I would think that if your water had much by way of dissolved minerals, they might build up on the stone over time and be irksome. But that would depend on your water chemistry. I don't know if there's a pH at which it would degrade the stone? I'd think it would need to be pretty low.
Thanks Jack. It's a two-sided stone, one grit on one side and finer on the other, and it's all perfectly rectangular. I don't know the brand or anything, it's all in Chinese. I think my partner picked it up in Chinatown.

What are you using? Is it backed or mounted?

The tipi is uninsulated so unless the heater has been run, the inside and outside temperatures are essentially the same
