note that I did this mod over 2.5 years ago to an Oasis ULTRA (the little slim one) that had been bombed to me. I've been using the same bag of "cracked ice" since then that S15 recommended and have had ZERO issues. Every 1-2 months I check it and recharge them.

For the Ultra cartridge I actually broke it apart to get the foam out and then superglued it back together. I'd love to use just water like you guys do with the larger Oasis models but I'd more than likely have to position it standing upright which is not optimal.

Best DIY Mod I have done to date and mad props to S15DK!

On the surface this is pure genius. I too had zero success with beads or KL in the Hydra instead of the foam.
I cut a new chunk of foam and it quickly and solidly returned my foot locker humidor to perfect humidity. Then after only about a month I checked the foam and the entire underside was speckeled with white mold spores. Busto.
I am going to mock up something where the Hydra containing only distilled water sits in a container of KL and see how it goes over a few months.

Really, I am sorry to hear this.

As stated a bit ago, i am now doing straight water in the cartridge with some grain alcohol. works fine.

Straight water is rocking so far. The humidor is solid and barely half the water is gone. Looks like a winner here.
